Growing Up Like That

Lyrics

I was 12 years old with some bolts and a wrench, a piece of plywood that was 3/4 inch and daddy said son once your chores are one I'll give you one of them gris old barn poles. I went out in the pasture with no cow patties, got some post hole diggers, and I got after it. Had some sun on my back and a blister on my hand, but man I had myself a goal!

I dribbles that ball till the grass was gone and the ground was brown and flat. Me and Daddy played horse and the cows all "mooed" and we laughed. I was lucky and I didn't even know it growing up like that.

I learned the birds and the bee's from the cats and the dogs, & a frog starts out as a pollywog. The best blackberry cobbler is made from scratch, and worth every one you get from the briar patch. I found out firewood will warm you twice, once when you cut it and once when you light it. & I can't help but smile when I look back, cause I was lucky and I didn't even know It growin' up like that.

There was an old wooden barrel hind my grandpa's house where we threw our tatter peels and coffee grounds, say you want to catch catfish long as your arm, son you gotta have a night crawler farm. Well we'd sit on the dock and share a bottle of pop and catch a few and then head on back. Me and Daddy clean fish while the cats "meowed" and we laughed, I was lucky and I didn't even know it growing up like that
