Verse 1:

When she met me I was wearin’ suits
coats, belts, shirts and silk ties
I dressed up to sell daily at my job
but it was a sudden surprise
After we got married, fancy got old
Keepin’ up with Joneses ain’t my style
I like my Dive Bar tees ‘n jeans
but that don’t make her smile

Chorus:

Cause I looked like all the boys
Oh, I’m like all those boys
All those rough ‘n rowdy boys
All those wild n’ crazy boys
The boys from her hometown

Verse 2:

When I asked her what was wrong
She said she missed the cleaner me
The one who’d buy nicer threads
Than guys who hang out at Denny’s
I said this is who I sincerely am
I’m no dandy, Ivy League or ritzy man
I’m an Aggie Blue Collar Country kid
Just doin’ the best I damned well can

Chorus:

But I look like all the boys
Oh, I act like all those boys
All those rough ‘n rowdy boys
All those wild n’ crazy boys
The boys from her hometown

Bridge:

Oh, she tried to avoid who they were
I think she just didn’t wanna get hurt
She’d likes me with a shaven face
Than one covered with scruff ‘n dirt
And I can’t help if I’m different than
My fancy brother with his luxury car
She’ll have to face the facts now
I love old cars and have a big heart

Verse 3:

She’s been disappointed and afraid
This is not the life she had in mind
She wishes we could go back to
When I was dressed up to the nines
Guess I’m not what she expected
But it should’ve been clear as day
I was much happier driving her around
In my cherry putt-putt Chevrolet

Chorus:

And looking like all the boys
Oh, I act like all those boys
All those rough ‘n rowdy boys
All those wild n’ crazy boys
The boys from my hometown

Who are all exactly like all
The boys from her hometown
