Nose on the grindstone lyrics Timothy Childers

It’s a “Nose On The Grindstone”
Daddy worked like a mule mining Pike County coal
He fucked up his back and couldn’t work anymore
He said “One of these days you’ll get out of these hills
Keep your nose on the grindstone and out of the pills”
See, the ways of this world just bring you to tears
Keep the Lord in your heart, you’ll have nothing to fear
Live the best that you can and don’t lie and don’t steal
Keep your nose on the grindstone and out of the pills
Well daddy I’ve been trying, I just can’t catch a break
There’s too much in this world, I can’t seem to shake
But I remember your words, Lord, they bring me the chills
Keep your nose on the grindstone and out of the pills
Keep in mind that a man’s just as good as his word
It takes twice as long to build bridges you’ve burned
And there is hurt you can cause, time alone cannot heal
Keep your nose on the grindstone and out of the pills
Well daddy, I’ve been trying, I just can’t catch a break
There’s too much in this world, I can’t seem to shake
But I remember your words, Lord, they bring me the chills
Keep your nose on the grindstone and out of the pills
Keep your nose on the grindstone
