Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

First Family  Rich Mullins

[D]My folks they were always the first [G/D]family [A/D]to arr[D]ive
With [Em7/sus4]seven people jam[D/F#]med into a car[G2] that seated fi[A7/sus4]ve       [A7]
There was [D]one bathroom to bathe and shave in, [G/D]six of us s[A/D]tood in li[D]ne
And[Em7/sus4] hot water for[D/F#] only three but [G2]we all did just [A7/sus4]fine
[G2]Talk about your [D/F#]miracles,[Em7] talk [A7]about your fa[D]ith [Em7/sus4]         [D/F#]
[G]My dad he could [D/F#]make things grow out of[E7sus] India[E7]na c[A7/sus4]lay      [A7]
[G2]Mom could make a [D/F#]gourmet meal out of [Em7]just cornbr[A]ead and b[Bm]eans
And they w[Em7]orked to give faith [D2/F#]hands and feet
And s[G]omehow[A7/sus4] gave it win[D]gs    [Dsus]      [G/D]      [D2/A]      [A7]
I can still hear my dad cussin', he's working late out in the barn
The spring planting's a coming and the tractors just won't run
Mom she's done the laundry, I can see it waving on the line
Now they've stayed together through the pain, the strain of those times
[D/C#]   And [Bm]now they've raised five c[F#m]hildren, one w[G]inter they lost a s[D]on [F#m/C#]
But the [Bm]pain didn't leave them [F#m]crippled
And the [Em7]scars have [E7/G#]made them [A7/sus4]strong    [A7]
[G]Never picture [D/F#]perfect, just a p[Em7]lain man [A7]and his w[Bm]ife
Who [Em7]somehow knew the[D2/F#] value of hard w[G2]ork, good l[Em]ove, and real [A7/sus4]life     [G/A]     [A]
