  • Tonka trucks and G.I. Joes
    Jumping those hills with Luke and Bo
    Plastic cap guns and a swimming hole
    Don't get no dirt on your church clothes
    Win or lose, we cheer for the Braves
    Ten percent in the offering plate
    Sunday chicken and a NASCAR race
    Sure'd be nice to get back to that place

    There was dirt on daddy's clothes
    From putting that bacon on mama's stove
    Dog barking in the yard at a truck we don't know
    All we had was us
    And that little bitty house and a lotta love
    We had it all when we didn't have much

    Eighteen, left it all behind
    Chasing a girl, chasing a dime
    Went so far tryna get mine
    I can't see that old porch light
    That led me home at night

    There was dirt on daddy's clothes
    From putting that bacon on mama's stove
    Dog barking in the yard at a truck we don't know
    All we had was us
    And that little bitty house and a lotta love
    We had it all when we didn't have much
    When we didn't have much

    I can still hear grandma reading
    That red letter Book of John
    I can still smell coffee in the kitchen
    Old Don Williams on

    And there was dirt on daddy's clothes
    From putting that bacon on mama's stove
    Dog barking in the yard at a truck we don't know
    All we had was us
    And that little bitty house and a lotta love
    We had it all when we didn't have much
    Had it all when we didn't have much
    Little bitty house and a lotta love
    We had it all when we didn't have much
