Montgomery Gentry - Where I Come From Lyrics

Don't you dare go runnin' down my little town where I grew up
And I won't cuss your city lights
If you ain't ever took a ride around
And cruised right through the heart of my town
Anything you say would be a lie
We may live our lives a little slower
But that don't mean I wouldn't be proud to show ya'

Where I come from
There's an old plow boy out turning up dirt
Where I come from
There's a preacher man in a cowboy shirt
Where I come from
When a couple of boys fight in the parking lot
No, nobody's gonna call the cops
Where I come from

See that door right there, man I swear
It ain't never been locked
And I Guarantee that it never will
That old man right there in the rocking chair
At the courthouse square I'll tell you now
He could buy your fancy car with hundred dollar bills
Don't let those faded overalls fool ya
He made his million without one day of schoolin'

Where I come from
There's a pickup truck with the tailgate down
Where I come from
The pine trees are singing a song of the south
Where I come from
That little white church is gonna have a crowd
Yeah, I'm pretty damn proud of where I come from

Where I come from
There's a big ole' moon shining down at night
Where I come from
There's a man done wrong gonna make it right
Where I come from
There's an old plow boy out turning up dirt
Where I come from
There's a preacher man in a cowboy shirt
Where I come from
When a couple of boys fight in the parking lot
No, ain't nobody gonna call the cops

Yeah, that river runs across that Oakland rock
Where I come from
Where I come from

Montgomery Gentry Where I Come From Comments
  1. Bobby Emon

    How to find on Spotify

  2. Future LEO

    Fair winds and following seas

  3. J Murphy

    This video would be way better if it didn't show heavily armored soldiers invading a foreign country of inadequately armed civilians defending their homeland.

  4. Dan McCaffrey

    Hey all.
    Had to put this out there, like it or not, that's not what's important.
    I was a pretty sheltered, pretty spoiled kid.
    Didn't really know much about anything, really until my 30's.
    Moved around a lot, Dad's work or mom and dad splitting up.
    I never actually had a hometown.
    I'm almost 50.
    Still don't.
    But I'll tell you this:
    If you relate to this song from experience, you are one lucky son of a bitch.
    EVERYTHING in this song is all I ever wanted.


    I’ve loved this song, band, and video so much since I was a little kid, and I’ve watched this and listened to it so many times, but I just can’t for the life of me understand the connection between the lyrics and the music video theme. From what I hear, the lyrics just seem so literal and honest about a small U.S.A. town. So if anybody could help me to understand better that would be very much appreciated, because I always took it as a song about an actual town, but maybe somehow it is all just a metaphor for the military? I am also conservative and live in “the country” sort of, and I mean absolutely no disrespect at all, and I would simply just like to become more cultured and intelligent. Thanks so much! 😄😄

  6. Everett Kazmarek II

  7. Junior8888

    It’s my pleasure to serve, every man and woman that leaves his small town like Fall Creek, Wisconsin is one working hand that is not helping a farm or small business.

    When we come home, it is with overwhelming joy that we return to the farm.

    The part where he said the old man in the rocking chair could buy your fancy car with hundred dollar bills was my favorite part about that song and in my small town there is a lot of people that have a lot of money but they don’t show it. Also love for the fallen soldiers.

  50. Paula t

    Awesome song, but they should fire whoever directed this video. Has nothing to do with the song really. And stop spinning the mic stand man, one scene with that would have been plenty.

  59. Shayna Bowen

    I may be only a 15 year old kid in a small southern town, but to those city people who don't understand our lives and a sense of pride we have for our soldiers and veterans- just be quite. I grow up every day in a Christian and military town- and I have nothing but respect for my town and the preachers wearing cowboy shirts, the boys fighting in the parking lot, the people in that little white church, and that man whose done wrong and whose goin' to make it right

  60. love Air Force

    I may not be from a small town (Eastern Shore - Virginia) but with all of the men and woman who serve's for the Freedom of every Amercian in the U.S. I truly do respect them for putting there live's in the fear of harm. And I do agree that this song does show that this band of Mongomery Gentry does respect every man and woman who serves in the forces whther it be in the Army Navy and or Marines that they and this song does show that they do respect our veterans. R.I.P. Troy Gentry you were taken away at a such young age and maybe one day I will get to the pearly gates to meet you.
