Daryle Singletary & John Anderson – Black Sheep lyrics

My daddy was a brakeman on a highball traveling train
Momma, she raised four little children and her family had a good name
Poppa and momma wanted all for us they never had
Big brother, little brother, sister too, none of them turned out half bad
Accept me, I'm the black sheep of the family

Big brother went to college and became a doctor man
I guess he makes about a million dollars a year
Off the folks on insurance plan
He's gotta big long Mercedes Benz and a house overlooking the town
He sits in his jacuzzi and he watches the sun go down
He feels real sorry for me, I'm the black sheep of the family

I drive me a big ol' semi truck, I'm making payments on a two room shack
My wife, she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
I tell her what my poppa said to my momma
When he got off the highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs and teach my children to pray

My little sister married a banker, he owns a country club
He bought her a big ol' racing horse and a funny looking little dog
He buys her big rings and diamonds
And a brand new Japanese yacht
Well, they like to get together and talk about all the things they got
But they never mention me, I'm the black sheep of the family

I drive me a big ol' semi truck, I'm making payments on a two room shack
My wife, she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
I tell her what my poppa said to my momma
When he got off the highball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dogs and teach my children to pray
Tell 'em what to do John

I said, “Wake me up early, be good to my dogs
And teach my children to pray, oh”
