lyrics

HALF HORSE TOWN
Nikki Shaw / Radney Foster / Darden Smith

I joined the army from a Half Horse Town
Just cause I’m a girl don’t mean you’ll keep me down
I made a promise now I’m duty bound
Cause I’m that girl from a half horse town

Oh freedom
Don’t you know it ain’t free
If somebody’s gonna kick ass and take names
It might as well be me
No you can push around
This girl from a Half Horse Town

I signed my name and now my honor’s at stake
I believe in promises that you don’t break
When hell’s breaking loose and the walls are coming down
Stand behind the girl from the Half Horse Town
You can count on a girl from a Half Horse Town

My Mama’s worried
But my Daddy’s he’s so proud
I might be a girl, but boy I’m standing out in the crowd
My folks raised me not to back down
Always be that girl from the Half Horse Town

Oh freedom
Don’t you know it ain’t free
If somebody’s gonna kick ass and take names
It might as well be me
No, you can’t push around
You can’t ever keep down
This girl from a Half Horse Town
