Up and down the roads we'd go
Tearing up the ground we'd sown
With corn and beans and greens and oat
Yeah, man it was hard
And I learned I could beg no more
When we'd drive by that country store
When Grandpa would say "What you need it for?
Ain't got nothing we ain't got"
You couldn't tell that old man nothing
He was backwards to the bone
He said let me tell you something boy
If there's something I want

I'll grow my own,
Yeah all I need is G-O-D
To bless the seeds
I've sown and pray for a little rain
Yeah, my daddy was the same
He showed me as a kid
How to live and let live
If you think you know what's good for me
You don't, I'll grow my own

As long as schools keep washing brains
On how to ride that gravy train
And teaching kids that there just ain't no God up in the sky
As long as they say guns are bad
And you don't need no mom and dad
And sex is just some fun you have
And love is all a lie
I pray for all those kids you raise
On my hardworking dime
But unless you change your crazy ways
You ain't raising mine

I'll grow my own,
Yeah all I need is G-O-D
To bless the seeds
I've sown and pray for a little rain
Yeah, my daddy was the same
He showed me as a kid
How to live and let live
If you think you know what's good for me
Well you don't, man I'll grow my own
(Yes, I will)

Your lips are moving, hell I can see them
Mr Politician I just don't believe 'em
You want my money, you want my freedom
You want my rights but I'ma fight like hell to keep 'em
You want my sweat, you want my blood
You want my daughters and my sons

But I'll grow my own,
Yeah all I need is G-O-D
To bless the seeds
I've sown and pray for a little rain
Yeah, my daddy was the same
He showed me as a kid
How to live and let live
If you think you know what's good for us you don't,
Yeah the best thing you can do is leave us alone
I'll grow my own
Yeah, I'll grow my own
