      About "Help Somebody"

      Lyrics for Van Zant - "Help Somebody"

      Well grandaddy was a hillbilly scholar,
      blue collar of a man...
      He came from the school
      where you didn't need nothin' if you couldn't make it with your own two hands
      He was backwoods, backwards, used words like:
      no sir, yes ma'am, by god, be darned, hell yeah I'm American..
      and all the years he walked this earth
      I swear all he did was work.
      He said the devil dreams on an idle horse
      so you listen to me squirt..

      Don't get too high on a bottle,
      and get right with the man.
      Fight your fights, find your grace
      and all the things that you can't change, and help somebody if you can

      Now Granny said sonny
      stick to your gun if you believe in something
      no matter what
      cause it's better to be hated for who you are
      Than beloved for what you're not.
      She was 5 feet of concrete
      New York born and raised on a slick city street.
      She'll stare you down, stand her ground,
      still kickin' and screamin' at 93
      I remember just how frail she looked
      in that hospital bed
      taking her last few breaths of life
      and smiling as she said

      Don't get too high on a bottle,
      just a little sip every now and then,
      fight your fights,
      find your grace,
      and all the things that you can't change
      and help somebody if you can,
      and get right with the man

      I never let a cowboy make the coffee
      yeah that's what Granny always said to my Grandad
      and he'd say never tell a joke
      that ain't that funny more than once
      and if you want to hear God laugh,
      tell Him your plans

      Don't get too high on a bottle,
      get right with the man, son.
      fight your fights,
      find your grace,
      and all the things you two can't change
      and help somebody if you can
      and get right with the man

      and get right with the man
