Sharing some lyrics
Thursday, November 22, 2012
On the Alabama CD there is a song called..Food on the Table, and I wanted to share the lyrics with you on this Thanksgiving day....
My dad was a big man with a will that was tough. He was at his best when the going was rough. He made a living for the family and never had to cheat, to keep food on the table and shoes on our feet. We sat down at the table and thanked God in prayer, cause we had plenty to eat and plenty to wear. We had patches on our britches but momma kept us neat. We had food on the table and shoes on our feet. We picked the cotton and gathered the corn, we were taught to work from the day we were born. Mom and dad and all us children worked in the summer's heat, to keep food on the table and shoes on our feet. When you sit down at the table thank God in prayer, if you've got plenty to eat and plenty to wear. If you've got patches on your britches just be sure to keep em neat. If you've got food on the table and shoes on your feet.
