about

This song is about my family, every word is true.

lyrics

My great granddaddy met his mate out on a cotton farm
She spit tobacco and was damn mean
They eloped somewhere in the heart of Dixie
Couldn't afford no wedding, why cause a scene

Granddaddy was born, between a rock, and a hard place
Between the Georgia clay and the Mississippi mud
Had a little bit of that cotton picking in his hands
And a little bit of rambling in his blood

grandaddy met my nana on a greyhound bus somewhere between estill (??) and the ATL
said you were the prettiest thing I’ve seen on two legs. that sealed the deal in love they fell

My daddy was born, between a rock, and a hard place
Between the Georgia clay and the Mississippi mud
Had a little bit of that cotton picking in his hands
And a little bit of white lightnin in his blood

Momma was a flower child from the Buckeye State.
Daddy drove big rigs across this land
Said momma what cha say I get you out of Ohio
Couple months later, he took her hand

I was born, between a rock, and a hard place
Between the Georgia clay and the Mississippi mud
Had a little bit of that cotton picking in his hands
And a little bit of diesel in my blood

Three generations of hard working in my hands
And hell of a lot of hard living in my blood
