My daddy was a breakman on a high ball traveling train
And mama she raised four little children and our family had a good name
And papa and mama wanted all for us they never had
Big brother, little brother, sister too
No they didn't turn out half bad, 'cept me
I'm the black sheep of the family

Big brother went to college and became a doctor man
I guess he makes about a million dollars a year
Off of folks home insurance plans
He's got a big long mercedes bends and a house overlooking the town
He sits in his jacuzzi and watches the sun go down
And he feels real sorry for me, I'm the black sheep of the family

(Chorus:)
Yeah, I drive me a big ol' semi-truck,
I'm making payments on a two-room shack
My wife she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my papa said to my mama
When he got off a high-ball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dog and teach my children to pray.

Little sister married a banker, yeah, and he owns a country club
He bought her a big ol' racing horse and a funny looking little dog
He buys her big rings of diamonds and a brand new Japanese yacht
And they like to get together and talk about all the things they got
But they never mention me, I'm the black sheep of the family

(Chorus:)
I'm saying woman, wake me up early
I'm making payments on a two-room shack
My wife she waits on tables and at night she rubs my back
And I tell her what my papa said to my mama
When he got off a high-ball train
Wake me up early, be good to my dog and teach my children to pray.
