Content to walk behind and wait in leaves for winter.
But the patience of our mother was so diligently tried.
She said, "Come in from the yard and wash your hands for supper, my lovely boys."
Content to stay in doors, my love, where I can keep you safe from harm.
Out that door and into the world, you're leaning on the everlasting arms.
Though he's got his mother's eyes, he's got his father's charm and his grandfather's pride.
But there's no time to be proud.
You're planting children in the ground to watch the grow older, mama.
Do you feel accomplished?
No wife, no money, no debts, no office.
But I can friends and I got plans and I got this guitar in my hands.
I want to put down my guitar and sing a song with my heart.
