DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS


Tva Lyrics

I grew up two hours north of Birmingham.
Me and my daddy used to fish next to Wilson Dam.
He told some stories? Camaros and J.W. Dant;
When I got a little older I wouldn't and now daddy can't.
So I thank God for the TVA,
Thank god for the TVA,
When me and my daddy used to bow to the river and pray,
Thank god for the TVA.

When I was fifteen, me and my girl sat out on the lock,
Watching the raccoons and terrapins dance on the rocks.
She let me put my hand up under her shirt;
I wanted her to want me so bad it hurt.
So I thank God for the TVA,
Thank god for the TVA,
When me and my baby used to lay 'round and wait on the day,
Thank god for the TVA.

My granddaddy told me when he was just seven or so,
His daddy lost work and they didn't have a row to hoe,
Not too much to eat for seven boys and three girls;
All lived in a tent? bunch of sharecroppers versus the world.
So his mama sat down, wrote a letter to FDR,
'En a couple days later, couple of county men came in a car,
Rode out in the field, told his daddy to put down the plow.
He helped build the dam, gave power to most of the South.
So I thank god for the TVA,
Thank god for the TVA,
When Roosevelt let us all work for an honest day's pay,
Thank god for the TVA.
