        D
OLD MAN RED AT THE STORE WOULD LEAVE A NOTE ON THE DOOR
          D
IT'D SAY "RAN TO THE HOUSE, BE BACK IN A FEW, LEAVE YOUR MONEY ON THE COUNTER"
       D
IT WAS 26 CENTS FOR A COKE AND SOME GUM NOTHIN' NEVER GOT STOLE
D
YOU COULD TRUST EVERYONE, EVEN OUT-OF-TOWNERS
    Em                          A 
AND FOOTBALL WAS PLAYED FOR THE GAME
    Em                     A
AND MUSIC WAS MADE FOR THE SONG
     Em                      A              D  
WHEN DADDY WAS A STRONG MAN, AND MAMA WAS A BLONDE


I MISSED A BIRD WITH A ROCK WITH MY NEW SLING SHOT
BROKE A WINDOW WHERE I WAS THE TALK OF THE TOWN AND THAT WAS BIG TROUBLE
THERE WAS NOT POINT IN RUNNIN' OR TRYIN' TO LIE
WAS IT WORTH SEEIN' ALL OF THAT SHAME IN DAD'S EYES OR WATCHIN' THAT BELT GET UNBUCKLED, NO WAY
MOST EVERYONE PLAYED BY THE RULES
RIGHT WAS RIGHT AND WRONG WAS WRONG
WHEN DADDY WAS A STRONG MAN, AND MAMA WAS A BLONDE


Chorus:
        G                 A 
OH IT'S CLEAR AS DAY HERE IN MY MIND
  G            A
A PICTURE OF A SIMPLER TIME
     G                 A                  Bm  
WISH CHANGE WOULD JUST LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE
               G
THOSE DAYS ARE GONE NOW
     Em                     A               D
WHEN DADDY WAS A STRONG MAN, AND MAMA WAS A BLONDE

NOW THIS BOY ON MY SHOULDER TELLS ALL HIS FRIENDS
THAT I CAN BEAT UP THEIR DADS AND HIS MAMA'S THE PRETTIEST MAMA IN THE WORLD, AND SHE IS
YEAH I THOUGHT THAT TOO WHEN I WAS HIS AGE
DON'T REMEMBER HOW LONG I KEPT THINKIN' THAT WAY BUT ONE THINGS FOR SURE
HE'LL BE STANDING WHERE I AM ONE DAY
BUT HIS MIND WILL BE SOMEWHERE BACK HOME
WHEN DADDY WAS A STRONG MAN, AND MAMA WAS A BLONDE

Chorus
