Lyrics

I remember Momma trying to teach me wrong from right
Preachig that Golden Rule until I got it right
And I did my best I tried to walk that narrow road
But how was I to know

I'd be in high school in the back seat of that car
Behind passion painted windows and I'd never been that far
Now "Do unto others as you'd have them do to you,"
Left me so confused

There I was between black and white
It used to be so easy telling wrong from right
And I don't know when but somewhere along the way
My black and white turned gray

I learned the hard way that cheaters never win
That barroom lesson left 12 stiches on my chin
Now I pay my taxes but they test my honesty
When those politicians don't live and spend like me

Here I am between black and white
It used to be so easy telling wrong from right
And I don't know when but somewhere along the way
My black and white turned gray

When I was younger they taught me turn the other cheek
It's a bigger man who walks away and it won't mean you're weak
But in this world we live where bombs and bullets fly
Justice and wisdom just don't see eye to eye

Here we are between black and white
It used to be so easy telling wrong from right
And I don't know when but somewhere along the way
My black and white turned gray
