"Daddy Only Did the Best He Knew How"
by bret harold hart

I wanted to try and get this down before we’re gone...45 years of not sayin’ that much is what’s been getting’ me down...Sometimes I flash back to ’65 and see him wiping’ his brow [and I know…] my daddy only did the best that he knew how...Can’t say I was an easy child…I put ‘em both through hoops...And took the whippings I knew I’d get as Dad’s belt left its loops...Now I’ve got tough kids of my own and Daddy’s words ring true...“This is going to hurt me more than it’ll hurt you.”...I guess you never really understood my style, different as it is from your own...But as God is my witness, this man you see, is from your Bible grown...I do my best in front of kids and crowds like you and Grandpa done You showed me how to raise my children right…ask any of ‘em....I wanted to try and get this down before we’re gone 45 years of not sayin’ that much is what’s been getting’ me down...Sometimes I flash back to ’65 and see him wiping’ his brow [and I know…] my daddy only did the best that he knew how … Daddy only did the best that he knew how



"Pig On A Swing"
by bret harold hart

Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’…Lots of things to bring, including your brain…and we wonder what we’ll do with no cable when it’s rainin’ Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’ The pig’s on a swing, while industry goes fleein’ Some of us will stay, but a whole lot more are leavin’ And we wonder what we’ll do with no cable when it’s rainin’ Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’ Just a big, ol’ rocking ham…NC’s “North Star” is hurtin’ Just a big, ol’ rocking ham… maybe time to drop the curtain A big, ol’ rocking ham makes me think of many things I’m seein’ what you show me…I see a pig on a swing The pig’s on a swing, with a handful of candy When there’s nothing’ left to do, we all get a little randy Even preachers do it too, with no cable when it’s rainin’ Got a pig on a swing…but I’m not complainin’...Just a big, ol’ rocking ham… NC’s “North Star” is hurtin’ Just a big, ol’ rocking ham… maybe time to drop the curtain...A big, ol’ rocking ham makes me think of many things I’m seein’ what you show me… I see a pig on a swing
