lyrics

Hired help boy without any pay
Farm another purple Michigan day
Memorize the Midwest neighborhood
Cornsilk feels like Livengood

Mustered out as a Merchant Marine
Get a good haircut and keep things clean
German stock says a German should
Look out for an American Livengood

Livengood lad button up your shirt
Up by the bootstraps up from the dirt
All the pretty horses knew that you’d
Be gunning for a life of Livengood

Four young babes from the postwar boom
Growing up good in the Livengood room
Family spreads as a family would
Eight grandkids for a Livengood

Four square walls and a roof up above
Sell another house for your childrens’ love
Sell it from the lake, sell it from the wood
All in the name of Livengood

Livengood lad button up your shirt
Up by the bootstraps up from the dirt
All the pretty horses knew that you’d
Be gunning for a life of Livengood

Bolo tie by the bedstand lamp
Hammerhead house for another camp
Keep it in the toolbox guard the wood
Build a home for Livengood

Livengood lad button up your shirt
Up by the bootstraps up from the dirt
All the pretty horses knew that you’d
Be gunning for a life of Livengood
