You see my old man's got a problem: He live with the bottle, thats the way it is. He says his body's too old for working, His body's too young to look like his. My mama went off and left him, she wanted more from life than he could give, I said, "Somebody's got to take care of him." So I quit school and that's what I did.

Intro
