Dirty Shirt Lyrics

by Ray Scott

Ronnie wasn't much on the thought of a coat and tie
'Cause they ain't much good to a man
Wearin' steel-toed boots from eight to five
He's been known to pop the top on a brew
He came off a little rough sometimes, but folks that know him knew

If you can look past a dirty shirt
See beyond greasy hands
You'll find a heart hard at work
In a damn good man

Army green seemed to suit him more than college life
Well, that's what his old man did and he turned out alright
He never got him that great big house or fancy car
But ya'll, it ain't the neighborhood you're in, it's the neighbor that you are

And if you can look past a dirty shirt
See beyond greasy hands
You'll find a heart hard at work
In a damn good man

He's got scars and an angel on his arm, he got in Saigon in '65
To most folks he ain't nothin' more
Than the ol' boy on the corner changin' tires

But if you look past a dirty shirt
See beyond the greasy hands
You're gonna find a heart hard at work

Yeah, if you can look past a dirty shirt
See beyond greasy hands
You'll find a heart hard at work
In a damn good man

Kinda like my Dad
