Dolly Parton Family Lyrics

Last updated: 03/03/2005 10:00:00 AM

When it's family you forgive them for they know not what they do
When it's family you accept them cause you have no choice but to
When it's family they're a mirror of the worst and best in you
And they always put you to the test and you always try to do your best
And just pray for God to do the rest when it's family

Some are preachers some are gay some are addicts drunks and strays
But not a one is turned away when it's family
Some are lucky others ain't some are fighters other faint
Winners losers sinners saints it's all family

And when it's family you trust them and your heart's an open door
When it's family you tolerate what you'd kill others for
When it's family you love and hate and take then give some more
Somehow you justify mistakes try to find some better way
To solve the problems day to day in the family

You take the trouble as it comes and love 'em more than anyone
Good or bad or indifferent it's still family
You choose your lovers you pick your friends
Not the family that you're in
They'll be with you till the end cause it's family

And when it's family you forgive them for they know not what they do
When it's family they're a mirror of the worst and best in you
When it's family when it's family let me be all that I should be to the family
