Kill Me Dead

by Matthew Welde

i like to hear the country music on the station

and I’m most satisfied out on the range

i know time spent worrying is time that’s wasted

and i think city folks been acting kind of strange

 

so i’ll go dance the night away

after working through the day

if i could i wouldn’t have it any other way

so pull your shoulders back and say

it’s good to be alive today

let me run wild and free or kill me dead

 

kill me dead before you turn me into something i am not

and kill me dead before you tell me that i envy what you’ve got

oh unless you want to see this face turn red

let me run wild and free or kill me dead

 

i like my sundays at the house just living easy

and i’m most satisfied beside family and friends

i know that girl from my past was right to leave me

and i think my true love’s in that bar around the bend

so i’ll go dance the night away

after working through the day

if i could i wouldn’t have it any other way

so pull your shoulders back and say

it’s good to be alive today

let me run wild and free or kill me dead
