ERIC CHURCH

You were too bad for a little square town,

With your hip-hop hat and your pants on the ground,
Heard you cussed out mama, pushed daddy around
Before you tore off in his car

Here you are running these dirty old streets
Tattoo on your neck, fake gold on your teeth
Got the hood here snowed, but you can't fool me
We both know who you are

Homeboy, you're gonna wish one day,
That you were sittin' on a gate of a truck by the lake
With your high school flame on one side, ice cold beer on the other
Ain't no shame in a blue collar forty,
Little house, little kid, little small town story
If you don't ever do anything else for me,
Just do this for me brother,
Come on home, boy.

I was haulin' this hay to Uncle Joe's farm,
Thought of us barefoot kids in the yard,
Man, it seems we were just catchin' snakes in the barn
Now you're caught up in this mess
I could use a little help unloading these bales
I could keep you pretty busy with a hammer and nails
Ain't a glamorous life but it will keep you outta jail,
Not worry us all to death

Homeboy, you're gonna wish one day,
That you were sittin' on a gate of a truck by the lake
With your high school flame on one side, ice cold beer on the other
Ain't no shame in a blue collar forty,
Little house, little kid, little small town story
If you don't ever do anything else for me, just do this for me brother,
Come on home, boy,
Come on home, boy

You can't hold back the hands of time,
Mama's goin' grey, and so is daddy's mind
I wish you'd come on back and make it all right
Before they're called home, boy

Homeboy
Come on home, boy
Homeboy
Come on home, boy.

  • 2. I think that Eric church is just trying to say that no matter what there will always be “ home boys” and that they will one day realize that they are messing up there life with all the stuff they are doing. Casey Beathard, who came up with the song’s idea after hearing his son, says, “ come one homeboy” to a friend. In “ homeboy” the narrator addresses a delinquent brother who has been taken to a destructive urban lifestyle.
  • This song has a strong meaning and I personally think that the meaning is a good one just because what Eric is saying is you don’t want to mess up your life with something not worth it. The meaning behind the song is pretty strong and can possibly relate to some people.
  • 3. I personally think that the artist isn’t trying to get anyone’s attitude to try to change when they listen to the song. I think that he is just trying to get everyone’s attention to think about the generation and how much it has changed.
  • 4. The people that would find this appealing would be teenagers and adults just because of what kind of music it is and what the song is about.
  • 5. I think that what the artist is saying is pretty straightforward and if your old enough to understand what he is saying then you would know what I’m talking about.
