I Got It Honest

It ain’t nothin’ but a small frame house on an acre lot
It ain’t that much diff’rent from any other house on the block

aint-nothin-but-a-small-frame-house
And it may not look like we got all our share of the promise
But at least one thing’s for sure,
I got it honest

share-of-the-promise

Roll out of the sack every mornin’, head on down to the mill
Give ’em all I got for eight, ’cause that’s the deal

If you’ll check out my paycheck
Well, you’ll see that there ain’t that much on it

My road sign...it's a simple picture, but one of my favorites that I've taken here.

But ev’ry single penny I’m paid,
I got it honest

 

I never had to hang my head in shame
For puttin’ a price tag on my name

bella-and-daddy
Never turned my back on what I believe
Or let my heart be ruled by greed
‘Cause buddy if I didn’t earn it, I don’t want it
That way I can always say,
I got it honest

My sweet mare...breakaway is back on, nose shoved into me for comfort.


Now you ain’t looking at some dude

That was born with a Silver spoon in his mouth

And I might seem like some kind of low-life
To that highfalutin’ crowd

Hubby n Sable
But I’m plain spoken, straight talkin’
And damn proud of what I have accomplished

Some folks appreciate that and some don’t
But, I got it honest

 

Shelter Peeking

Now when I die, I may not leave my kids a fortune
But I hope they know’d my life stood for things that were important

Happiness is
And I’ll hand out the same sturdy old values of my daddy and my momma

bella-and-her-girlIt made me every ounce of what I am and
I got it honest

I never had to hang my head in shame
For puttin’ a price tag on my name

Definitely worth the price we paid for it!

Never turned my back on what I believe
Or let my heart be ruled by greed

"Hello Mom Lady's person...got nummies for me?"

‘Cause brother if I didn’t earn it, I don’t want it

Such a smart and pretty girl!

That way I can always say,
I got it honest

Friend there ain’t no doubt about it,
I got it honest

Our house.

Our house.
