Eric Church announced new music in June telling fans, “It’s coming, and when it gets here, it’s gonna be a sonofabitch.”
He delivered that new song today “Stick That In Your Country Song.”
Take me on up to Detroit city / Jails are full, the factories empty / Mamas crying, young boys dying / Under that red, white and blue still flying / Drop me off in Baltimore / Where every other window got a plywood board / Where dreams become drugs and guns / The only way out is to shoot or run
Stick that in your country song / Take that one to number one / Get the whole world singing along / Stick that in your country song
Sing about the man coming back from war / Twenty-three going on 54 / He lost a friend, his sight, his hands / Baby girl, he’ll never see again
Light the arrow, pull the bow / Shoot that fire right through my soul / Hit my pride, fist up high / I wanna feel a rush, I wanna feel alive / C’mon, I wanna pound the dash / Stomp the gas, drive too fast / Rock me hard, stop my heart / And blow the speakers right out of this car.
Gimme one about the teacher who’s trying to change a life or two / She’ll be rocking out all night with you / Tomorrow she’ll back in a red brick school / Where the kids are climbing off the walls and it’s scary walking down the halls / She’s underpaid, she’s overworked / Come on man, shout one out to her
