Lyrics of Something To Be Proud Of

There's a story that my daddy tells religiously
Like clockwork every time he sees an opening
In a conversation 'bout the way things used to be
Well I'd just roll my eyes and make a bee line for the door
But I'd always end up starry eyed cross legged on the floor hanging on to every word
Man the things I heard
It was harder times and longer days
Five miles to school uphill both ways
We were cane switch raised and dirt floor poor
'Course that was back before the war
Yeah your uncle and I made quite a pair
Flying F fifteen's through hostile air
He went down but they missed me by a hair
He'd always stop right there and say
That's something to be proud of
That's a life you can hang your hat on
That's a chin held high as a tear falls down
A gut sucked in a chest stuck out
Like a small town flag a flyin' or a newborn baby cryin'
In the arms of the woman that you love
That's something to be proud of
So I'm graduatin' college that was mama's dream
But I was on my way to anywhere else when
I turned eighteen 'cos when you got a fast car
You think you've got everything
I learned quick those GTO's don't run on faith
I ended up broken down in some town north of LA
Working maximum hours for minimum wage
Well I fell in love next thing I know
The babies came the car got slow
I sure do miss that old hot rod
But you sure save gas in them foreign jobs
Dad I wonder if I ever let you down
If you're ashamed how
I turned out
Well he lowered his voice then he raised his brow
Said let me tell ya right now
That's something to be proud of
That's a life you can hang your hat on
You don't need to make a million
Just be thankful to be workin'
If you're doing what you're able
And putting food there on the table
And providing for the family that you love
That's something to be proud of
And if all you ever really do is the best you can well you did it man
That's something to be proud of
That's a life you can hang your hat on
That's a chin held high as a tear falls down
A gut sucked in a chest stuck out
Like a small town flag a flyin' or a newborn baby cryin'
In the arms of the woman that you love
That's something to be proud of
Yeah that's something to be proud of
Now that's something to be proud of
