I liked the old paths when Moms were at home. Dads were at work. Brothers went into the army. And sisters got married BEFORE having children!

Crime did not pay; Hard work did, And people knew the difference.

Moms could cook; Dads would work; Children would behave.

Husbands were loving; Wives were supportive, And children were polite.

Women wore the jewelry, And Men wore the pants.

Women looked like ladies; Men looked like gentlemen, And children looked decent.

People loved the truth And hated a lie.

They came to church to get IN, Not to get OUT!

Hymns sounded Godly; Sermons sounded helpful; Rejoicing sounded normal, And crying sounded sincere.

Cursing was wicked; Drugs were for illness.

The flag was honored; America was beautiful, And God was welcome!

We read the Bible in public; Prayed in school; And preached from house to house.

To be called an American was worth dying for; To be called an American was worth living for; To be called a traitor was a shame!

I still like the old paths the best!
