Junk Yard Dog

It was warm summers nigh You were sitting on your doorstep
As I sat down, you started to talk
You said There's only so much this girl can give
You eyes swelled up and tear drop hit the street

Dad is the strongest man around I bet
Thirteen brothers and sisters he was Born in the early fall
Never missed a day He worked on the old grain mills
He did his best to feed his family

They used to call him a junk yard dog
Ken black would never turn is back
to any man who needed helping hand
They used to call him a junk yard dog
Ken black would never judge a man
he did his best to always understand

His old man had a funny way to show his love
William was the town drunk drink never left his hand
He used to chase little Ken with a butcher knife
Tried to hang the kids in the barn and burn the whole place down

But the good people of the town stepped in to stop the storm
They gave them food and shelter, grew into a man
Swore he'd never be the same, he'w bring his kids up right
Now it's hard to watch as the time is running out
