Written by Stewart Acuff
Worried about the house, the paycheck, the next gig
Then my kids come home from school in this tropical heat in South Georgia
Son wants to play basketball in this late summer heat
So the old man wraps his no-good knee
And the son and his old man hit the sun soaked asphalt playground
And left the worried blues at the hoop.
