IT WASN'T HIS CHILD
(Words & Music by Donald R. Ewing II)

He was her man, she was his wife,
And late one winter night
He knelt by her as she gave birth,
But it wasn't his child, it wasn't his child.

Yet still he took him as his own,
And as he watched him grow
It brought him joy, he loved that boy,
But it wasn't his child, it wasn't his child.

But like a father he was strong and kind and good
And I believe he did his best.
It wasn't easy for him, but he did all he could.
His son was different from the rest -
It wasn't his child, it wasn't his child

And when the boy became a man
He took his father's hand,
And soon the world all know why
It wasn't his child, it wasn't his child.

And like His Father He was strong and kind and good,
And I believe He did his best,
It wasn't easy for Him but He did all he could.
He grew up with His hands in wood,
And He died with His hands in wood.
He was God's child, He was God's child

He was her man, she was his wife,
And late one winter night
He knelt by her as she gave birth,
But it wasn't his child, it wasn't his child.

The group Sawyer Brown also recorded the song.

Donald "Skip" Ewing's website suggests that either he may have collaborated with Trisha Yearwood in recording the song or that she may have been a co-writer of the song.

Thanks, Genie.

I was in line at the drugstore one day when two men started chatting.

1. "I'm married to _________ now."

2. "Didn't she mumble mumble mumble?"

3.   "Yes, but I love it like my own!"

That's true humanity for you. The spirit of Joseph.
