Grandpa's Hat

Lyrics

I don’t smoke a pipe nor dip snuff
Never chew tobacco or roll my own cigarettes
But I’ll be back directly to put on grandpa’s hat

Think about the times and where we’re at
How far we’ve come and how far we’ll go
What we’ve learned and what we know
And the wisdom of the man that wore this hat

Born in Carolina to farm the land
Raised chickens and planted corn in the fields
He’d be coming in soon to bring in the meal

Think about the heart and the way it feels
How much is trust and how much is fate
When mean love and when we mean hate
And the heart of a man that shows how he feels

If I knew then what I know now
I’d a listen with my heart wide open

Crusin’ in his 50 Ford all through town
He’d tell tales about when he was a kid
Ridin’ on his pony and wearing his cowboy hat

Think about your dreams with all your might
From where they’ve come and where they part
What we learn when we open our heart
And the laughter of man who enjoys his life

I don’t smoke a pipe nor dip snuff
Never chew tobacco or roll my own cigarettes
But I’ll be back directly to put on grandpa’s hat

Think about the times and where we’re at
How far we’ve come and how far we’ll go
What we’ve learned and what we know
And the wisdom of the man that wore this hat

And the wisdom of the man that wears his hat
