Get Got

Album: Hope On The Rocks (2012)
  • Said the old man to the young man
    Leanin' on the fence
    Spittin' out his wisdom
    That didn't make much sense
    He said I'm gon' give ya somethin'
    That'll help you in a jam
    Your on the job with a woman
    You sit where you can

    When you find yourself in a hole stop diggin'
    Cotton row gets long, keep pickin'
    Fish ain't bitin', then son keep fishin'
    Always drink upstream from your cattle
    Be aware of cars and women
    They run cold and hot
    Sometimes you get it
    Sometimes you get got

    When it comes to country living
    You can't do no wrong
    Listen to a front porch prophet
    Who's been living twice as long
    Precious little gems
    From wouldn'ts and I wants
    Old man soapbox summons
    Simple do's and don'ts

    Like
    Ya' always catch more bees with honey
    Less is more 'cept love and money
    Ride in the truck in between your buddies
    You won't have to get out and open the gate
    Tell the truth it's twice as easy
    If you're right or not
    Sometimes you get it
    Sometimes you get got

    Don't mix your whiskey with decision
    Ask forgiveness, not permission
    Do a rain-dance when it's mistin'
    They say time ends everything
    Talk less, just listen
    You can learn a lot
    Sometimes you get it
    Sometimes you get got
    Sometimes you get it
    Sometimes you get Got

    Find yourself in a hole stop diggin'
    If the cotton row get a long, keep pickin'
    Fish ain't bitin' son, keep fishin'
    Always drink upstream from ya cattle
    Don't mix your whiskey with decision
    Ask forgiveness not permission Writer/s: BOBBY OLEN PINSON, TOBY KEITH COVEL
