Nobody Gonna Tell Me What To Do Lyrics

x
Written by Tony Mullins, Tim Nichols and Craig Wiseman

Shoulda seen the look on the face of the boss of the second shift,
When I threw my hard hat at him,
An suggested the box where he could stick it.
I walked downstairs an told em I was leavin Bethlehem,
Like Id seen the Saviour, had tears in my eyes,
Holdin my hands up an shoutin: "Amen."

Cause there aint nobody gonna tell me what to do.
I spent most of my life a-wrapped up tight,
In somebody elses hand-me-down old shoes.
Startin today, Im someone Id be proud to know:
You might tell me where to go,
But there aint nobody gonna tell me what to do.

We buried Daddy just like week at the church to save his soul.
Man, he dreamed of pilots wings:
Spent his whole life diggin coal.
I got a guitar under my bed, but Ive been too scared to fly.
But thats enough of that stuff, Im packin up my truck:
They can just kiss my butt goodbye.

Cause there aint nobody gonna tell me what to do.
I spent most of my life a-wrapped up tight,
In somebody elses hand-me-down old shoes.
Startin today, Im someone Id be proud to know:
You might tell me where to go,
But there aint nobody gonna tell me what to do.

Instrumental Break.

Cause there aint nobody gonna tell me what to do.
(Aint nobody gonna tell me what to do.)
I spent most of my life wrapped up tight,
In somebody elses hand-me-down old shoes.
Startin today, Im someone Id be proud to know:
You might tell me where to go,
But there aint nobody gonna tell me what to do.

I walked downstairs an told em I was leavin Bethlehem.
