I was sittin' with him on his front porch swing
Soakin' up wisdom and Grandma's sweet tea
Listenin' to his stories; man, he'd done it all
His tour in the army in his wilder days
Raisin' my daddy and bailin' his hay
He cut off a twist of tobacco and stuck it in his jaw

Cocked back his hat with a sideways grin and gave me that old wink
He said, "I can tell you somethin' 'bout most anything

"But don't ask me 'bout a woman
"All I know is boy, they're somethin'
"They're tender and they're tough
"Can break you down and lift you up

"Don't ask me 'bout a woman
"That's some complicated stuff
"They ain't made to figure out
"They're just made to love"

He said, "Boy, I've lived nearly eighty years
"There's a lot of know-how between these ears
"But when it comes to your grandma, I'm still your age
"It took me a long, long time to learn
"Lovin' a woman is full of left turns
"The more they change, the more they stay the same

"Son, it's been that way since the beginning of time
"We're behind the wheel, but just along for the ride"

"But don't ask me 'bout a woman
"All I know is boy, they're somethin'
"They're tender and they're tough
"Can break you down and lift you up

"Don't ask me 'bout a woman
"That's some complicated stuff
"They ain't made to figure out
"They're just made to love"

Fast forward ten years, it's Saturday night
She's changed three times, says her hair ain't right
My mind reels back to the time and place
When I heard my grandpa say

"Don't ask me 'bout a woman
"That's some complicated stuff
"They ain't made to figure out
"They're just made to love"

Now I know what he's talkin' about
They're just made to love
