satan's Tactics Have Not Changed
life blog
He had dirt under his nails
His hair was a little long
If you could get past those calloused fingers
Youíd see he worked Ďem to the bone
But he stood tall as he could
All that honesty had taken its toll
He had a spark in his eye
It was just the outside getting old
I asked him one day if he had any regrets
Without a second thought
He looked me dead in the eye
And he said:

Iíve got an old ball cap
My jeans are getting old
If you look in my yard
Youíll see Old Glory on her pole
I got a wife at the house
Taught my grandson how to shoot
Heck thatís living son!

And thatís how you know itís me

That got me thinking as we talked some more
Things have changed some
A man canít have no peace
And he darned sure better lock his door
But a million dollars canít buy a life like that
You gotta build it and thatíll never get old
Ainít no machine gonna do it
Ainít no body gonna do it for you
So I straightened out my cap
Dusted off my jeans
Smiled and said thanks
And he said, ďFor what?Ē

Iíve got an old ball cap
My jeans are getting old
If you look in my yard
Youíll see Old Glory on her pole
Iíll have a wife at the house
Teach my grandson how to shoot
Thatís what lifeís about!

And thatís how you know itís me

Some time down the line I can see it coming
Some young kid maybe even my soníll
Wonder why I ainít got the latest this or that
Iíll tellíim:

Iíve got an old ball cap
My jeans are getting old
If you look in my yard
Youíll see Old Glory on her pole
Iíll got a wife at the house
I can teach you how to shoot
Heck that's living son

And that's how you know

Iíve got an old ball cap
My jeans are getting old
If you look in my yard
Youíll see Old Glory on her pole
Iíll got a wife at the house
I can teach you how to shoot

And thatís how you know itís me
