Ray Scott – Dirty Shirt lyrics
Ronnie wasn't much on the thought of a coat and tie
There ain't much good to a man wearing steel toed boots from 8 to 5
He's been known to pop a top on a brew
He came off a little rough sometimes, but the folks that know him knew

If you can look past a dirty shirt
See beyond greasy hands
You can see a heart hard at work
And a damn good man

Army green seemed to suit him more than college life
Well, that's what his old man did
And he turned out all right
He never got him that great big house or a fancy car
But y'all it ain't the neighborhood you're in
It's the neighbor that you are

But if you can look past a dirty shirt
See beyond greasy hands
You can see a heart hard at work
And a damn good man

He's got scars and an angel on his arm that he got in Saigon in '65
To most folks he ain't nothing more than the ol' boy on the corner changing tires

But If look past a dirty shirt
See beyond greasy hands
You're gonna find a heart hard at work

Yeah, if you can look past a dirt shirt
See beyond greasy hands
You'll find a heart hard at work
And a damn good man

Kinda like my dad
