Eric Church is pulling no punches in the lyrics of his new single, “Stick That In Your Country Song.” The country star has never shied away from pushing boundaries in his music.

As we announced earlier this week, Church had teased out the song to his fans, saying “It’s gonna be the tip of the spear for what’s coming after, and it’s a big spear. I believe it’s the best we’ve ever been in our career.”

Church noted that the lyrics for “Stick That In Your Country Song” were written and it was actually recorded before much of what’s going on in the world started happening.

“I’ve never had a song in my career that was a harbinger of things to come. When we recorded ‘Stick That in Your Country Song,’ we had a booming economy and a pretty great world going on. And I remember thinking when I did it, ‘Wow, I’m not sure this, I’m not sure how relevant this is for right now. I love the song. I love the sentiment, but I’m just not sure.’ And within about 30 days, the world changed, and it changed for a while, and this song just became more and more real and more and more relevant.”

“Stick That In Your Country Song” Lyrics – Eric Church

Take me on up to Detroit City.
Jails are full, the factories empty.
Mama’s crying, young boys dying.
Under that red white and blue still flying

Drop me off in Baltimore.
Where every other window’s got a plywood board.
Where dreams become drugs and guns.
The only way out is to shoot or run

Stick that in your country song.
Take that one to number one.
Get the whole world singing along.
Stick that in your country song

Sing about the man coming back from war.
23 going on 54.
He lost a friend, his sight, his hands.
Baby girl he’ll never see again

Stick that in your country song.
Take that one to number one.
Get the whole world singing along.
Stick that in your country song

Light the arrow, pull the bow.
Shoot that fire right through my soul.
Hit my pride. Fist up high.
I wanna feel the rush, I wanna feel alive.
Come on I want to pound the dash.
Stomp the gas, drive too fast.
Rock me hard, stop my heart.
And blow the speakers right out of this car

Stick that in your country song.
Take that one to number one.
Get the whole world singing along.
Stick that in your country song

Gimme one about the teacher
who’s trying to change a life or two.
She’ll be rocking out all night with you.
Tomorrow she’ll be back in a red brick school.
Where kids are climbing off the walls
and it’s scary walking down the hall.
She’s underpaid, she’s overworked.
Come on man shout one out to her

Stick that in your country song.
Take that one to number one.
Get the whole world singing along.
Stick that in your country song.
