“Folks Like Us“ lyrics P1of 2:

We're scattered out
On rural routes everywhere
From California to the Carolines
Flag wavin', Jesus prayin'
Mama lovin', don't care
Redneck, white shirt, blue jean kind
Folks like us like to live a little
Honest, simple, outside, small town, America
Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
This ole' world ain't got enough
Boot wearin', God fearin'
Folks like us
With Folgers in a Thermos
At the door with a brown bag
Steel toes on the go
With the risin' sun
Even when the wind
Ain't at our backs
We don't quit, won't quit
'Till the job gets done

“Folks Like Us“ lyrics P2 of 2:

Folks like us like to live a little
Honest, simple, outside, small town, America
Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
This ole' world ain't got enough
Boot wearin', God fearin'
Folks like us
We hang out, just a little too much
Hey, the way it is now, ain't the way it was
A whole lot of real and a little less fake
Yeah, I guess that makes
Folks like us
Yeah, folks like us
Folks like us like to live a little
Honest, simple, outside, small town, America
Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
This ole' world ain't got enough
Boot wearin', God fearin'
Folks like us
No there just ain't enough
Folks like us

This was the duo’s final studio album before Gentry's death 2 years later in a helicopter crash in Medford, New Jersey, He was 50. As the titles suggested, songs about the down trotted in rural towns, struggling to make a living and keeping faith in love of family.
