Paul Brown Petty

Album: Blue Mountain (2012)
  • Paul brown petty was a good ol man
    Felt a little better when you shook his hand
    Let me tell you little bout and you'll understand
    Why Paul brown petty was a good ol man

    He grew up in the depression and he fought in the war
    He never talked to much about the other shore
    But he was real good lookin in his uniform
    Officer petty in '44

    And you might say
    Hey what's so great
    Sounds like a simple man
    He wasn't rich or famous
    But to me he sure was grand

    He married a girl from down the street
    Built her a house down by a creek
    One girl, two boys, five mouths to feed
    Paul brown petty built a family

    He opened a shop down on the square
    He'd sit you on up in his barbers chair
    Get a summertime buzz or a real close shave
    Get ya all cleaned up, send you on your way

    And you might say
    Hey what's so great
    Sounds like a simple man
    He wasn't rich or famous
    But to me he sure was grand

    He was a Cumberland Presbyterian
    He went up to meet his maker in '91
    Sometimes when I talk about him I get sad
    You see Paul brown petty was my grandad

    His courage runs down in my blood
    His kindness in his eyes
    If you can see a man in me
    He's the reason why

    Paul brown petty was a good ol man
    Felt a little better when he shook your hand
    And if you could've known him you'd understand
    Why Paul brown petty was a good ol man Writer/s: BRANDON HEATH, HEATHER LYNN MORGAN
