Pat Green - What I'm For Lyrics




I'm for wildflowers in the window
Mechanics you can trust
I'm for crackers in my chili
And leavin' grudges in the dust

I'm for drive thru order takers
Who can muster up a smile
I'm for takin' in that stray dog
That's been hangin' 'round for awhile

I'm for turning off the TV
Gettin' off the internet
I'm for learning all the words
To the Gettysburg Address

I'm for dusty pawn shop guitars
And boxers passed their prime
I'm for soakin' up the wisdom
When an old man speaks his mind.

I'm for laid off factory workers
When the wolf is at the door
You don't have to guess what I'm against
If you know what I'm for

I'm for Texas Margaritas
Gettin' outta debt
I'm for havin' faith in something
That hasn't happened yet

For the shy kid in the corner
Afraid to ask the girl to dance
For the ex-con outta prison
Who just wants a second chance

For the inner city teacher
With her heart stuck in her throat
Can still see God in every child
And never gives up hope

I'm for dusty pawn shop guitars
And boxers passed their prime
I'm for soakin' up the wisdom
When and old man speaks his mind

I'm for Detroit factory workers
When the wolf is at the door
You don't have to guess what I'm against
If you know what I'm for

I'm counting all my blessings
When the wolf is at my door
You don't have to ask what I'm against
You don't have to guess what I'm against

  1. Michelle N

    we need more songs of morals and patriotism like this

    Benjamin Clasen

    Amen. This is a Good one to share a whole bunch on MLK day when people might still feel a bit divided. Just a suggestion from someone who Loves my country again when it got pretty tough to do that for me for a long time.

    Boxers.....the sport im sure! WHy the hell would he be talking about all these people and then underwear??LOL..."past their prime" is a common phrase for boxers and athletes....I dont know any man that has been for old underwear, but this could be a first.

  10. Jeff Martin

  11. William Wright

    @nickitynick8 he means, i believe, the dog... as in an old dog that is old and basically useless but you love it all the same

  12. Pete Robertson

    This song defines a positive approach to defining ones values as opposed to the disagreeing with the way someone else chooses to live. I heard this song for the first time a couple of weeks ago and shouted "NOW THERE YOU HAVE IT!"

  13. Naadomail

    Definately Undies....You guys must not know Pat.
