Modern Times
Recorded by Red Steagall
Written by Glenn Sutton and Carl Jackson

I remember momma almost leaving daddy
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
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

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
The way I knew it back before these modern times

I just can’t keep from wishing I was on a creek bank fishing
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
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

The way I knew it back before these modern times
