Record man came and sat me down
He said, I got some songs for you
There's one about a dirt road
I really think you oughta do
So I gave it a listen
And it wasn't all that bad
But it ain't me, so I shook my head
And that's all there is to that

I don't have hits
I've got standards
Tell me how can I sell out
If I barely sell at all?
You won't see my name on the billboard
Every night I pack the dance floor
There's your answer
I don't have hits, I've got standards

He just smiled, he rolled his eyes
And said, how can I make you see?
We just need one big hit
The rest would be history
If we could find a way to compromise
You could be the next big star
But I said, man, you might be right
But I don't care if you are

I don't have hits
I've got standards
Tell me how can I sell out
If I barely sell at all?
You won't see my name on the billboard
Every night I pack the dance floor
There's your answer
I don't have hits, I've got standards

Well don't get me wrong, I wanna hear my songs on country radio
But it's gotta feel right, standing here, singing them at the show

I don't have hits
I've got standards
Tell me how can I sell out
If I barely sell at all?
You won't see my name on the billboard
Every night I pack the dance floor
There's your answer
I don't have hits, I've got standards
Well, there's your answer
I don't have hits, I've got standards
