Our Family  The Bellamy Brothers

written by David Bellamy and Bobby Braddock
One of my new favorites of theirs. THere are lots of walk-ups and walk-downs in this song.
well they let [E]Bubba out of prison, well he [C#m]paid for his crime
[E]He didn't know them bad checks could get him so much tim[E7]e
And s[E]ister's getting married, well there's a s[C#m]hotgun on the groom
[E]I hope they finish the weddings vows be[B7]fore the baby's d[E]ue[E7]
And Harry's in the closet, well he's been there all his life
And everybody wonders why he never took a wife
And we owe a lot of bills and try to live beyond our meals
We ain't got a pot, but we've got cable TV
But it's o[A]ur family full of ske[E]letons and ghost[E7]s
And e[C#m]ven with our strange relatives it's the o[E]ne we love the most
T[A]here may be a bunch of nuts [E]up our family tree
Yeah and w[C#m]e may all be crazy, but it's [E]still our [B7]fami[E]ly
Grandpa got a girlfriend, a woman half his age
Grandma laughs about it but I sense a silent rage
And Uncle Bert still thinks he's on the Grand Ole Opery
Well that fever from the war left him livin' in a dream
(key change to F)
[F]Well we burried great Aunt Martha out at [Dm]Forest Lawn today
[F]Now I think I know why they called Great Aunt Martha grea[F7]t
[F]The church was full of strange men, Mama c[Dm]alled it a disgrace
She s[F]aid they should have wiped that smile off of G[C7]reat Aunt Martha's f[F]ace
But it's [Bb]our family full of sk[F]eletons and ghosts
And [Dm]even with our strange relatives it's the o[F]ne we love the most[F7]
[Bb]There may be a bunch of nuts u[F]p our family tree
Yeah and [Dm]we may all be crazy but it's s[F]till our [C7]fami[F]ly
