Verse 1:

Living on free food tickets

Water in the milk from the hole in the roof

Where the rain came through
Bb C/G
What can you do? hmm hmm

Tears from little sister

Crying 'cause she doesn't have a dress
D#
Without a patch for the party to go
Bb C/G
Oh but you know,she'll get by

She is living in the love of the common people

Smiles from the heart of a family man

Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to
C/G F
Mamma's gonna love her just as much as she can,as she can

It's a good thing you don't have bus fare

It would fall through the hole in your pocket

And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground

A walkin' to town to find a job

Trying to keep your hands warm

But the hole in your shoe let the snow come through

And the chills stay away

You take them in stride,family pride

And with whole lotta love and a warm conversation

And plenty of prayer

Making you strong,where you belong
