Lyrics

Saints and Scoundrels By Andy Budd - Copyright 2006 ? All Rights Reserved

I was sitting out on the porch reflecting on my younger days
Countin' my blessin's - to this day I'm still amazed.
At all the debts I owe, to those I know I can't repay
All those saints and scoundrels that helped me find my way.

My Dad shipped out to Vietnam, when I was only eight
My best friend's daddy, Glenn, was there to take the Major's place
He was there to help my mom with me and keep a young boy straight
Taught me how to use a pocket knife, and ?play second base

Chorus1
Some were saints and some were scoundrels, taught me virtue & vice
Some gave opportunity, some just gave advice
The how to's and what-not-to's, lessons learned along the way
From all those saints & scoundrels , these are debts to be repaid

When I was just sixteen my dad shipped overseas
The scoundrel livin' across the street, shared his expertise
I learned how to fix a car and ?.use pro-fan-it-y
How to talk to girls & buy beer and booze without a fake ID

There's been a lot of men with different histories
Who shared their life's experience and never charged a fee
Shared the wisdom of their years so un-selfish-ly
Some saints and a few scoundrels who gave their time to me

Bridge :
This song would last a lifetime, if I gave every man his due
So, If you know me fairly well, I wrote this song for you. And when
the good lord lays me down I'd like the stone to say..
"Here's lies a man who made a difference, and all his debts are paid."

Chorus2:
Some were saints and some were scoundrels, Most were ordinary men
Who one time or another were there to take me in
The how to's and what-not-to's, lessons learned along the way
From all those saints & scoundrels , these are debts to be repaid

Tag:
And when they put me in the ground, I hope that they will say
"He was a man who made a difference and all his debts are paid."
