My dad cut off his thumb chopping wood
stayed home less than a month then went back to work
he finished dry wall down at the new post office
said he was fine but it was clear his hands still hurt
and uncle rex came to live with us that summer
sleeping on our couch until he could find a better place to live
it was something to see my uncle rex sober
my dad gave him everything we had to give

in his 1971 leather coat
i told him i admired his crooked nose
he was such a funny man
it's good to have a brother who takes care of you when nobody else can

i bought me a car down in brunswick
so i could drive so far away from there
five miles out of town my old car got sick
willie nelson sang on the cassette tape player
he said "nightlife is no good life, but it's my life"

called my mom from the pay telephone
she sent money so i could fly my ass home
cause that's what a mother does
it's good to have a family who takes care of you when georgia chews you up
