Luke Combs Honors The Ones Busting Their Asses With Acoustic Performance of “Blue Collar Boys”

Luke continues to release these new acoustic versions of his previously released songs, and nobody is going to complain about that.

Quarantine hasn’t slowed this freight train of momentum down one bit.

The latest video is one of those underrated anthems for the working folks, “Blue Collar Boys,” which appears on his 2019 album What You See Is What You Get.

We’re the white paint peeling off a picket fence
The rust stains covering a Craftsman wrench
When the sun’s coming up you can bet we’re clocking in
Cash our paycheck, two day break, and do it again

We like cold keg beer and fixin’ up trucks
Old bird dogs and the woman we love
Maxwell House steamin’ out of a coffee cup
We say our prayers, send ‘em to the sky
Bust our backs, barely getting by
Carolina to California up to Illinois
Yeah, there’s guys like us
Blue collar boys

Grab a drink, put on some football, and turn it up.

Fully lyrics:

We were just river kids
Pickin’ up stones like David did
Watchin’ them longnecks break off of Freight Train Bridge
We went to church in a Detroit car
Our daddies drank draft at the local bar
With an achin’ back just like old Granddad did

And we like cold keg beer and fixin’ up trucks
Old bird dogs and the woman we love
Maxwell House steamin’ out of a coffee cup
We say our prayers, send ‘em to the sky
Bust our backs, barely getting by
Carolina to California up to Illinois
Yeah, there’s guys like us
Blue collar boys

We’re the white paint peeling off a picket fence
The rust stains covering a Craftsman wrench
When the sun’s coming up you can bet we’re clocking in
Cash our paycheck, two day break, and do it again

We like cold keg beer and fixin’ up trucks
Old bird dogs and the woman we love
Maxwell House steamin’ out of a coffee cup
We say our prayers, send ‘em to the sky
Bust our backs, barely getting by
Carolina to California up to Illinois
Yeah, there’s guys like us
Blue collar boys

We’re worn out boots and old Levi’s
The wind behind the stars and stripes

And we like cold keg beer and fixin’ up trucks
Old bird dogs and the woman we love
Maxwell House steamin’ out of a coffee cup
We say our prayers, send ‘em to the sky
Bust our backs, barely getting by
Carolina to California up to Illinois
Yeah, there’s guys like us
Yeah, there’s guys like us
Blue collar boys
