Song Lyrics


Song Meaning
Verse 1
Daddy retired from the carpenter trade
But still worked hard in the heat of the day
'Cause he raised a garden for food and for fun
And never wore a shirt in that hot Texas sun
Daddy read the holy bible three times through
But sweating made him thirsty for a good cold brew so we would
Sit down with a beer in the bright sunshine,
Eat greens and ripe tomatoes hot off the vine
With saltine crackers
We'd talk and roar with laughter
Oh, how I loved our conversations
Over salad, crackers and beer
Verse 2
Somewhere up in heaven there's a nail daddy drove
Where he can hang his shirt and work some garden rows
I picture him leaning on his rake taking pause
To chuckle at a mockingbird that's heckling the dog
I think I'll pack a sack with beer and veggies today
And go sit down with daddy on the grass by his grave like we would
Verse 3
Sit down with a beer in the bright sunshine,
Eat greens and ripe tomatoes hot off the vine
With saltine crackers
We'd talk and roar with laughter
Oh, how I loved our conversations
Over salad, crackers and beer
Verse 4
Daddy's simple recipe for RandR was just
Sit down with a beer in the bright sunshine
Eat greens and ripe tomatoes hot off the vine
With saltine crackers
Talk and roar with laughter
There's nothing like good conversation
Over salad, crackers and beer
Verse 5
You can't beat good conversation
Over salad, crackers and beer
