I remember mama swinging that screen door open bringing a cold glass of sweet tea for daddy's hand
A hard day's work and family restin', me and him and brother gettin' hungry for what's cookin' in mama's pan
After supper out there pickin' singin' hymns into the night. That's the kind of simple livin' I've been chasin' all my life

[Chorus:]
There ain't nothin' any better than love, faith and family together in this world of crazy weather - it's the safest place to ride out any storm -
Got to get back to the front porch

I remember lookin' back seein' daddy wave as I was leavin', that "lord, help him" tear in mama's eyes. I went from climbin' trees to climbin' ladders, tryin' to shine, tryin' to matter, only left me less than satisfied.
Now I don't have a front porch like my mom and daddy did and I'm finding it's a way of life no matter where you live.

(Repeat chorus) x2

Got to get back to the front porch
I'm gonna sing, I'm gonna smile
Gonna rest for a little while
Gotta get back to the front porch

Got to get back to the front porch
I'm gonna sing, I'm gonna smile
Gonna rest for a little while
Gotta get back to the front porch

Not gonna worry anymore
Have a talk with my lord
Got to get back to the front porch

Hold my wife and show my kids
This is the only way to live

Got to get back to the front porch
Back to the front porch
