lyrics

When I was 18 years old
I went a-runnin’ from the cold
I had to get away from the same, from the same
From the same old, same old
I packed my bags and hit the road
But now I’m back and there’s something I got to say

I’m a Minnesota Man, that just what I am
No amount of running could take that out of me.
So after years down in the South
It only makes me extra-proud
To say I’m a Minnesota Man

I’m not a native son
We moved here when I was one
A different state is where I was born, I was born
I was born in Illinois
I was my daddy’s pride and joy
Rambling in my blood but way deep down

Indiana’s been a second home to me
And the Rocky Mountain air sure feels fine
I love Chicago and all its busy streets
But the Twin Cities are the ones that feel like mine

I’m a Minnesota Man, that just what I am
No amount of running could take that out of me.
So after years down in the South
It only makes me extra-proud
To say I’m a Minnesota Man

about

The Federales Minneapolis, Minnesota

Classic country for the modern world. We're not from the Black Hills, the Texas Panhandle, or Appalachia. We're from the Twin Cities. Damn proud of it, too, but we play country music, because it's one of America's native languages. We're pickers, fiddlers, groovers, and harmonizers. We're ready to make you sing along, get up and dance, or just sit and tap your toes. We're The Federales. ... more
