Way Back home where the cypress grew
In a clapboard shack on the black bayou
Live a woman and a man that I call Mom and Dad
And Times were hard and times were tough
We barely had nothing' but we didn't need much
Except for the love of a woman and a man

Daddy worked his fingers to the bone
But I know my momma was the reason he was strong

[Chorus]
Everybody knows if the cold wind blows
The seeds don't sprout and the crops won't grow
Even though you've done the best you can

And when you're living in a house that you don't own And the money in the bank is almost gone
The only thing in life I know that stands
Is the love between a woman and a man

Well, I grew up working like my daddy did
Broke the land with my hands and the money rolled in
But it wasn't enough and I did not understand
You see, the only thing that matters money can't buy
And when it gets down the bottom line
It's the love you find between a woman and a man

Everything Daddy said to me was true
Cause my life was not complete until I found you

[Chorus: x2]

Only thing in life that stands
Is the love between a woman and a man
