Song Review: Follow Your Arrow

I first heard this song while I was watching the Oscars and I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed this song. When I first saw Kacey Musgraves outfits I began to think of the time during Johnny Cash with the style of outfit she was wearing. I thought her outfit was cute.  I want to have the same outfit, minus the lights.

When she started singing I loved her voice style, reminded me of the singers from Johnny Cash era (I know it is not the same thing, it just reminded me of it). The more she sang the more I fell in love. Her voice was great, but it was the lyrics that won my heart.

Here are the lyrics below:

If you save yourself for marriage
You’re a bore
If you don’t save yourself for marriage
You’re a horrible person
If you won’t have a drink
Then you’re a prude
But they’ll call you a drunk
As soon as you down the first one

If you can’t lose the weight
Then you’re just fat
But if you lose too much
Then you’re on crack
You’re damned if you do
And you’re damned if you don’t
So you might as well just do
Whatever you want
So

Make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that’s something you’re into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, or don’t
Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points

If you don’t go to church
You’ll go to hell
If you’re the first one
On the front row
You’re self-righteous
Son of a-
Can’t win for losing
You’ll just disappoint ’em
Just ’cause you can’t beat ’em
Don’t mean you should join ’em

So make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that’s something you’re into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, or don’t
Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points

Say what you think
Love who you love
‘Cause you just get
So many trips ’round the sun
Yeah, you only
Only live once

So make lots of noise
Kiss lots of boys
Or kiss lots of girls
If that’s what you’re into
When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint, I would
And follow your arrow
Wherever it points, yeah
Follow your arrow
Wherever it points

After this song had finished I was in shock. I loved this song and it touched me deeply. Basically this song has been saying what I have felt for years. Do what you want and don’t let the haters stop you. My favorite part of this song is

Can’t win for losing You’ll just disappoint ’em Just ’cause you can’t beat ’em Don’t mean you should join ’em

I love the message this song. Is this song perfect? In my opinion yes. Is this song the best country music has to offer? Probably not. I don’t care though. For me this is my mantra!

I give this song 5 stars for it makes me happy!

5 stars
