About the song
Used to think Saturdays were for watching cartoons and going fishing; then life happened.
Hit That Floor A Running
©2003 James Odle, Jr. / Susie Marshall

Me and little brother sleeping in
on a sunny, summer morn
Daddy busted into our room
without any warning
"I've been up since first daylight
up and at 'em sleepy heads
this farm won't run itself."
and as he walked away he said....

The cows need milking
Chickens need feeding
The garden needs weeding
The rows need seeding
We got fields need tending
Fences need mending
And if you think I'm funning
You better hit that floor a running

Daddy had us on the tractor
by the tender age of seven
spent our childhood working daddy's
little piece of Heaven
now I'm grown and married
with two kids of my own
I sound just like him
at the break of every dawn

(repeat chorus)

I remember when we laid dad
down by mama's side
some folks say it rained that day
I say this old farm cried
Dad told me and little brother
to keep this farm alive
as the sun comes up over the fields of grain
I can still hear him saying

(repeat chorus)
