You were my rock between those hard places

Verse    
When money was tight
and there wasn't much light,
at the end of the tunnel, I'd cry,
Verse  
God never paid the rent,
but every dime,seemed heaven sent,
and somehow we got by,  
Verse  
took a piece of my soul,
when they stopped mining coal,
down in East Texas,  
Verse  
the Devil on our shoulders,
felt like sandstone Boulders,
but we never let him vex us,  
Chorus  
We lived on baked beans,
and out of suit cases,
we shopped in Walmart,  
they shopped in Maceys,  
wanted to wipe the smirks,
of their faces,  
'cause I knew they weren't fit,  
to tie up your laces,
you had real class, no heirs and graces,
and you were my rock,
between those hard places,  
Verse  
You weren't like the girls,
craving diamonds and pearls,
and the latest Versace dress,
Verse  
you snubbed your best friend,
for flaunting her 'benz',  
who the hell was she trying to impress?  
Verse  
the champagne lifestyle's nice,
but you can't put love on ice,
'less you want your heart to freeze,  
Verse  
' cause money won't buy you love,  
or the stars above,
or the sweet smell of a mountain breeze,
Bridge
your faith was unshakeable,
your spirit unbreakable,
you kept me alive,
and if it all falls apart again,
it might break my heart the same,
but I know we would survive,
Chorus
'cause we lived on baked beans,  
and out of suit cases,
we shopped in Walmart,
they shopped in Maceys,
so wanted to wipe the smirks,
of their faces,  
' cause I knew they weren't fit,  
to tie up your laces,
you had real class, no airs and graces,  
and you were my rock,
between those hard places.
