Corey Smith - PRIDE Lyrics

I read P R I D E on the bulletin board
First year of my sophomore year
East pack on my shoulder
Nikes on my feet
To drag and slack, I was busting in my baggy jeans
I thought "pfew, whateva" and I rolled my eyes
When struttin' down the hall to get my voice hi5
The friends I made back then are my real friends now
I still see 'em when we go hang-out in town
Down the road from the halls we came of aging, now I get it!

PRIDE was a capital letter on my baseball cap
It's what held us together around this dot on the map
Now is the color I bleed and the stitches in my shoes
And my jacket match it bright

(Verse 2)
I read P R I D E on the cheerleader sign
On the field on a Friday night
I wouldn't know the team, wouldn't know the band
Just another 12th layin' up in the stands
Flyin' off my feet when the home team scored
Laughing at the visitors, pointing at the score board
Sure I got carried away, but I didn't mean wrong
Just a fan of where I was from
The stadium lights shine bright on us all
When the news withdraw


(Verse 3)
I was a country boy but I waddn't a redneck
A solid beast student on the college prep-track
I had ambition, plans of moving on
But I graduated college then I came back home
Because the trees grow strong when the roots run deep
And this town's the only place I go sound asleep
P R I D Ease in my heart and soul
It's something I want my children to know
So I keep believing, no plans on leaving me
Even if we have a loosing season
