Family Pictures

[C]
The rain came down
            [F]             [C]
And the water came up 
                                  [G]                              
We tried to save some of our stuff
[C]
It was washing away
                 [F].       [C]
More than dirt and debris
                                      [G]
The river took our memories

We saved the camper
and my old guitar
We moved the truck
And parked the car
But it came so fast
That we never had a chance 
We didn't save our family pictures

                   [Am]
There was a picture of my daddy
            [Em]
Back in World War 2
      [F].                                         [C]
My brother's candy apple red Chevy Malibu
     [Am].                            [Em]
A grade school picture from '68
[F].                  [G].         [C]
These were our family pictures

I took the family
To the church downtown
We said a prayer
And they laid us down
When the morning came 
We went back to see
The remnants of our history

There was mud and water
Left from the flood
Some folks were still searching
For those they loved
Should we want to rebuild
FEMA will help
But they can't replace our family pictures

There was a picture of my mother
Like a movie queen
My sisters my brothers 
Me at thirteen
The old home place
The bridge that washed away
These were our family pictures

As the dark clouds rolled out
The blue skies came in
We try to rebuild our house again
Through our sweat and tears
Our hope grew strong
Then we took a family picture
These are our family pictures

    My Sweet Baby & Gravity
    Sixty-five years around the sun 
     It's been a blast and a whole lot of fun 
    But now I'm burnt from my head to my toes 
    There's are times I want to let go 
     Out of this orbit into space 
    Leave behind the human race 
    How I've kept my sanity 
     My sweet baby and gravity 
    Thirty years ago I fell head over heals 
    It took me by surprise to feel what I feel 
    It wasn't her blues eyes or her smile 
    It was the heart of the matter that drove me wild 
    Like a bullet from an old handgun 
    Ringed through the neighborhood woke everyone 
    Hit the mark brought me to my knees 
    My sweet baby and gravity 
     Bridge
    If I could let go and float away 
    Break the tether of yesterday 
    I'd missed the warmth of her sweet love 
    My tears would fall like rain from above 
    Out in Hollywood they just don't care 
    They swap their partners like underwear 
    And there's folks who like to settle down 
    But real true love ain't easily found 
    It's a mystery how lovers meet 
    Coincidence or destiny Caught up in the galaxy 
    Of my sweet baby and gravity
