That's Why God Made A Front Porch

That's Why God Made A Front Porch Craig Campbell, Lee Thomas Miller) 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 Chorus: 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 Chorus: 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 Chorus: 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
