Corey Smith - Together Lyrics

Lord I wish that you could take me
Back to 1983
Before my folks untied the knot that bound our home
And busted up the family tree

Wed get up early every Sunday
Pile into my grandaddys van
Head over to the steeple three generations in a pew
And I couldnt wait until the alter call began

Together wed all stand and sing along
Wed do the gospel Mawmaw taught us every song
When it was over wed go have a Sunday meal
The preachers call on Brother Bill hed bless the food
And wed all share in it together

Lord I wish that you could take me
Back to those Raven county hills
Wed head up to Black Rock Mountain for a family affair
Throw some hot dogs and burgers on the grill

Id pull up a chair beside my Mama
Listen to her brag on all us kids
To this day I cant believe how proud that woman was
After all of the crazy things we did
Together wed all enjoy the feud
Take in the laughter, let it heal our blues
I was barely 18, but even then I understood
There was power in the blood that kept us hangin in
Holdin on together

Therell be a wedding or a funeral
Every year or so
Well see the familiar faces
Sayin oh aint it a shame we dont get together anymore
Cept at these awkward places
Yeah the sanctuaries and the fellowship hall have really become a drag

Now everybodys gettin older
Weve all gone our separate ways
But Im tired of the excuses and Ive made up my mind
Were meetin up at my house this comin Saturday

Ill get some barbecue and light beer
Sweet tea and kool-aid for the little ones
We put lawn chairs in the backyard
Sit and catch up on lost times
Watch the kids runnin round dont it sound like fun

Together same blood within our veins
A new generation to proudly share our family name
Well raise a bottle to the ones who came before
The ones who aint with us anymore
Lord, I bet theyre happy knowin
Were all here together
When its over well all say a long good-bye
Oh baby sitster dont you cry it wont until
Well all be together
