Story behind the song
This song comes directly out of my childhood, and the summers spent on my grandparents farm in Louisiana.
Lyrics
BETTER MEMORIES ® 2016 Marvin Adcock We were skinny towhead kids in Louisiana Livin’ not to far from the Arkansas line Barefoot walkin’ hot blacktop with a quarter for a soda From the farm to town in the summertime Sunday dinner always centered around the family In the shotgun house out in the red dirt pines Grandma scoldin’ grandpa for teasin’ us and bein’ ornery It’s like a Kodak moment in my mind The older I get, the more it sinks in I wouldn’t be who I am if not for where I’ve been Every stage of every age rollin’ down life’s road I swear there’ll never be better memories than those I remember tiny fingers holdin’ tight From a little hand graspin’ on to mine It was like the Lord had pulled a chord turnin’ on the light Puttin’ my priorities in line The older I get, the more it sinks in I wouldn’t be who I am if not for where I’ve been Every stage of every age rollin’ down life’s road I swear there’ll never be better memories than those Sometimes I think I’d like to have those moments back But I wouldn’t trade those days for where I’m at Cause the older I get, the more it sinks in I wouldn’t be who I am if not for where I’ve been Every stage of every age rollin’ down life’s road I swear there’ll never be better memories than those...Lord knows How could there every be better memories than those
