LECRAE - Welcome to H-Town ft Tedashii & Dre Murray

rate me

Welcome to H-Town, yeah; welcome to H-Town, whoa;

Said ‘em boys ridin’ clean…but without the King, what does it really mean?

Cup full of lean, got a Sweet full of green, wake up, boy, this ain’t a dream!

Welcome to H-Town, yeah; welcome to H-Town, whoa;

I’m prayin’ for H-Town, yeah, yeah; welcome to H-Town, whoa, yeah.

Verse 1: (Dre Murray)

Roamin’ round the earth, thinkin’ bout my city, yeah, the place of my birth

Every time I hear that name, I feel this pain in my shirt

Right next to my heart, like a flame, and it hurts!

Ignored it at first, but now I think it’s something I must address

The right spot to get this thing off a my chest,

The caged bird won’t be able to sing until it rest;

You just gimme a chance to explain, I do my best;

Explain to you why I left—He orders my steps;

To expound any further would be a waste of breath.

This story’s a little bit more than it seems; it has some depth

It’s like I haven’t waken up from a dream, quiet as kept

Nevertheless, baby, I love H-Town; pray for my city when my knees hit the ground;

I pray you find a Savior like I did, H-Town, ‘cuz when He come through,

[chopped and screwed effect] man, it’s goin’ down.

Verse 2: (Lecrae)

I was born in H-town, starched down, way back,

When them slabs in the city, beat that Screw off in the back

Pokin’ out, keep them spinners, eatin’ Frenchy’s chicken dinner

Family came from 3rd ward, Scott Street on up to Ennis,

Hangin’ out in Sunnyside, with my cousin Corey,

They was on that purple Sprite, I was still sippin’ 40s,

Keke’s “Still Pimpin’” stories as I’m passing by Yates, stop and wonderin’ if I’ll land at heaven’s gates,

I told my cousin D at TSU while smokin’ trees,

“I think the Lord is calling me”; both of us agree.

And man, I love the city of my birth, that’s why I plead

That God would change the “H” same way he’s changing me.

(sung, from 1st version of song):

‘Cause All I cared about was ridin’ clean, a pocket full of green,

And find a bad yella I can put up on my team,

My bros ridin’ dirty, you know your soul ain’t clean—

Go on, let the Lord intervene.

(sung refrain, from 1st version of song, Von Won w/Shei Atkins):

Welcome to H-Town, yeah [Lecrae speaks over the singing, “What up H-town? I still love you, baby”];

Welcome to H-Town, whoa, yeah;

They say them boys ridin’ clean, fresh up on the scene, but without the King, what does it really mean?

Cup full a lean, Sweet full of green, wake up, boy, this ain’t a dream!

Welcome to H-Town, yeah ; welcome to H-Town, whoa, yeah;

I’m prayin’ for H-Town, yeah, yeah; welcome to H-Town, whoa, yeah

Verse 3 (Dre Murray)

I had a dream on the plane that I was sitting in the slab

Seat back, bass up, chuckin’ deuce and giving dab

Talkin’ to my partners ‘bout these plans that I have,

When I told ‘em Oklahoma, man, dem boys just laughed, like,

“Where dat at, folk? Man, stop the joking! Yeah, you hoop , but you ain’t that dope!,”

It’s like they couldn’t understand me having that hope,

Tryin to serve God, they want me serving fiends with that dope,

A job where we flat broke. Pass the kill

And as I got higher, death is what I started to feel—“Dawg, we smokin’ kill!”

Hah. I backed away from The Killer, and as He picked up my life, and my vision got clearer

Destiny is screaming; it’s faint, but I hear her;

Things are bad right now, but the man in the mirror

Is tryin’ to make a change, rearrange some things. H-town, I still love ya, hold up mayne

(sung refrain, from 1st version of song; Shei Atkins only)

Welcome to H-Town (4x)

(sung refrain, from 1st version of song; Von Won only)

Welcome to H-Town, yeah; welcome to H-Town, whoa; yeah

Said ‘em boys ridin’ clean…but without the King, what does it really mean?

Got a cup full a lean, Sweet full of green, wake up, boy, this ain’t a dream!

Welcome to H-Town, yeah; welcome to H-Town, whoa; yeah

I’m prayin’ for H-Town, yeah, yeah; welcome to H-Town, whoa, yeah
