My folks they were always the first family to arrive
There was one bathroom to bathe and shave in
And hot water for only three

Talk about your faith
Out of Indiana clay
Out of just cornbread and beans
And somehow gave it wings
I can still hear my dad cussin'
The spring planting is coming
Mom she's done the laundry
Now they've stayed together

Talk about your faith
Out of Indiana clay
Out of just cornbread and beans
And somehow gave it wings
And now they've raised five children
But the pain didn't leave them crippled
Never picture perfect
Who somehow knew the value

Talk about your faith
Out of Indiana clay
Out of just cornbread and beans
And somehow gave it wings
