“We Didn’t Have Much” by Justin Moore

Justin Moore’s “We Didn’t Have Much” is yet another country song centered on an idyllic presentation of life in the backwoods, so to speak. And in it, we have the vocalist reminiscing on his youth in varying capacities. He and his family enjoyed what can be classified as a humble lifestyle. And as far as his later teenage years, as is also common in these types of narratives, it was highlighted by Justin being engaged in romantic endeavors.

But what makes “We Didn’t Have Much” different from run-of-the-mill good-ol-days’ country songs is that this one was dropped during the COVID-19 pandemic. So even though Justin did not have a hand in writing the lyrics himself, he has put forth that said event gives this track more meaning, apparently in the sense of the lockdowns being such that people were basically forced to spend more time with their close relatives, and shall we also say remember some of the more important things in life. 

Additionally, it was also such that reliance of neighbors also became a thing again during the pandemic. It should be stated that today communal spirit has been more or less lost in the hustle and bustle of the modern world. But being constrained to the house during the pandemic truly reminded Justin of the simpler days of old.

In Conclusion

And no, the lyrics themselves do not appear to allude to COVID-19 in any way, shape or form. Rather what the vocalist is stating, more or less indirectly, how priceless it was spending time with his dad, grandma, buddies and girlfriend back in the day. Despite his family not bein paid like they are now, life was beautiful. And it is the abundance of love that was shared between them which more notably defined that era. This therefore apparently makes the said era the most-edifying in the vocalist’s life.
