My daddy was a brake man on a highball travelin' train
An' momma she raised four little children
and the family had a good name
An poppa and momma wanted for us all they never had
Big brother, little brother and sister too
none of them turned out half bad
'cept me

I'm the black sheep of the family

Big brother went to college and became a doctor man
I guess he makes about a million dollars a year
off the folks with insurance plans
He's got a big long mercedes-benz
And a house over-looking the town
He sits in his jacuzzi and he watches the sun go down
he feels real sorry for me,

I'm the black sheep of the family

Yeah I drive me a big ol' semi truck
I'm makin' payments on a two room shack
My wife she waits on tables
and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my poppa said to my momma
when he got off a highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs
and teach my children to play

Little sister married a banker
Yeah, he owns a country club
He bought her a big ol' racing horse
and a funny looking little dog
He buys her big rings and diamonds
and a brand new japanese yacht
And they like to get together
an' talk about all the things they've got
But they never mention me, hell no

I'm the black sheep of the family

Yeah, I drive me a big ol' semi truck
I'm makin' payments on a two room shack
My wife she waits on tables
and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my poppa said to my momma
when he got off a highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs
and teach my children to play

I'm sayin' Woman,
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs,
and teach my children to pray
