  • I was born in '37, a sharecropper's son
    Out on the great south plains
    There in the suburbs of a dryland cotton patch
    In the middle of a west Texas rain

    And for all of you folks out there in radioland
    who don't know what a West Texas rain is,
    Well that's what's commonly known as a sandstorm
    Remember that, you'll need it later

    I guess times were hard but livin' was easy
    We always found a way to survive
    Fried chicken and gravy and an old tune off the guitar
    Was enough to keep a country boy alive

    And on Saturday afternoons it was Lester Pruitt's "The Picture Show"
    On Saturday's nights is the Grand Ol' Uproar from Nashville Tennessee, take it away boys

    Lookin' back now and thinkin' it over
    Life was like an old country song
    My mama taught me the melody and daddy taught me the chords
    I made the words up on my own

    And sometimes it didn't rhyme, but they always had a reason,
    Even if it was unbeknownst to no one but myself
    I guess all that west Texas sand in my crawl, that's what make me so mean
    I'd bet I was the only boy ever expelled from Sunday school
    Lover, fighter, wild-horse rider, and purty dern good windmill maker
    Look out world, here I come
