White Trash

Eric Evans


Well, I was born in a white trash town
There wasn't allot of money to go around
So you learned to make do with the things you had
There was allot of people up to no good
Living in my neighborhood
So fighting just became a way of life
I can't tell you how many times

I've been threatened with a knife
I'd have to grab my big wheel and run for my life
Things like this happened almost everyday
Through it all, I stood tall
You know I wouldn't listen to ya'all
Trying to pin me down in a white trash life
They called me white trash
Well, hey look at me know and you can see
They called me white trash
But, I can be anything I wanna be

Well, I remember a time when I was 7 or 8
It was dark and I knew it was late
I woke up to my dad crying at the side of my bed
He smelt of liquor, something wasn't right
What'd he do, he was quite a sight
He told me then that he wasn't the best dad
First that made me really sad
Then I got really mad
I knew then he had done my momma wrong
As I look back on that night
I'm glad I know my wrong from right
I decided then I would never be like him

They called me white trash
Well, hey look at me know and you can see
They called me white trash
But, I can be anything I wanna be
By the time I was 20, I had no money
I was cold and had nobody
I was homeless living out on the streets
Now around this time I met my wife
I'll tell you what, she saved my life

She gave me a reason to strive for a better life
I'd find a crash pad, get a job
Get a car, then lose it all
This is a pattern that repeated for many years
I worked real hard, put myself through school
Tried to be a corporate fool
But now my backs shot and I can't work no more
They called me white trash
Well, hey look at me know and you can see
They called me white trash
But, I can be anything I wanna be
