Randy Meadows Blackland Family Dirt Lyrics

Last updated: 07/20/2011 11:00:00 AM

If I'd been any other place
On any other day
If it had been another time
Or any other way
If I'd been someone else's kid
I might not 'a done the things I did.

I might not 'a sang the songs I've sung
Thought the thoughts I've thought
Hung with whom I've hung
Fought the ones I fought
Read the books I read
Wrote the things I've wrote
Said the things I've said
That got your precious goat

I might not a burned the wax I've burned
Done some things I shouldn't
Learned what I have learned
Promised things I couldn't
Slept the days I've slept
Woke the nights I've woke
Kept the words I've kept
Broke the ones I've broke
Chorus
I might not a turned the soil I've turned
Prayed the hopes I prayed
Burned the fields I've burned
Made the mess I've made
Found the love I found
Hurt the times I've hurt
Gained some precious ground
Blackland family dirt

Might not a fished the holes I've fished
Dropped the balls I've dropped
Closed my eyes and wished
Then caught the ones I've caught
Drank the things I drank
Smoked the things I smoked
Sunk the boats I've sank
Choked the times I've choked

I might not a talked to my old man
And a few old men of others
Verified their plans
By talkin' to our mothers
Dodged my share of lead
Seen the strain of dyin'
Bled the way I bled
Felt the hope of tryin'

Chorus

I might not a turned the soil I've turned
Prayed the hopes I prayed
Burned the fields I've burned
Made the mess I've made
Found the love I found
Hurt the times I've hurt
Gained some precious ground
Blackland family dirt
