Grace
   ------The Bacon Brothers

Written by Kevin Bacon and Michael Bacon

"A song about thanksgiving - not the holiday, just the act of giving thanks." KB

Bobby's lyin' round like the wakin' dead
He's got a big black cloud hangin' over his head
I want to get him up, get him out the door
I'd like to get him drunk, but he don't drink no more
He says, "Oh, buddy, I really thought she was the one
Tell me what happened, 'cause we were havin' so much fun."

Some of us will live in love, and some will watch love die
There but for the grace of you, go I
Girl but for the grace of you, go I

Teddy married Betty, when they were still in school
And he never was her first choice, she never was his fool
50 years together, that was somethin' less than bliss
Rarely did they tell the truth and rarely did they kiss
Pass the fish sticks, and tell me what you did today
And the clock ticks, they're runnin' out of things to say

I've seen ashes in the wind, and I've never seen him cry
There but for the grace of you, go I
Girl but for the grace of you, go I

Off we go in a cloud of dust, let the chips fall where they must
Girl you turned my life around, in the time it takes a heart to pound

Some of us will live in love, and some will watch love die
There but for the grace of you, go I
Girl but for the grace of you, go I
