New Style of Old School

When I was old enough to drink
Is where my story begins
I went out most every weekend
With all my rowdy Friends
Outlaw Country Music
Will never die
Taught myself how to hunt and fish
Listening to Country Boy Can Survive
But now days this styles a Dinosaur Mmmmm
And they say it ain’t coming back no more
So I say take a little this, and a little of that
If you don’t know where your going
Just take a step back
And look at what all the people before went through
Playing in smoke fill bars
A different bed every night
Puttin’ their heart in every song till the mornin’ light
Just to hear, “You ain’t never gonna make it fool!”
Ohhhhh, This is just a new style of old school.
Cut my teeth on Cash and Waylon
Thought it would always be that way
Folsom Prison and Luckenbach Texas
Said all there was to say
Throw in a little Hank
Don’t forget about C.D.B
Cause today’s country music Lord
Don’t cut it for me
And I can’t forget the words David Allen Coe said
It’s about Momma, Trains, Trucks, Prison
And getting drunk is stuck in my head
Todays country music just don’t feel right
Funny how things seem to change, just over night
This is a new style of old school (x2)

bravo… I miss real country music, not this watered down Pop they are selling these days.. Reminds me of Travis Tritt a little… I like it…

Amen! I am the most critical person about music, (especially my own)…..but I wont pick this one apart at all. You are right about the modern day music. I say there is no soul. That’s whats missing and it seems like its all dying. Let me tell you, your not exactly following the old school, your simply laying out the path for others to follow. Keep it up,and keep the faith.

Cool song. I dig the message and the groove. The only thing that stuck out in my mind when I heard it was the phrasing you use for the hook. “New style of old school”. You put the emphasis on the “old”… Which is fine, really. I was just expecting a more even phrase with the emphasis on school. Where the words all have about the same amount of time… Its really hard to explain phrasing in words, so I hope you get what I’m saying… but, this is a good song. Liked it!
