I got a picture of him, barefoot in the mud.
When he turned ten years old, on May 8, '53.
The closest thing he had to a Dad was his Uncle Bob.
An' that little boy, with big blue eyes and calloused hands,

The fourth child of five to my Grandma, Eula May.
Her Daddy spent his life workin' in the coal mines.
But even Saints need Angels to show them the way.
And that Angel married my old man.
And there were times I tried to buck, the truthful things they said.
'Cause my folks are just like mountains, I looked at from afar.

There's no way a 'phone call could express what's in my heart.
For Mamma and my old man.
For Mamma and Dad.
