Buy Dirt — This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song is “Buy Dirt” performed by Jordon Davis and Luke Bryan. This 2021 release is a great reminder that life is short and our focus should always be on the simple things that make life worth living. Davis and Bryan play off each other well and the beat pulls you into the song.

Before you get caught on that ladder

Let me tell you what it’s all about

Find you a few things that matter

That you can put a fence around

And then he laid it out

Buy dirt

Find the one you can’t live without

Get a ring, let your knee hit the ground

Do what you love but call it work

And throw a little money in the plate at church

Send your prayers up and your roots down deep

And add a few limbs to your family tree

And watch their pencil marks

And the grass in the yard all grow up

‘Cause the truth about it is

It all goes by real quick

You can’t buy happiness

But you can buy dirt

Songwriters: Matt Jenkins / Jordan Davis / Joshua Cole Jenkins / Jacob J. Davis

I picked two versions to share. Both are solid performances by this duo. The first is the official music video and the second is an acoustic version which really demonstrates Jordon’s range and talent.

Hope you enjoy “Buy Dirt”!
