Water The Family Tree Lyrics

Artist: Mel Tillis
Album: The Arms Of A Fool / Commercial Affection

Mama's workin' now I'm playing games it's sunny outside but I don't care if it rains
Cause soon she'll be back home where I want her to be
And it's hard to add one and one and make it three
Daddy went away some time ago and though it seems so long I love him so
Mama said that daddy won't be back soon
And I'm a gettin' new shoes when they fix mama's hair at noon
Mom try so hard that I can see with half full heart she waters the family tree
[ steel ]
Now here I stand my face pressed to the glass
As thoughts of tender years with mom go past
A cry rings in my heart the world's a lie as I stand and worship my first born tonight
Mom tried so hard now accept to me
And with the lovin' heart we water the family tree
Now it stands real tall and straight for all to see
And the leaves of love grow big on the family tree
Yes the leaves of love grow big on the family tree
