Down Home

I’m just an old country boy at heart from Northeast Texas so hospitality, respect, and treat’n people right is how I was raised. I guess you would say it’s something that resonants with me even to this day.

And if you know me very well you know I am a huge country music fan. I was riding home yesterday when and old favorite came across the air waves on GoCountry 105.1 FM. A buddy of mine Shawn Parr will appreciate you listening.

When I think of “street to the seat” the words of this song come to mind. So as you look to help persons belong this week think through making your place be, “down home where they know you by name and treat you like family.” Everyone is looking for it so let’s do our best to provide it.

Down Home“, by The Group Alabama from 1991

Just off of the beaten path
A little dot on a state road map
That’s where I was born & where I’ll die
Things move at a slower pace
Nobody’s in a rat race
And these days that’s a special way to fly

Chorus
Down Home where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home a man’s good word & a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they’re fallin on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up Down Home

In the corner of a hardware store
Gathered round a checker board
Old men telling lies & crowning kings
Kids driven round the old town square
Tops rolled down in the cool night air
Go & see what’s shaken at the Dairy Queen

Chorus

When I was a boy I couldn’t wait to leave this place
But now I wanna see my children raised
Down Home
Down Home
Folks know if they’re fallin on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up Down Home
Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home a man’s good word & a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they’re fallin on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up Down Home
Down Home
Way Down Home
Down Home
Down Home
Way Down Home
Down Home
