I was raised in the shadows of an old cotton mill
Small town heaven and a big-eyed boy
My daddy worked hard down at the factory
He didn't know nothin' 'bout the silver spoon

Out on the front porch swing
And sometimes we used to sing
We were leaning, leaning on
Livin' all those simple joys

And good ole boys down at the park
Made their way into my heart
I remember the old folks sittin' 'round talkin'
They said them young folks sure got a hard road

Out on the front porch swing
Just like they did for me
We are leaning, leaning on
Livin' all those simple joys

The everlasting arms of love
This Dixie boy is made of
