THE OLD MAN WAS COVERED WITH TATTOOS AND SCARS HE GOT SOME IN PRISON AND OTHERS IN BARS THE REST HE GOT WORKING’ ON OLD JUNK CARS IN THE DAYTIME
THEY LOOKED LIKE TOMBSTONES IN OUR YARD AND I NEVER SEEN HIM WHEN HE WASN’T TIRED AND MEAN
HE SOLD USED PARTS TO MAKE ENDS MEET COVERED WITH GREASE FROM HIS HEAD TO HIS FEET CUSSING’ THE SWEAT AND THE TEXAS HEAT AND MOSKEETERS
AND THE NEIGHBORS SAID WE LIVED LIKE HICKS BUT THEY BRUNG THEIR CARS FOR PA TO FIX ANYHOW
HE WAS VETERAN-PROUD, TRIED AND TRUE HE’D FOUGHT TILL HIS HEART WAS BLACK AND BLUE DIDN’T KNOW HOW HE’D MADE IT THROUGH THE HARD TIMES

HE BOUGHT OUR HOUSE ON THE G.I. BILL BUT IT WASN’T WORTH ALL HE HAD TO KILL TO GET IT
HE DRANK PEARL IN A CAN AND JACK DANIELS BLACK CHEWED TOBACCO FROM A MAIL POUCH SACK HAD AN OLD DOG THAT WAS TRAINED TO ATTACK SOMETIMES
HE’D GET DRUNK AND MEAN AS A RATTLESNAKE AND THERE WASN’T TOO MUCH THAT HE WOULD TAKE FROM A STRANGER

THERE WERE THIRTEEN KIDS AND A BUNCH OF DOGS A HOUSE FULL OF CHICKENS AND A YARD FULL OF HOGS I SPENT THE SUMMERTIME CUTTING’ UP LOGS FOR THE WINTER TRYING’ LIKE THE DEVIL TO FIND THE LORD WORKING’ LIKE A HONKY FOR MY ROOM AND BOARD COAL-BURIN’ STOVE, NO NATURAL GAS IF THAT AIN’T COUNTRY, I’LL KISS YOUR ASS
