The Family

Intro: D G D G D G D G D I was raised up by the Golden Rule, D G D In an old house with a patched-up roof. A G We had a hard road but it pulled us close; D G D G D We were family. Oh that summer, when the crops all died, Was the first time I saw Daddy cry, And I heard Mama say, "What goes on here stays, In the family." Chorus: Bm Well our clothes weren't new, G That old car was used, D But we held our own. Bm G Oh you just can't buy that sense of pride, A We grew up on . . . D G D G D In the family. I remember every Sunday night, After supper, 'round the firelight. How peaceful Daddy looked As he read the Good Book . . . To the family. Some folk said we were barely making do, But we were better off than they ever knew. We never had much, But we sure had love . . . In the family. Chorus G D7 G D7 G D7
