In Color Lyrics

I said "Grandpa what's this picture here
It's all black and white
It ain't real clear is that you there?"
He said "Yeah, I was eleven

Times were tough back in '35
That's me and uncle Joe just tryin' to survive
A cotton farm, in a great depression

If it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

Oh and this one here was taken over seas
In the middle of hell in 1943
In the winter time, you can almost see my breath

That was my tail gunner ole Johnny Magee
He was a high school teacher from New Orleans
And he had my back right through the day we left

If it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

A picture's worth a thousand words
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color

This one is my favorite one
This is me and grandma in the summer sun
All dressed up the day we said our vows
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
And that rose was red and her eyes were blue
And just look at that smile I was so proud
That's the story of my life right there in black and white

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

A picture's worth a thousand words
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should have seen it in color

You should have seen it in color

Yeah, a picture's worth a thousand words
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should have seen it in color"

Jamey is sitting with his Grandpa looking through old pictures, and he shows him his old war pics, him and his grandma and long lost relatives. He's telling him telling the story isn't doing it justice, you have to had been there to see what it was all about.
