I thought it was:
it's cornbread and chicken
Where I come from a lotta front porch sittin'
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'

or maybe:
In the town where I was raised
The clock ticks and the cattle graze
Time passed with Amazing Grace

or was it:
I said I'm from the front pew of a wooden white church
The courthouse clock it still dont work
Where a man's word means everything
Where moms and dads were high school flings
Gave their children grandmothers maiden name

I don't know how they can say that when there are so many people like me with heritage from a dozen+ european countries.

Guess my name is english so I'd be considered english.

I thought this was going to be about that cool show on the Nat Geo channel. That was an eye opener (re: origins based on genetic markers in mitochondrial DNA).
