Fourth ... Family Tree

Family Tree © Roseriversongs 2005 David Schipper

Take a little walk right back in time
Feel the wind cool the warm sunshine
Grab the hand of the one you love
Feel the love lookin from above

Just a branch in the family tree
They’re just folk like you & me
Sim’lar eyes, ears, hands & weight
We’re all linked to a common faith

Promenade to a dosey do
Family history we ought to know
Cowboy boots and petticoats
Dancin to the old timey notes


In a farm house out of town
Friends all meet & gather round
Once a year in mid-July
They all travel far & wide

Sing & dance and have some fun
Exactly why they always come
They all leave with memories
Branches of a family tree

Instrumental based on verse
End with the first verse

Notes:... ok this one started while driving back from Manitowoc. Lori and Dustin asleep in the car... I don't remember if I did the old jotting notes while driving; maybe. Lynn and Lori laughed at one part and had me change it (yes for the better) and Tim & Paula were schnuckered into adding a chorus behind me after church practice one night. This song has been entered in contests but has never one; they were wrong, weren't they?

Here's an impromptu video.
