In Color
I said, "Grandpa, what's this picture here?
It's all black and white; it ain't real clear
Is that you there?" He said, "Yeah, I was eleven
And times were tough, back in '35
That's me and Uncle Joe just tryin' to survive
A cotton farm in the Great Depression

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple o' kids just tryin' to save each other
You should've seen it in color

This one here was taken overseas
In the middle o' hell, 1943
In the winter time, you can almost see my breath
That was my tail gunner, ol' Johnny McGee
He was a high school teacher from New Orleans
And he had my back, right through the day we left

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple o' kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

Yeah, a picture's worth a thousand words
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color

This one is my favorite one
This is me and grandma in the summer sun
All dressed up the day we said our vows
You can't tell it here, but it was hot that June
That rose was red and her eyes were blue
And just look at that smile; I was so proud

That's the story of my life
Right there in black and white"

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple o' kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color

Yeah, a picture's worth a thousand words
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered
You should've seen it in color

And if it looks like we were scared to death
Like a couple o' kids just trying to save each other
You should've seen it in color
