Drinking Beer with Dad (Kid Rock)

It’s the simple things in life But life ain’t so simple right And times get hard and people can make you mad But I remember when I was young I couldn’t wait to turn 21 Sit in the backyard sun and drink beer with dad Drinking beer with dad Out there on the back porch swinging Drinking beer with dad Picking my guitar and grinning We’d hem and haw, we’d cuss and fight But that’s where I learned life’s best advice We’d talk about when I was young and bad Sometimes he’d make me fightin’ mad Best education I ever had Was out there on the back porch drinking beer with dad Nowadays most things have changed This whole world is heading down the drain There’s no God in schools Toting guns is the latest fad A little discipline would sure be nice A little lesson in wrong and right Maybe it’s time young man to have a beer with dad Drinking beer with dad Out there on the back porch swinging Drinking beer with dad Picking my guitar and singing I’d play him songs all through the night I’d praise the Lord I saw the light We’d stay up late and make mom mad But half the time we’d just laugh and laugh Some of the best times I ever had Was out there on the back porch drinking beer with dad Now son I’m so damn proud of you And the young man you’ve turned into You’re the best son a father could ever have And though your grandpa’s done past on Soon you’ll be 21 So come on the back porch son and have a beer with dad Drinking beer with dad Out there on the back porch swinging Drinking beer with dad Picking our guitars and grinning We’ll hem and haw, we’ll cuss and fight But I’ll pass along life’s best advice We’ll talk about your old granddad The things he gave us he never had I wish forever our time could last I wish this world wouldn’t move so fast Out here on the back porch Out here on the back porch drinking beer with dad
