Where a Country Boy Belongs
The Marshall Tucker Band Lyrics


I just threw my bottle at the jukebox
Got tired of hearing them same old songs
Gotta get myself back to Tennessee
Lord, where a country boy belongs

I kinda like those city women
When they walk by, Lord, and the way they smell
Gotta get myself back to Tennessee
Where the women and the wildcats, they both raise hell
Now let me tell you something city slicker
I didn't know this coochie was your wife
Put that gun back where it belongs
And I get myself on home
I'm gonna get on my hat, get back to Tennessee
Lord, where a country boy belongs

(instrumental break)

Now let me tell you something city slicker
I didn't know this coochie was your wife
Put that gun back where it belongs
And I get myself on home
I'm gonna get on my hat, get back to Tennessee
Lord, where a country boy belongs

Think it's a shame that the Marshall Tucker Band isn't in the RRHOF? Screw the RRHOF! I know of something better.

I am the representative/cyber cheerleader for the Marshall Tucker Band at the Hall Of Pretty Darned Good (HOPDG).

What is HOPDG?

The Hall Of Pretty Darned Good is a virtual Hall of Recognition. The HOPDG seeks to recognize people, bands and artists who are not recognized by their respective Halls of Fame.

Nominees are selected based on fan suggestions and inducted into the HOPDG by fan votes. It's as simple as that.

The current categories include:
Baseball
Football
Basketball
Hockey
Film/TV
Music

There is a Facebook Page named The Hall Of Pretty Darned Good where you can vote for the Marshall Tucker Band to be inducted into the Hall Of Pretty Darned Good!

To vote, first you need to "LIKE" the HOPDG page, then send a message via the Page, with your vote choices.

The Hall Of Pretty Darned Good also has a Group of the same name on Facebook so you can discuss the nominees with other voters, keep up to date on HOPDG news, and maybe win some extra votes for your favorites by answering trivia questions. It's all good fun with a great purpose - recognizing people for their outstanding contributions to sports, film and music.

Let's get the Marshall Tucker Band the long overdue recognition they deserve.

Thank you 🌈

one of the most overlooked/underated Bands ever....Great blend of Country....Rock...and blues...RIP Toy Caldwell

Michael J. Cronin

Born in NYC grew up on Long (Strong) Island, the southern invasion of the early 70's was the best time for music, those bands didn't play here all the time for nothing! Why Tucker is not in the R&R hall of Fame is a damn shame!

Richard Peterson

Johney "V" Vernazza is also playing on this cut.. That little slide guitar bit at the end, in harmony with Elvin Bishop.

julius nickerson

This the sound track of my life. Summer of 74, just graduated, avoided gettin any of many pregnant and everyone I knew had everything these boys had done. the Rocky Mountains in Utah Idaho Wyoming echoed the music of Toy Caldwell i.e the Marshall Tucker Band. I will never forget.

RICK HAYLE

Absolutely one of the best show bands of the seventies!!!!! I believe this is their finest album! Saw them 3 times here in DALLAS!
