Luke Combs - Blue Collar Boys Lyrics




We were just river kids
Pickin' up stones like David did
Watchin' them longnecks break off of Freight Train Bridge
We went to church in a Detroit car
Our daddies drank draft at the local bar
With an achin' back just like old Granddad did

And we like cold keg beer and fixin' up trucks
Old bird dogs and the woman we love
Maxwell House steamin' out of a coffee cup
We say our prayers, send 'em to the sky
Bust our backs, barely getting by
Carolina to California up to Illinois
Yeah, there's guys like us
Blue collar boys

We're the white paint peeling off a picket fence
The rust stains covering a Craftsman wrench
When the sun's coming up you can bet we're clocking in
Cash our paycheck, two day break, and do it again

We like cold keg beer and fixin' up trucks
Old bird dogs and the woman we love
Maxwell House steamin' out of a coffee cup
We say our prayers, send 'em to the sky
Bust our backs, barely getting by
Carolina to California up to Illinois
Yeah, there's guys like us
Blue collar boys

We're worn out boots and old Levi's
The wind behind the stars and stripes

And we like cold keg beer and fixin' up trucks
Old bird dogs and the woman we love
Maxwell House steamin' out of a coffee cup
We say our prayers, send 'em to the sky
Bust our backs, barely getting by
Carolina to California up to Illinois
Yeah, there's guys like us
Yeah, there's guys like us
Blue collar boys

    I never judge, but I love blue collar guy but my husband is totally not that. He’s my soulmate, but he’s not blue collar. Love my lifestyle but yearn to drive a Super Duty as my daily driver. I’m in a Lexus.

  24. Cody Betka

    Being from the younger generation who cries that they have to work and want everything handed to them I love that I’m a blue collar worker and work for what I have.

  25. Anthony Santostefano

    Literally can get this song off repeat! Luke combs never seems to disappoint, all his songs are amazing

  26. Darcyyy

    Not gonna lie that “maxwell house steaming out of a coffee cup” hit me right in the soul . That’s my coffee and it isn’t a super common one I feel like . But it just made my entire day . And brings a huge smile to my face when I hear it But this whole song is amazing, shit the whole album is ! I love this man with all of my heart .

  27. Caalm, Coolz, Collective

    Blue collar work on duty, red collar work off duty. Communing with the red pilled in the blue industries.
    It appears the Awakened prefer to work with the raw elements in some form ⏹️⭐

  28. Daithi Rievley

    Theres not many songs where i can identify with every word but when i find them theyre all by Luke Combs

  29. Tylor Sanon

    This song in concert would be so insane

    Josh Click

    It was instantly became one of my favorites when he sang it before it was released

  30. Hunt31 Fish31

    The dislikes are the city boys who never lived a life like this 👆

    Levi Charlton

    Hunt31 Fish31 so true

    justincurtberry berry

    im sadly from the rural city area but i try to live as country as possible. cant choose where your born but sure can choose how you live

  31. Hunt31 Fish31

    The dislikes are the city boys that never live a life like this 👆

    Daithi Rievley

    I'm a hunting, fishing, longboarding, paddleboarding, beer and coffee drinking, weed smoking, heating and air duct installer, city country boy combo.

  32. TF Vlogs

  35. Patrick Bibb

    Blue collar boy from Illinois here

  36. Chris Kelly

    Guy sings "Maxwell House steaming out of a coffee cup" and it's like one of the best lines ever sung 😂. I love every single one of his songs..... He cannot make a bad song even if he tried.

    Darcyyy

    Chris Kelly right ! Honestly I’m stoked about that line because that’s my coffee and I was so excited lol . I know a lot of people drink community or Folgers so hearing that one coming from my favorite country was the best lol . But honestly I love every single song of his . That’s never happened with me and a artist there usually atleast one song I don’t care for . But not with Luke lol .

  37. Kyle Simmons

    Illinois state blue collar boy right here

  38. Lamar E Foster

    love this song

  39. Fik-Shun

  48. Aaron smith

    Any dislikes are white collar boys!

  49. Kyle Ramey

    Iron them blue collars down and let's get to work boys !
    This is the music I like to hear.

  50. Randy Potter

    It must be hard for him to pick which songs to put on his album. Everything he sings sounds so good. Probably helps that he writes all his own music or he would have way too many songs to pick from if singing other ppls. This guy is going to be around for a long time. Luke Bryan kinda needs to step it up.

    Tyler Morgan

    Luke Bryan just needs to quit.

  51. 34 Stros

    Proud blue collar boy from Houston, Texas

    Sip on a pot every sun rise and say thanks that the Lord for another day in this Ole crazy ball ofnwater and dirt.

    Mr Combs your killing it son loving it in Chickuamaga.

  64. Atlanta Wildfire

    I like the song and am a big fan... BUT I personally think it sounds like it’s been auto tune and that if it has Luke should stay away from it. But it’s still a good song overall

  65. 4D Ambience

    Enjoy the best Country artist of today

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover You know what they say: Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and yours appears to be rotting it stinks so bad.
    Also, you might not want to talk about anyone else being useless when you haven't said a single useful thing in your pitiful existence.

  79. K93 MrBlackRabbit / House

    Added to my playlist. Love you Luke. Thanks for the amazing music... by far my favorite country artist, your song Hurricane was one of the first country songs I ever learned all the words of. I didn’t start listening to country until I was 18. Now 20 almost 21... and I can’t wait to be able to get drunk and dance to your music at my country dancehall. ♥️

  82. Cesar Suarez

    Could he surpass George Strait When it’s ask said and done?🤔🤔

    Denyell Krutke

    I think so.. I just had this debate with some one the other night.. I think luke combs is going to go down in history with all the Greats!!

    zippolover

    @Denyell Krutke I 100% agree with you. He'll definitely go down as one of the best surpassing some of the big named guys out rn.

    @Purple Grey I'm glad you like to read them, I have issues listening to songs for the first time, so I read the lyrics as I play the song.

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover you don't have to be rude

    Abbey Crawford

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover wow...I'm glad that you know how to spell rude. Have a nice night!!

    Kat Bowl

    @countrygirl countrymusiclover Damn girl. You sure can ramble on about the goofiest shit.
    One thing's for sure: You can make enemies in a hurry.
    You might want to seek help immediately for that know it all attitude you've got. It's not helping you at all.
