Lyrics:

DADDY WROTE A SONG

My Daddy wrote a song...
Bout lightnin' on a barbed wire fence
and the sky opened up, like the gates of Hell
It hasn't stormed like that since

My Daddy wrote a song...
Bout strings on a mandolin
and the fire in Grandpa's fingers
As the blood washed away his sins


My Daddy wrote a song...
Bout the time he got locked away
Stolen cars...beat up guitars
and how luck never broke his way

My Daddy Wrote a song...
On the back of an old beer box
and I swear sometimes, late at night
I can still hear those lyrics talk

My Daddy Wrote a song...
About his old work truck
and he didn't give a damn, as the gears would jam
Just tryin' to make a buck


My Daddy Wrote a song...
When they laid our Momma down to rest
and folks came from miles around
Safe to say, that it was his best

My Daddy Wrote a song...
The day before he died
Three quarter time and a bottle of wine
What a peaceful, final ride


(Slow Fade)~ My Daddy Wrote a song...
