SHOOTER JENNINGS lyrics - Family Man

Southern Family Anthem

Original and similar lyrics
[Verse:] Granny's got a secret that she's dyin' to hide, two cousins got married on our daddy's side. They're a dark mass hangin' from our family tree. Instead of whiskey, Uncle Albert drank Kerosene. [Chorus:] We're sullen by God, our name is mud. We got eachother's backs, 'cos we got the same blood. Let the stock market crash, we'll always be free. We may be trash, but we're a family. We may be trash, but we're a family. [Verse:] Well the whole town knows Cousin Billy is gay. All the sideways stares finally made him move away. Brother Daryl ain't daddy's and everybody know, But we can't tell Daddy cuz he might explode. [Chorus:] We're sullen by God, our name is mud. We got eachother's backs, 'cos we got the same blood. Let the stock market crash, we'll always be free. We may be trash, but we're a family. We may be trash, but we're a family. [Verse:] Nephew Jimmy killed a man, got a life in a cell. His brother Payne is singin' his way through hell. 'Cos Mama's on crank, Daddy's got Hep-C, Yeah, We all die together, we're a family. [Chorus:] We're sullen by God, our name is mud. We got eachother's backs, 'cos we got the same blood. Let the stock market crash, 'cos we'll always be free. We may be trash, but we're a family. We may be trash, but we're a family. We may be trash, but we're a family.

Family Secret

ALANNAH MYLES "A-lan-nah"
Sweet breeze, blowin' through a summer dress Seen from a window above Captured in the eyes of love Shivers, in the cool forbidden dawn Where the Iris and Jasmin run wild She was young and he was a child He vanished like July Some folks, they wondered why But old money has its friends Ain't it funny how the truth will bend It's the family secret, don't pass it on Daddy's angel 'til something went wrong It's the family secret of her mystery... Whispers, how they sound like raindrops Hush now we'll make it alright She's framed by the front porch light Uuuhuh, suspicion, raising up like dragonflies They say there's a story to tell Buried in the family well Now the congregation prays Save us from our evil ways But old money has its friends Ain't it funny how the truth will bend It's the family secret, it's the family secret, don't pass it on Daddy's angel 'til something went wrong It's the family secret, just let it be I know the secret of her mystery... It's the family secret, it's the family secret It's the family secret, don't pass it on Daddy's angel 'til something went wrong It's the family secret, just let it be I know the secret to her mystery Keep it in the family now, behind closed doors Past the rows of cypress trees, through the Spanish moss Those old stone walls It's the family secret, it's the family secret

Patches

JERRY REED "The Man With The Golden Thumb"
I was born and raised down in Alabama On a farm way back up in the woods I was so ragged that folks used to call me Patches Papa used to tease me about it 'Cause deep down inside he was hurt 'Cause he'd done all he could My papa was a great old man I can see him with a shovel in his hands, see Education he never had He did wonders when the times got bad The little money from the crops he raised Barely paid the bills we made For, life had kick him down to the ground When he tried to get up Life would kick him back down One day Papa called me to his dyin' bed Put his hands on my shoulders And in his tears he said He said, Patches I'm dependin' on you, son To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you Two days later Papa passed away, and I became a man that day So I told Mama I was gonna quit school, but She said that was Daddy's strictest rule So ev'ry mornin' 'fore I went to school I fed the chickens and I chopped wood too Sometimes I felt that I couldn't go on I wanted to leave, just run away from home But I would remember what my daddy said With tears in his eyes on his dyin' bed He said, Patches I'm dependin' on you, son I tried to do my best It's up to you to do the rest Then one day a strong rain came And washed all the crops away And at the age of 13 I thought I was carryin' the weight of the Whole world on my shoulders And you know, Mama knew What I was goin' through, 'cause Ev'ry day I had to work the fields 'Cause that's the only way we got our meals You see, I was the oldest of the family And ev'rybody else depended on me Ev'ry night I heard my Mama pray Lord, give him the strength to face another day So years have passed and all the kids are grown The angels took Mama to a brand new home Lord knows, people, I shedded tears But my daddy's voice kept me through the years Sing Patches, I'm dependin' on you, son To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you Oh, I can still hear Papa's voice sayin' Patches, I'm dependin' on you, son I've tried to do my best It's up to you to do the rest I can still hear Papa, what he said Patches...

Scars of The Crucifix

JEDI MIND TRICKS "Legacy Of Blood"
[Vinnie Paz] My brain's on another lever than yours You could only comprehend half of what my memory stores I only walk through the heavenly doors And never try to see the penitentiary walls I walk barefoot on the equator with the mental acumen of Bob Lazar My frame can't be explored by y'all radar My name can't be absorbed in god's quazaar So why try and stay around this hell 12 tho from all the 12 tribes in Israel They call me Ishmael, lord of the seas! I take your life quick, gone in a fucking breeze! You don't deserve to breathe, your brain thoughtless While I'll remain in the same spain fortress The pain's gorgeus, and love is torture And anyone who tell you different is a martyr [Vinnie Paz] I'm from the pits of hell Escaping from an egyptian cell I dedicate this to the saints that's doing bids in jail You fucking kids are frail, and we the purest form And the biology of magic is a gorgeous psalm My deepest thoughts are strong, and I'm unbreakable You wouldn't overstand, you're humanly incapable My appetite for blood is gruesomly is insationable And I'm a righteous thug, that's brutaly defacing you And you don't want no war, it ain't a game daddy I spit a bunch of slugs into your fucking frame daddy You just a fucking crumb, my click is hustling jums I spit a rap at you to liquify your guts and lungs But the devil made me do that Fighting for the rights of islam-arm with two gats But y'all knew that, we was coming for blood And your body the perfect specimen to put in the mud [Vinnie Paz] I civilize the savages, while you support gay marriages Evil demons and the Jesus of Nasareth I keep my blade more sharper than the cactuses I keep grenades in my parka for the pacifists And you can't lie to god, cousin You can't lie to the great master Thor, cousin It's a facade, cousin They wanna lie to you, they wanna tell you that the government is reliable They wanna tell you that islam is dangerous When everybody know the christians are the blame for this Cuz it's the truth, deal with it But you complain everytime I'm real with it I'm bout to kill critics, and then take 'em to war And teach 'em how to put their love and faith in Allah Or I'm breaking their jaw, or I take 'em to burn Cuz that's the only fucking way the pagans will learn

Dying Breed

Allison Moorer "Miss Fortune"
I take a pint of whiskey And crack open it's lid I drink the bottle empty Just like my poor daddy did I take after my family My fate's the blood in me No one grows old in this household We are a dying breed I take a red and blue one From my Mama's purse I wash 'em down with homemade wine To see what kicks in first I take after my family My fate's the blood in me No one grows old in this household We are a dying breed I take another needle Black powder and a spoon I set my sights on heaven And shoot for the moon I take after my family My fate's the blood in me No one grows old in this household We are a dying breed

Family Affair

SLY & THE FAMILY STONE
It's a family affair, it's a family affair It's a family affair, it's a family affair One child grows up to be Somebody that just loves to learn And another child grows up to be Somebody you'd just love to burn Mom loves the both of them You see it's in the blood Both kids are good to Mom 'Blood's thicker than mud' It's a family affair, it's a family affair Newlywed a year ago But you're still checking each other out Nobody wants to blow Nobody wants to be left out You can't leave, 'cause your heart is there But you can't stay, 'cause you been somewhere else! You can't cry, 'cause you'll look broke down But you're cryin' anyway 'cause you're all broke down! It's a family affair It's a family affair
