Lyrics:
Pot luck supper and BBQ
Cooler full of beer, one for sodas too
Us kids chasing fire flies with no shoes 
Saturday sundown

Mama hollering ‘ya'll wash up’ 
Cleaning that plate with your cornbread crust
Don't drink from Daddy’s dixie cup 
Ah guitars are coming out

Those ceder planks rattled and moaned,
Rocked and rolled to a country song
On a couple sunburst flat tops and a hand me down mandolin
Sometimes they had the chords half wrong 
We laughed and cried, sang along
Family friends, harmony goose bumps on my skin
Can't put a price on what those nights were worth
It was the greatest, greatest show on Earth

Some sang low some high and lonesome
Will the circle be unbroken 
Grab a part if you know one
Or clap along instead

Son, if you wanna touch the guitar ask
Sisters asleep in aunt Kate’s lap
I'd shake it like Elvis, make em' laugh 
before I went to bed

Those ceder planks rattled and moaned,
Rocked and rolled to a country song
On a couple sunburst flat tops and a hand me down mandolin
Sometimes they had the chords half wrong 
We laughed and cried, sang along
Family friends harmony, goose bumps on my skin
You can't put a price on what those nights were worth
It was the greatest, greatest show on Earth

Take a little a break, talk a little fishing
Let the crickets sing the intermission
I'd drift off to dreamland 
as they. d fire it up again

Those ceder planks rattled and moaned,
Rocked and rolled to a country song
On a couple sunburst flat tops and a hand me down mandolin
Sometimes they had the chords half wrong 
We laughed and cried, sang along
Family friends harmony, goose bumps on my skin
You can't put a price on what those nights were worth
It was the greatest, greatest show on Earth
