  • Before the sun came up
    He sipped that coffee black
    Slid on his muddy boots
    Pulled down his feed store cap
    He taught me how to grease the points
    On that massey 2-4-0
    But I was way too busy
    Didn't really care to go
    So he worked the fields alone
    But what I didn't know

    Up on that tractor
    Things might be faster in the world
    But big wheels rollin' slow
    Help you see what's important
    What really does matter
    Up on that tractor

    Just like the dirt is black
    So do the years fly by
    He stayed home with mom
    I travelled far and wide
    And like a good man does
    He listened when I called
    Told him 'bout my crazy life
    And all the things I saw
    But when it was time to go
    He wanted me to know

    Up on that tractor
    Things might be faster in the world
    But big wheels rollin' slow
    Help you see what's important
    What really does matter
    Up on that tractor
    It tore my world apart
    When god took him away
    Didn't get to say goodbye
    And I miss him everyday
    When all the fields grew up
    This is right back where I came

    Up on that tractor
    Things might be faster in the world
    But big wheels rollin' slow
    Up on that tractor
    Things might be faster in the world
    But big wheels rollin' slow
    Help you see what's important
    What really does matter
    I know even more now what really does matter
    Up on that tractor
    Up on that tractor
    Up on dad's tractor Writer/s: Frank Rogers, Granger Smith
