Yelawolf – Ride Or Die Lyrics

SHARE
[Verse 1] We was thick as thieves growing up
Both of us raising hell
Chasing liquor with liquor
Racing and chasing tail
You got caught with a nickel bag and then went to jail
You sat it out for a week because your mama didn’t have bail
I rode my bike to your house as soon as you got out
Remember laughing at the cops and then I took you straight to the spot
I moved away for some years to Atlanta, Georgia but stayed the same
My troublesome attitude got me locked in an ugly chain
We kept in touch every week and I noticed the change
You wanted to clean up and go to school some day do the family thing
And I was too wild to get it, admittedly so
But I supported your move no matter which way that you rolled
I guess you made a good choice, graduated with honors
Got a good job at the factory making that legal dollar
And as for me I got worse
I found myself in a curse
Dropped out of school for a dream
A dream I didn’t rehearse
You hit me up cuz you knew when you saw me I was bad off
But I was too proud to ask for the help cuz I knew the cost
But you offered a place to stay
Until I could find my way
You helped me go find a gig
Clean up and get it straight
Never once did you tell me to stop rapping and give it up
As we sat talking on the bed of your lifted truck
You had it all and I had nothing
I’m just saying that meant something brother

[Chorus] If you ever need me around I’ll be on the next train headed southbound
I’ll never let you down, I can’t let you down
Because when I couldn’t get my feet on the ground
You’d do anything to help me out
You never let me down
What goes around comes around
I’m just sitting here on my front porch singing
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
I’m just sitting here on my front porch singing
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die

[Verse 2] It’s been a while since I seen my friends, family and such
Six months a year on the road, I never get to visit that much
Even though it took me ten years to break a crack in this rock
Now that I started this movement, I got no plans to stop
Now you may see me in publications and radio placements
A new truck, a new Harley, and think I forgot how I made it
But ain’t a day that goes by that I don’t recall the struggle
Scared to death to go back to it, I constantly hustle
I thank you for my ambition
For the strength to condition
Anyone who helped me along the way and believed in my vision
It takes a village to raise a child
For me it took small towns
Everything that I learned from it
The ups and the downs
My Uncle Buddy, he gave me a thousand dollars to make a tape
Back in ’02, when I could barely afford a plate
And he couldn’t afford it either, but he did it anyhow
And how he wears a thousand dollar smile, Uncle Bud

[Chorus] If you ever need me around I’ll be on the next train headed southbound
I’ll never let you down, I can’t let you down
Because when I couldn’t get my feet on the ground
You’d do anything to help me out
You never let me down
What goes around comes around
I’m just sitting here on my front porch singing
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
I’m just sitting here on my front porch singing
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
I’m just sitting here on my front porch singing
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
I’m just sitting here on my front porch singing
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
This one’s for my ride or die
