[Intro]
G    Em
G    Em
 
 
[Verse]
         G
See the silhouette underneath the streetlight glow
 Em
Leaned against a Caddie on a riverside road
  G
Alone and lurkin'
  Em7
A walk and purpose
 
 G
Even though I'm lonely and the crickets keep me chirpin'
   Em7
A lightnin' bug sits with me on my shoulder
   C
Remindin' me of how I'll shine when I'm older
 
D
 But for now
 
 
[Chorus]
       G
I'm a floor full of ashes in a '90 model car
   Em7
A couple missin' teeth from chewin' 'bacco too long
 G
Fire with gas, my attitude's no act
            Em
And trouble was my middle name, it would fit my ass
 
      G                                              Em7
In a world where the music scene is planned and paid for
 
     C                                D
I'm covered up, but not on the cover song
 
                       G
I'm the other country boy
 
       Em7         G
Hmm mm mm mm mm mm mm
       Em7         G
Hmm mm mm mm mm mm mm
 
 
[Verse]
     G
I'm picture-perfect, I never learned it
Em7
What does that mean? Who's the judge and verdict?
G
No one, they just think they are
 
Em7
My life's sweet, give me a Mason jar
       G
A few wooden planks some wouldn't call a porch
 Em
Livin' out anthems to be the torch
         C                                        D
For the imperfect girls and the boys like I once was
 
   C                                         D
Imperfect is perfect if you ask someone like us
 
 
[Chorus]
       G
I'm a floor full of ashes in a '90 model car
   Em7
A couple missin' teeth from chewin' 'bacco too long
 G
Fire with gas, my attitude's no act
            Em
And trouble was my middle name, it would fit my ass
 
      G                                              Em7
In a world where the music scene is planned and paid for
 
     C                                D
I'm covered up, and not on the cover song
 
                    G
I'm the other countyyy boy
 
       Em7                    G
Hmm mm mm mm the other countryyy boy
       Em7         G
Hmm mm mm mm mm mm mm
 
 
[Verse]
           G
I've gone head-to-head with the biggest names
     Em7
Got golds and platinums on my wall in frames
      G
Talk raw to the stars they ain't shootin' a thang
   Em7
No EQ to give me a 'round-here twang
      G
Came natural, music city is my real birthplace
          Em7
Tell the tourists if they're wildin' better pump them brakes
 
           C                                                D
Or you're gonna see a man that ain't playin' standin' in a bar
 
      C                              D
He's one of us and not some country star
 
 
[Chorus]
        G
He's a floor full of ashes in a '90 model car
   Em7
A couple missin' teeth from chewin' 'bacco too long
 G
Fire with the gas, attitude no act
        Em
Trouble was his middle name, it would fit his ass
 
      C                                              Em7
In a world where the music scene is planned and paid for
 
      C                                   D
He's covered by us, but not on the cover song
                        G
He's the other country boy
 
       Em                    G        Em
Hmm mm mm mm I'm other countryyy booooooy
                                  G
Hmm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

But for now

I'm a floor full of ashes in a '90 model car
A couple missin' teeth from chewin' 'bacco too long
Fire with gas, my attitude's no act
The trouble was my middle name, it would fit my ass
In a world where the music scene is planned and paid for
I'm covered up, but not on a cover song
I'm the other country boy

Picture-perfect, I never learned it
What does that mean? Who's the judge and verdict?
No one, they just think they are
My life's sweet, give me a Mason jar
A few wooden planks some wouldn't call a porch

Imperfect is perfect if you ask someone like us

I'm the other country boy
The other country boy

I've gone head-to-head with the biggest names
Got golds and platinums on my wall in frames
Talk raw to the stars, they ain't shootin' a thing
No EQ to give me a 'round-here twang
