A Little Liberty


About this song

I spent a good number of my growing up years in Liberty, TX which I consider my home town. I wrote this about growing up there and how it will always be a part of me.


The Lyrics

Headed east on Highway 90 out of Houston you will find
A little Texas town called Liberty
Well for most they keep on driving nothing special in their mind
But for me it’s full of childhood memories
In the 60′s life was different, didn’t know just what we had
With no Walmart, Taco Bell or Mickey D’s
Mostly little stores run by people we called Mom and Dad
Working hard to give us everything we need

But when I got a little older, I couldn’t wait to get away
But you know it kinda made me into what I am today

Now my fancy car is a pickup truck
I don’t get my coffee from Starbucks
I work all day in the corporate scene
You’ll find me there in denim jeans
I guess there’ll always be a little Liberty in me

Well my friends and I, we rode our bikes all round that little town
In ten minutes you could get most anywhere
From the time that final school bell rang until the sun went down
You would find us livin’ life without a care

But now I live in the big city, tall buildings all around
And I wonder how much I have changed since I left my home town

Well my fancy car is a pickup truck
I don’t get my coffee from Starbucks
I work all day in the corporate scene
You’ll find me there in denim jeans
I guess there’ll always be a little Liberty in me

So if you ever ask me where I’m from, there’s no doubt for me
Though it’s been years since I’ve been there, I’m from Liberty

Well my fancy car is a pickup truck
I don’t get my coffee from Starbucks
I work all day in the corporate scene
You’ll find me there in denim jeans
I guess there’ll always be a little Liberty in me
I guess there’ll always be a little Liberty in me
Thank God there’ll always be a little Liberty in me
