We Ain't Even Kin

from A Heart Of Gold Is Hard To Find by Benjamin Tod



people say I look like my grandfather
I begin to explain we ain’t even kin
he’ll interrupt with why bother
and saunter away with a sideways grin
we both understand not giving a damn about feeling
and why in the hell try and tell folks what you are living
life is defined by decisions
you may burn bridges you ain’t got time to mend
you’re too old to be in this condition
you’re too young for the lord to take in
he’d read me the bible ‘til midnight
and he’d tan my hide when he caught me in lies
when I dropped out of school we did fight
and we lost some years in our foolish pride
now i’m not sure if i’m better or worse for the
but we’re not concerned cause there’s nothing to learn from resentment
he cheers with the television
hoping this year Kentucky will win
I give a yell from the kitchen
I wear it with pride that i’m close to him
I count the days and watch as the haze fills his eyes
I won’t complain it’s a privilege to live and die
