Eighty Proof

September 30, 2013

A long time ago in the land of the free, and the home of the brave,
Back when you knew that the church doors would be open, and seats were saved
When your sons and daughters made an honest living,
Everybody made it home for Thanksgiving,
Family and friends worked together like they always Do

Before satellite phones had internet access,
Before all those extracurricular classes,
Before you hated Mexicans for work that you won’t do,

Before there were wars for target practice,
Before your big stock market crashes,
Before your Chevy Avalanches,

I was just like You,
I was Tried, and True
I was ‘Eighty Proof’
