Brandon Heath - Paul Brown Petty Lyrics

Paul Brown Petty was a good ol manYou felt a little better when he shook your handLet me tell you little bout him and you'll understandWhy Paul Brown Petty was a good 'ol manHe grew up in the depression and he fought in the warHe never talked too much about the other shoreBut he was real good lookin' in his uniformOfficer Petty in '44And you might say Hey what's so greatSounds like a simple manHe wasn't rich or famousBut to me he sure was grandHe married a girl from down the streetBuilt her a house down by a creekOne girl two boys five mouths to feedPaul Brown Petty built a familyHe opened a shop down on the squareHe'd sit you on up in his barbers chairGet a summertime buzz or a real close shaveGet ya all cleaned up, send you on your wayAnd you might say hey what's so great Sounds like a simple manHe wasn't rich or famous But to me he sure was grandHe was a Cumberland PresbyterianHe went up to meet his maker in '91Sometimes when I talk about him I get sadYou see Paul Brown Petty was my grandadHis courage runs down in my bloodHis kindness in my eyesIf you can see a man in meHe's the reason whyPaul Brown Petty was a good ol manYou felt a little better when he shook your handAnd if you could have known him you'd understandWhy Paul Brown Petty was a good ol man
