Drinking Beer With Dad Lyrics

It’s the simple things in life
But life ain’t so simple right
And times get hard and people can make you mad
But I remember when I was young
I couldn’t wait to turn 21
Sit in the backyard sun and drink beer with dad

Drinking beer with dad
Out there on the back porch swinging
Drinking beer with dad
Picking my guitar and grinning

We’d hem and haw, we’d cuss and fight
But that’s where I learned life’s best advice
We’d talk about when I was young and bad
Sometimes he’d make me fightin’ mad
Best education I ever had
Was out there on the back porch drinking beer with dad

Nowadays most things have changed
This whole world is heading down the drain
There’s no God in schools
Toting guns is the latest fad
A little discipline would sure be nice
A little lesson in wrong and right
Maybe it’s time young man to have a beer with dad

Drinking beer with dad
Out there on the back porch swinging
Drinking beer with dad
Picking my guitar and singing

I’d play him songs all through the night
I’d praise the Lord I saw the light
We’d stay up late and make mom mad
But half the time we’d just laugh and laugh
Some of the best times I ever had
Was out there on the back porch drinking beer with dad

Now son I’m so damn proud of you
And the young man you’ve turned into
You’re the best son a father could ever have
And though your grandpa’s done past on
Soon you’ll be 21
So come on the back porch son and have a beer with dad

Drinking beer with dad
Out there on the back porch swinging
Drinking beer with dad
Picking our guitars and grinning
We’ll hem and haw, we’ll cuss and fight
But I’ll pass along life’s best advice
We’ll talk about your old granddad
The things he gave us he never had
I wish forever our time could last
I wish this world wouldn’t move so fast
Out here on the back porch
Out here on the back porch drinking beer with dad
