Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like this worlds gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn't seem so hazy

(Chorus)

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress, but I just don't know
And grandpa, let's wander back into the past
And paint me the picture of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did daddies really never go away
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days
Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

    This song reflects on the love, respect and loyalty that individuals once had for their family and themselves. A loved that went beyond self, putting family and the best interest of others ahead of our own selfishness! Children felt the love and security of dad and mom and enjoyed the simpler things in life! Children grew up with a sense of what is is really important in life 'family' and our committment to it!!

    Just what it says, this world has gotten way off track of what god intended. When two people, 1man and 1 woman, fell in love and committed that was it, no matter what they stuck it out just like they said in their vows and promised each other. Daddy was the head of the house and led his family in prayer and his word was as solid as iron. The more our technology progresses the worse things get in this cray world.
