A Life In A song

Written By: Chip Hart

Verse 1:
When I was young I couldn't wait to kick off the common dirt of my home town
Said goodbye to home and family Took off to shake hands with uncle Sam
I sailed the seven seas and got my passport stamped a lot along the way
Didn't mean to break too many hearts, I intended to come back another day

Refrain:
Well you know how some things can be
I was young and I could see
So many apples hangin' in the tree and i could pick them liberally

Verse 2:
Raisin' hell and drinkin' rye
Living life as large as it could be
Laughin' at security and shirkin' off responsibility

Refrain:
I could never settle down
Duly noted as the town clown
Work for me was havin' fun and
my work day was never done

Verse 3:
Ended up in guitar town
I looked around and I felt I was home
I ate dirt for quite a spell, the taste is not so bad when you're alone

Refrain:
Well you know how some things can be
I dug my heels in stubbbornly
I wanted my dad to come and see
his son play the Grand Ol' Opry

Verse 4:
As the years fly by make you wanna cry, I can tell my runnin' days are slowin' down
Sick and tired of being sick and tired
Lately my aching head's been spun around

Refrain:
My achin' head's been spun around cuz I sure miss my little town
That common dirt won't bother me, I'm missin' home and family

Well you know how some things can be
I've grown wise and I can't see any more apples hangin' in the tree so baby would you marry me
baby would you marry me
baby would you marry me
