lyrics

Jerry was a metal head, now he’s settled down
Bought himself a house and a car in a small town
Married the first girl he met, had a couple of kids
Still works at a security job, but now it’s for nothing

Jerry told me once he would never give up the sound
Would always listen to metal, wear his mullet proud
Jerry always said he would never settle down
As he drunk down his 30 pack and passed out on the ground

He was a metal head
And now he’s not
Jerry was a metal head
But now Jerry’s lost

Jerry’s wife told him he had to settle down
Stop listening to metal, get a job in town
Jerry sold his truck, cut his mullet off
Now he listens to Diamond Rio instead of Testament

Now Jerry goes to work every fucking day
To support 2 kids instead of buying CDs
Everyone says Jerry finally grew up
But Jerry says he feels like he is lost

He was a metal head
And now he’s not
Jerry was a metal head
But now Jerry’s lost

Last time I saw Jerry he looked broken and beat
Got drunk on 2 beer while talking about his kids teeth
Jerry just needs big guitars and 2 bass drums
There’s not enough energy in the music of Alabama

Jerry just sat there and looked at his feet
Jerry said he wished he had never given in
Everybody says Jerry’s living good
But Jerry lost it all for the American Dream

He was a metal head
And now he’s not
Jerry was a metal head
But now Jerry’s lost
