I ain’t writing for radio play
And I don’t give a damn what they say
If four minutes is too long
Then I don’t belong
I ain’t writing for radio play

I’d much rather hear a true country tune
One about love or leaving too soon
Songs about life and the way we all live
Yeah that’s just what true country is

These days ain’t it funny how every hit song
Is sang by a ten who can’t do no wrong
The only time they’ve seen any time behind bars
Is when they forget to turn the auto tune on

I ain’t writing for radio play
And I don’t give a damn what they say
If four minutes is too long
Then I don’t belong
I ain’t writing for radio play

This new generation don’t know when to stop
They transformed what I loved into hick hop
Then turned around claiming to learn from the greats
While making the same ones roll in their graves

I’m guessing they’re not sure what a honky tonk is
They’ll pass on a bottle for a drink full of fizz
Why did I have to give up on all that I loved
When they’ll spend less time at one than Jones spent in hand cuffs

I ain’t writing for radio play
And I don’t give a damn what they say
If four minutes is too long
Then I don’t belong
I ain’t writing for radio play

I’ll bet you a million Hank never did it this way
In a back room on his knees what he did was pray
Giving thanks that he lived through another long night of beers
Now I’ve drawn the line and end it right here

I ain’t writing for radio play
And you won’t hear my songs from a stage
I’ll never be rich cause I write what I live
I ain’t writing for radio play

And I don’t give a damn what they say...
