Modern Times Recorded by Red Steagall Written by Glenn Sutton and Carl Jackson
C I remember momma almost leaving daddy F C That was the year the crops all failed
She got down in her back they got back together G7 C The good Lord put the wind back in their sails
I can almost see the saw mill where my brother almost got killed F C He worked like hell for fifty cents a day
We all went to church on Sunday
We were proud of being country G7 C And always spoke well of the USA
F Things are not the same in modern times D7 G7 The way this world is changing is such a crime F G7 C F I’d give all I own for the family and a home C F C The way I knew it back before these modern times
I just can’t keep from wishing I was on a creek bank fishing F C And huntin’ squirrels down in the bottom land
Or sittin’ in the porch swing hearing mom and dad sing G7 C Oh God’s Unchanging Hands
I’m so tired of city living traffic and tall buildings F C I long to go back to the good ol’ days
I spend my last quarter for a drink of cold well water G7 C Out back of that old shack where I was raised
Repeat #3 x2
F C F C The way I knew it back before these modern times
