Rock Bottom is a Solid Place to StartPDF
Words and Music by Dennis Dougherty & Joe LaMay

Don't come to me for answers when this world gets you down
Me, I'm just a working man - I got both feet on the ground
I measure out what's needed in this life of mine
I focus on the details according to design

Let's talk about a hammer - or how to read a plan
My life is written in the scars you see on these old hands
And when you rebuild something that the storms have torn apart
Rock Bottom is a solid place to start

You see me cutting lumber or driving survey stakes
I know just what I'm doing, and I rarely make mistakes
That's cause I made 'em years ago, way before your time
You bend some nails, break some bones, before you reach your prime

Don't try to swing your hammer just the way I do
Find a rhythm all your own deep inside of you
When it's time to build a house of your very own
There's nothing wrong with starting out down on solid stone

Let's talk about a hammer - or how to read a plan
My life is written in the scars you see on these old hands
And when you rebuild something that the storms have torn apart
Rock Bottom is a solid place, sometimes it's the only place
Rock Bottom is a solid place to start
