I've seen him plow a field of corn all day
That's reality
His overalls are black with dirt
But his face is still full of dignity
He talks about the waether
And he can tell you when it's gonna rain
Told me 'bout the flood of Twenty-Nine
That washed the crops away

Underneath that Alabama sky
Grandpa told me 'bout the things he'd seen
Underneath that Alabama sky
I listened to my Grandpa's memories

At times he mentions Grandma
