Don?t let your head get in the way



Don?t let your head get in the way

There is an old guy I have come to know.
His wife taught my Wednesday night and Sunday school.
Looking back it taught me to grow.
His wife died and he is all alone.
When I get with him he likes to talk about the wild seeds he had sewn.
And how a quire girl fixed him.
Because of a bull he was thrown.
She nursed me back to health and we were married.
A lot of burdens we carried.
I had my head up my ass in the beginning.
Then I thought I knew it all.
I was so good I was getting to tall.
I made a few people around me feel small.
She brought me back to earth.
We are all children in need of Second birth.
She taught me
Keeping it friendly with family.
Always trying to keep my heart open for you.
Forgive and don?t let my head get in the way.

God blessed us with a child.
I didn?t want her to end up like me going wild.
So I was the straight and narrow Dad gone mild.
I sang in the Quartet.
I was good and people that were there.
Won?t forget.
Even a Deacon.
At times I was preaching.
I had my head up my ass in the beginning.
Then I thought I knew it all.
I was so good I was getting to tall.
I made a few people around me feel small.
She brought me back to earth.
We are all children in need of Second birth.
She taught me.
Keeping it friendly with family.
Always trying to keep my heart open for you.
Forgive and don?t let your head get in the way.




As we grew older.
My memory needed to grow stronger.
As she was slowly slipping away.
I thought I could do it all.
My daughter I needed to call.
This is my wife.
Together we shared and made a life.
Doctors and bills and paper work.
I was doing it all.
My daughter showed me so much mercy.
I needed it, I was a jerk.
I had my head up my ass in the beginning.
Then I thought I knew it all.
I was so good I was getting to tall.
I made a few people around me feel small.
She brought me back to earth.
We are all children in need of Second birth.
She taught me.
Keeping it friendly with family.
Always trying to keep my heart open for you.
Forgive and don?t your head get in the way.
