Steve Fisher
A Boy’s Life in Texas
(Waterbug)

“Fisher’s art is like light
hitting the surface of a river…this is
music that takes its time.” – Zassafras Music News

The CD debut from the pride of Longview, Texas. A generous selection
of 15 country/folk songs reveals a songmaker of depth, charm, and the
best kind of simplicity. There is humor here-“Aunt Martha” is a dear
old lady who’s taken up gambling, and “Nobody Home” portrays a family
too contented with their lives to answer the phone. There’s an ironic
nostalgia in “Childhood Days” and “A Girl Like That.” “The
Unbeliever” and “Candle in Your Hand” reflect a search for and
struggle with faith. Steve Fisher plays an old sunburst Martin Guitar
with skill, and sings right with it.

Once upon a time I read
Somewhere in a story
A wise man said,
a fool in love
Is a fool in all his glory…

A Boy’s Life in Texas

©1991 by Steve Fisher


Picture a boy’s life in Texas

That’s me there with the family on the farm

Every day it was milk and eggs for breakfast

An old red tractor in the barn

Old red tractor in the barn

Went swimmin’ in the river

Shot snakes down on Hawkin’s creek

Took my whippin’s from my momma

Went to church three times a week

Went to church three times a week

Went barefoot every summer

Played in the little league

Grew melons in the garden

Never swallowed a seed

Never swallowed a seed

Every night as I laid me down to sleep

I’d pray the Lord my little soul to keep

I’d pray the Lord He might watch over me

I’d pray the Lord He might watch over me

Had a big black German Shepherd

With papers and a pedigree

She got hit out on the highway

Buried behind the house beneath a tree

Buried behind the house beneath a tree

Burglars came one Sunday mornin’

While the family was away

Stole a shotgun and a TV

And my new guitar I’s just learnin’ to play

And my new guitar I’s just learnin’ to play

Every night as I laid me down to sleep

I’d pray the Lord my little soul to keep

I’d pray the Lord He might watch over me

I’d pray the Lord He might watch over me

So picture a boy’s life in Texas

That’s me there with the family on the farm

Every day it was milk and eggs for breakfast

An old red tractor in the barn

Old red tractor in the barn

Old red tractor in the barn
