Extended Keywords: Growing up he taught him right from wrong
Thank God he took the time
He knew where that leather belt hung if he got out of line
Nothing like an honest week's work A good day of fishing
Always helped neightbors out Always first to lend a helping hand
He loved Earnhardt Got a red neck and a purple heart
Son is glad he's back from war in IraQ
