I love that stanza:
“The older I get,
The more it syncs in,
I wouldn’t be who I am,
If not for where I’ve been.”

Better Memories

Written by Marvin Adcock

We were skinny towhead kids in Louisiana
Livin’ not to far from the Arkansas line
Barefoot walkin’ hot blacktop with a quarter for a soda
From the farm to town in the summertime

Sunday dinner always centered around the family
In the shotgun house out in the red dirt pines
Grandma scoldin’ grandpa for teasin’ us and bein’ ornery
It’s like a Kodak moment in my mind

The older I get, the more it sinks in
I wouldn’t be who I am if not for where I’ve been
Every stage of every age rollin’ down life’s road
I swear there’ll never be better memories than those

I remember tiny fingers holdin’ tight
From a little hand graspin’ on to mine
It was like the Lord had pulled a chord turnin’ on the light
Puttin’ my priorities in line

The older I get, the more it sinks in
I wouldn’t be who I am if not for where I’ve been
Every stage of every age rollin’ down life’s road
I swear there’ll never be better memories than those

Sometimes I think I’d like to have those moments back
But I wouldn’t trade those days for where I’m at

Cause the older I get, the more it sinks in
I wouldn’t be who I am if not for where I’ve been
Every stage of every age rollin’ down life’s road
I swear there’ll never be better memories than those...Lord knows
How could there every be better memories than those
