Rodney Atkins - Friends With Tractors Lyrics

I sat beside a man from Hollywood, California on a plane
He said he had rich and famous friends, yeah he liked droppin' names
I said, "Well, howdy do, that's good for you, I dig a lot of those actors
But son you ain't got a thing on me, see I got friends with tractors"

They'll grow your groceries, haul a load
Pull you out and fix the road
They're good at slowin' speeders down
When they pass through from out of town

I'll live out in the country happily ever after
I got everything I need 'cause I got friends with tractors

On Friday night we hit the woods, go boggin' in our trucks
It's just about a guarantee some good ole boy gets stuck
Where I come from, you can bet your butt a mud hole ain't a factor
I'll sink mine to the floorboards' cause I got friends with tractors

And they'll grow your groceries, haul a load
Pull you out and fix the road
They're good at slowing speeders down
When they pass through from out of town

I'll live out in the country happily ever after
I got everything I need 'cause I got friends with tractors
Yee haw

I've been to fancy five star restaurants and I left there barely filled
They charged me for the water, the butter and the bread
That gourmet meal looked more to me like fish bait on a cracker
But I'll stay fat and happy 'cause I got friends with tractors

And they'll grow your groceries, haul a load
Pull you out and fix the road
They're good at slowin' speeders down
When they pass through from out of town

I'll live out in the country happily ever after
I got everything I need 'cause I got friends with tractors
Yeah, I got everything I need 'cause I got friends with tractors
Yee haw

Yeah man, talking about Internationals
John Deeres, Massey Fergusons
Whatever you got, we don't discriminate
Front end loaders, bush hogs, post hole diggers
Need 'em, gotta have 'em

I believe I do know one actor
Is Larry the cable guy an actor?
Oh well, he's got a tractor

    The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [beep] A single lap should be completed each time you hear this sound. [ding] Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start.

  70. Buddy William KKurtiss LOGDEN ogden jr

    I would rather be out in the wood's mudding than watching some old movie in a theater with a girl who doesn't care a thing about you and a tractor will pull you out of Anything when you need it. A tractor will pull you out of the mud, clear land, push down tree's and run forever, that's what tractor's do, whatever you need them to !

    Buddy William KKurtiss LOGDEN ogden jr

    And that shit is dead True and still have " USE'S"= uh-huh !

  73. Kristin Ryans

    can some of you guys explain whats the meaning of the song? Cus i asked a few people n thay said they don't know , let's me know n i'll tell u what i think :) 


    The song is pretty self explanatory darlin.

    Kristin Ryans

    well i guess it says that friendship and family is more important than fame , and that farm life is better than life of the rich people.... at least that's how I understand it :) anyway it's a great song! 

    sam holden

    @Kristin Ryans I understand this song because I can relate to it. countless times I have found myself in the ditch in the winter, and the only way to get it out is a tractor. if your truck is stuck in anyway you can get it out with a tractor. if you randomly got a drop of 3 feet of snow and you were just about to go shovel it then your buddy comes along with his tractor and does it for you with one push of his plow! I don't need much, because I got friends with tractors.

    Kristin Ryans

    @sam holden :) nice

    Matt G

    Anyone who uses tractors spends a Lot of time on them and enjoys all of their abilities. We have a 1969 Minneapolis Moline on my family farm. Nothing fancy but I love that thing, learned to drive on it when I was 6 and hit a fence post right away.. but that's besides the point.

    But there's one thing that International Harvester made that John Deere can't compete with: Road Tractors. IH trucks are the best on the road, right there with Mack, Peterbilt and GMC. So in conclusion, IH is probably gonna be my pick out of the two.

  89. Peachezz131

    Well since everybody else is sharing their opinions, I'll share mine. I like both John Deere and International Harvester. Here's why: 1940's an 50's John Deere's were absolutely awesome. You just can't beat the old 2 cylinders. They are unstoppable. But the 70's and 80's IH's are the stuff. They are reliable, powerful and just good tractors all around. You can't beat a 1066 with the DT466 motor. There is only one 70's John Deere that beats IH and that's the Kinze Edition 5020 with the 8V71N.
