Sweet Family Love

(c)2009 Gail King/Letha Allen


I was never one
To covet diamonds or pearls
Or material trappings
That consume this ole world
I find daily salvation
In the sweet Lord above
And my inspiration
From sweet family love

(Chorus)
That house on a hill
Can crumble and fall
Old Mother Nature
Can come claim it all
These earthly treasures
Can be taken away
But sweet family love
Will always stay

I don't need bright lights
Spelling out my name
I don't need lots of money
Fancy titles or fame
For my peace of mind
I need the good Lord above
And being surrounded
By sweet family love

(Chorus)
That house on a hill
Can crumble and fall
Old Mother Nature
Can come claim it all
These earthly treasures
Can be taken away
But sweet family love
Will always stay

Wherever you travel
Wherever you roam
Without sweet family love
No place will seem like home

(Chorus)
That house on a hill
Can crumble and fall
Old Mother Nature
Can come claim it all
These earthly treasures
Can be taken away
But sweet family love
Will always stay

(Repeat chorus)

Oh, sweet family love...
Will always stay

Nicely done! Letha's singing reminds me somewhat of the amazing Helen Schneyer.

Wow! Now all they need is for Big and Rich to arrange it, so as to give it a genuine traditional country flavor!

To come back to reality: I love it when someone can write something new that sounds like it has endured for generations. And what a voice and delivery!
