Corey Smith - Single-Wide Home

rate me

Daddy worked out in the lumber yard, <br />

By the cemetery road.<br />

Carrying the load the best he could.<br />

We; d see him from the highway<br />

When mom would drive us to town.<br />

He looked so small between those rolls of wood<br />

<br />

He'd come home around supper time<br />

Kick the sawdust off his boots<br />

Take my baby brother in his arms<br />

I was only five years old<br />

But I remember it so well<br />

I learned what love was there in our single wide home<br />

<br />

It was a single wide home<br />

On a dead end gravel road<br />

The back side of my granddaddys land<br />

We had a fifteen acre playground<br />

And it was paradise to me<br />

Lord I wish I could go home again.<br />

<br />

We got cable television, back in 85.<br />

50 channels were the world to me.<br />

Then the cartoons and the evening news<br />

Taught me how to be afraid<br />

Of guns and drugs and poverty<br />

<br />

I cried momma oh momma I don't ever wanna leave<br />

She said son one day you'll be on your own<br />

But jesus died so you might live and you don't have to be afriad<br />

Yea I found God there in our single home<br />

<br />

It was a single wide home<br />

And I had a bible in my hand<br />

And jesus saved me from my sins<br />

As I've gotten older<br />

I've drifted away<br />

Lord I wish I could go home again.<br />

<br />

I wish I could go home again<br />

<br />

Now that trailers in the scrap yard<br />

Out by the interstate where all the strangers come in<br />

When grandad died they sold the property<br />

Tore down the timber<br />

And started builing<br />

<br />

It was a single wide home<br />

Just off jackson trail<br />

Back before the developers moved in<br />

It's all covered up now<br />

By track houses and rows<br />

Lord I wish I could go home again<br />

I wish I could go home again<br />

To a single wide home<br />

Ohhha
