Good Ol' Beast by Chris Daniels 2012

My baby calls me a pack rat , Aw imagine that
I keep my friends all my life
Got a patient wife and my Daddy's hand me down truck
If I run it too fast , It'll bust up kick my ass
When it all falls apart I go back to the start
And try and fix it again

He said you've got a good old beast
It needs a tune up at least
I'm guessing that all -- probably an over hall
To get you back on the street
Don't put it out back to rot
It was the best truck I got
Don't need no SUV just some TLC
To get er' back on the street

My Mama works in her garden, these days that's her favorite thing
She goes to church on Sunday, loves to hear that choir sing
Daddy said she had a fall, scared the hell out of us all
Daddy said she's OK
Cause when they took her away
She was talking Camellia's again

He said -- she's been a good old beast
Th' said she needs a tune up at least
Maybe that all -- probably an over hall
To get her back on her feet
I won't let stay in there and rot
That woman's all that I've got
Don't send the cavalry just some TLC
To get her back home with me

Me and my wife we hit hard times, aw imagine that
She got lonely and angry, so grabbed my coat and my hat
Somewhere down the block, I felt my heart nearly stop
I called her up on the phone, I said baby can I come home
Can we work this out
