A young boy needs a place to sit and wait
'Cause she ain’t ever ready for the date
That girl’s daddy needs a quiet spot
To tell that boy the what’s and what nots
Someday soon he’s gonna bring her home
They’ll sit on the swing with that light bulb on
He’ll reach in the pocket of his ole blue jeans
Pull out a ring, get down on one knee

That’s why god made a front porch
Put a little creak in the screen door
Something ‘bout the sound of a g-chord
Foot tappin’ on a loose board
Moon dancin’ behind the willow tree
You can hear that bullfrog clear across the creek
That ole house gets a little warm
That’s why god made a front porch

I step over my ole dog and head to work
Put in a full day till my back hurts
As fast as this world goes ‘round and ‘round
Everybody needs a place to slow down
As my tires hit the gravel drive
The summer sun’s hangin’ on for dear life
There’s my little angel in her sun dress
Sittin’ cross-legged on the wood steps

That’s why god made a front porch
Put a little creak in the screen door
Something ‘bout the sound of a g-chord
Foot tappin’ on a loose board
Wind chimes jangle in the evening breeze
You can hear that bullfrog clear across the creek
A peaceful rain follows a thunderstorm
That’s why god made a front porch

Full moon dancin’ behind the willow tree
You can hear that bullfrog clear across the creek
Yeah, that ole house gets a little warm
That’s why god made a front porch
That’s why god made a front porch
