Pass It On Down

Original and similar lyrics
Teddy Gentry/Randy Owen/Will Robinson/Ronnie Rogers, 4:53 We live in the land of plenty But many things aren't plenty anymore Like the water from our sink They say's not safe to drink You gotta go and buy it at the store Now we're told there's a hole in the ozone Look what's washing on the beach And Lord, I believe, from the heavens to the seas We're bringing Mother Nature to her knees Chorus: So let's leave some blue up above us Let's leave some green on the ground It's only ours to borrow, let's save some for tomorrow Leave it and pass it on down Well there's a change taking place way on the mountains Acid rain is falling on the leaves And down in Brazil, the fires are burning still How we gonna breathe without them trees Repeat chorus There's a place where I live called the Canyon Where Daddy taught me to swim And that water, it's so pure And I'm gonna make sure Daddy's grandkids can swim there like him Now we all oughta feel just a little bit guilty When we look into the eyes of our kids 'Cause brothers it's a fact, if we take and don't put back They'll have to pay for all we did Repeat chorus (4 times) Tag: Leave it and pass it on down

Hot To Death

Everlast "Whitey Ford Sings The Blues"
We're gonna be breakin' it down (Yeah!) You gotta know the feel You gotta know the life You know what I'm sayin' (Hey!) I said what's goin' wrong You know it just ain't right Tell me who be loud When the spark ignite Now from the break daylight To the fall of the sun You gotta pick your fight It's time to choose your gun CHORUS Front to back Right to left Keep it live all night Make it hot to death Get your heart pumpin' like some crystal meth Keep it live all night Make it hot to death Well... Hey... Tell me who's your God Does he make a lotta dough I'm gonna take you higher Or to the fire below CHORUS Guns to roses Abraham to Moses Daylight exposes what the night conceals Let's break these seals And get this thing started Some be out classed Some be out smarted Some be over bound by the blindin' rays I hear the whisper in the night Get trapped in the maze See back in the days When I was juvenile I dreamed of rockin' on the mic In a brand new style Now I'm shakin' these bones Tryin' to get these shoes Outbidded major crews I'm paid crazy dues Now I'm speakin' on you They just slept on me And rumors start spreadin' Just like a disease I'll have you down on your knees Below the spot ground zero Turn brown and burn down Rome just like Nero A hero ain't nothing but a Don't make me say it again Legend Don't make me say it CHORUS That's what I'm sayin' That's what I'm sayin'...

Children Can Live (Without It)

DC TALK "Nu Thang"
I don't want another country I want ta recognize intent Of our forefathers when they wrote Precisely what they meant Taken on the form of Christian But the power is denied In God we trust only when we lust For the apple of our eye One nation under God With morals out of proportion An end result is murder Under legalized abortion (chorus) Children can live without it Who's gonna take it away? Children can live without it Maybe we'll learn someday Oh, that we'll learn, I pray A miracle of God Now looked on as a choice It's time for all His children To unify a voice With influence in our numbers And power in out prayer We must defend the children And fight for what is fair What appears to be an upset Can change its ugly course And we can do it all Through Jesus Christ our Lord (repeat chorus) (bridge) O, they can fight, but they cannot win They can scream, but none will hear them Don't ya know that our conscience will die If we take away the freedom to survive? (repeat chorus 3x)

That's What I Call Home

BLAKE SHELTON "Blake Shelton"
There's a house that's a little run down This city ain't never found It's miles and miles from a paved road That's where we grew up Seven children raised on love When life gets hard that's where we go (chorus) Daddy don't know a stranger A handshake and he's your friend Oh and Mama she's an angel She'll hold you tight till the heartache ends Just a place made of nails and wood But it's the love that makes you feel so good That's what I call That's what I call home Daddy built it with his own two hands Overlooking his grandpa's land Now through the years a lot has changed But driving up this gravel road I get that feeling in my soul I thank God some things still remain Repeat chorus Once I get myself through that old screen door The world can't touch me anymore Repeat chorus That's what I call home That's what I call home
