NASHVILLE

We were raised up right

Yea, all of us kids

Mom and dad worked hard

To make sure we did

All the things we were taught

And to stay in school

If we got in trouble

Well, that ain’t cool

 

So we did our best

To make ‘em both proud

Passin’ all those tests

And in church sang loud

Yea, momma saw in us

What we never did see

‘Til the day daddy died

It was emotionally(eeee)

 

Oh, momma don’t worry

I’m a writin’ these songs

And one day it’ll come

And you can sing along

And I’ll send you to the places

You and daddy didn’t go

I know you’ll be proud

When that row has been hoed

So, momma don’t you worry none

I’m gonna take care of you….

 

Well, I made through high school

And college too,

Got a real nice job

And good money to boot

Now I’m a sittin’ at night

Writing out these songs

Prayin’ Nashville will sing ‘em

Way before too long

 

(Slow down the tempo)

Cause I feel like I got something to prove…

And I wanna  make you proud of me too….

I want daddy lookin’ down from above….

Knowin’ he did the right thing___ with his love…

 

(Tempo back up to normal)

Oh, momma don’t worry

I’m a writin’ these songs

And one day it’ll come

And you can sing along

And I’ll send to the places

You and daddy didn’t go

I know you’ll be proud

When that row has been hoed

So, momma don’t you worry none

I’m gonna take care of you….

 

As we’re drivin’ to the airport

It occurs to me

That we’re going to the places

You always wanted to see

And we know that daddy’s with us

Every step of the way

‘Cause we got Nashville singin’ songs

Like this one everyday……

 

Oh, momma don’t worry

I’m a writin’ these songs

And one day it’ll come

And you can sing along

And I’ll send to the places

You and daddy didn’t go

I know you’ll be proud

When that row has been hoed

So, momma don’t you worry none

I’m gonna take care of you….

Yea, momma I love ya

And I still love my daddy too…….
