  • Sittin' on the toolbox
    In this short bed Chevrolet
    I come out here to the county line
    When I need some time to think

    And lately I've been thinking
    'Bout a boy I used to know
    He was taken from this world
    At twenty-one years old

    When I look up at that photograph
    See the smile there on his face
    Well man it sure is hard to grasp
    But I know he's in a better place

    [Chorus]
    'Cause God's got a spot in heaven
    For good ol' boys like us
    Yea he knows wings just ain't our thing
    So up there they drive pick up trucks

    And as we speak they're probably
    Spending tires and slinging mud
    Yea God's got a place
    Yea God's got a place
    For good ol' boys like us

    You ever get the feelin'
    That they still hang around
    Yea you can almost feel them
    Though their no where to be found

    Some people tell me son
    It's all in your head
    But I say hey it's just their way
    Of watching over us my friend

    Well life goes on when we lose someone
    'Cause it ain't our time yet
    But country folks just ain't the kind
    Of people to forget

    That god's got a spot in heaven
    For good ol' boys like us
    Yea he knows wings just ain't our thing
    So up there they drive pick up trucks

    And as we speak they're probably
    Spinnin' tires and slinging mud
    Yea God's got a place
    Yea God's got a place
    For good ol' boys like us

    Ohhh yeaa, for good ol' boys like us

    When I climb up off that toolbox
    And slide up in the seat
    I thank god for taking care of my buddy
    Until the next time we meet

    God's got a spot in heaven
    For good ol' boys like us
    Yea they've always got our backs
    From somewhere up above

    Because a country boy always looks out
    For the ones that he loves
    Yea god's got a place
    Hey god's got a place
    Yea god's got a place
    For good ol' boys like us

    Oh yea, for good ol' boys like us Writer/s: JONATHAN LAWHORN
