Verse
They say nothing much happens down Racetrack Holler
Just an old run down house without running water
The red tin roof is rusted and the weeds are getting taller
The world keeps getting bigger while it keeps looking smaller

Pre-Chorus
But oh what they can’t see

Chorus
Is front porch kisses
For six generations
Crowded Sunday dinners and summer vacations
The longer I’m gone the more I let my mind wander
Back to where nothing much happens
Down Racetrack Holler

Verse
I can still hear Grandma singing in the kitchen
Thanking the Lord for the life she was given
She didn’t have a dime but said money don’t mean living
I was too young but those old walls were listening

Pre-Chorus
And oh the stories they tell

Chorus
Front porch kisses
For six generations
Crowded Sunday dinners and summer vacations
The longer I’m gone the more I let my mind wander
Back to where nothing much happens
Down Racetrack Holler

Bridge
Sometimes it feels like
Life’s flying by
So I close my eyes
And I step back in time

Chorus
To front porch kisses
For six generations
Crowded Sunday dinners and summer vacations
The longer I’m gone the more I let my mind wander
Back to where nothing much happens
Down Racetrack Holler
