Don't Ever Sell Your Saddle

                                         {Don't Ever Sell Your Saddle}

Daddy shoulda been a preacher man

'Cause everybody loved to hear him speak

He didn't always follow his own advice

But we got a sermon every week

He'd say trouble always starts as fun

And broken hearts will always mend

Tough times don't last, tough people do

And nothing breaks if it can bend


Don't ever sell your saddle

Never owe another man

Watch where you spit on a windy day

Don't use words you don't understand

Find the Lord before you need him

And never lose your pride

Don't ever sell your saddle

'Cause life's a long, long ride

Daddy never ran from anything

Always took his share of the blame

Had a heart big enough to fill a valley up

But hard enough to stop a train

He said only fight when you have to

'Cause there's always a faster gun

And you'll know a hero from a coward

When you see which way they run


Daddy left me his old saddle the day he passed on

And these words are etched into my mind just like they were in stone
