Lyrics

Gretchen Wilson

I was raised in Pocahontas Illinois
Everybody thought of me as one of the boys
Because I'd run with the crowd that was tough
At 15 I was tendin' Big O's Bar
Singing till two a.m. for a half full tip jar
Spent my youth singing truth payin' dues

[Chorus:]
I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown,
And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let 'em down
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground
You know I'm gonna make Pocahontas proud

I knocked on every door on music row
They looked down at me and said girl go back home you ain't got what we need in this town
They couldn't whup the fightin' side of me
You know where I come from we don't give up easily
Over night it took all my life to be found

[Chorus]

Pocahontas proud

At 27 I had baby Grace
I was born again when I saw her sweet face
And I knew she was the greatest thing I'd ever do

I'm the biggest thing that ever came from my hometown,
And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let 'em down
If it's the last thing I do before they lay me in the ground

[Chorus]

I was raised in Pocahontas Illinois

Pocahontas proud, you know I'm gonna make Pocahontas proud, Pocahontas proud,
