White Lightning Hit The Family Tree

Chris Young

 G
 It was the thirty-first gatherin' of the Thompsons, Jones and Smiths
 D
THere were tables full of chicken, taters, collard greens and grits
 G
Well it all took place at Hatie Lake State Park
 C
 Volleyball, fishin, badminton, yard darts
 A7D
Aunt Irene said she'd never seens a turnout like this

 G
 It started with handshakes and Lordy how the babies have grown
 D
As the sun got hotter, the day got to draggin' along
 G
saw Uncle Gene coming back from his car
 C
With something clear as water in a mason jar
 GDG
The lemonade got hearty and Lord the party was on

CHORUS:
 CF
That ol' boom box got louder and louder
 G
 Actin' civilized didn't seem to matter
 CD
Everybody got to showin' their hiney includin' me
 G
Lord I'd never known Granny to take her a sip
 C
But the words were slurring comin' offa her lips
 GDG
And it dawned on me, white lightnin' hit the family tree

 G
 Cousin Johnny was a Gator, Jimmy was a UT fan
 D
And that football talk was quickly gettin' out of hand
 G
Granny told Uncle Dave that she hated his guts
 C
Got right up in his face and said your whole fam damily's nuts
 GDG
Chicken legs got to flyin' and the whoop started hittin' the fan

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
 FC
That ol' park ranger jumped out of his car
 G/
Said listen here folks, it's gone a little too far
 FC
 Tear it all down, pack it all up
 D7
 Call it quits while there's still a little love

SOLO

 G
Yeah I'd never known Granny to take her a sip
 C
But the words were slurrin' right offa her lips
 GDG
And it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree
 GDG
Yeah it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree
 G
 Oh, but they had a good time man
 G
 Take it on ya'll
