White Lightning Hit the Family Tree  Chris Young

[G]It was the thirty-first gatherin' of the Thompsons, Jones and Smiths
THere were tables full of chicken, taters, collard greens and [D]grits
Well it [G]all took place at Hatie Lake State Park
[C]Volleyball, fishin, badminton, yard darts
Aunt [A7]Irene said she'd never seens a turnout like [D]this
[G]It started with handshakes and Lordy how the babies have grown
As the sun got hotter, the day got to draggin' a[D]long
I [G]saw Uncle Gene coming back from his car
With [C]something clear as water in a mason jar
The lemon[G]ade got hearty and [D]Lord the party was [G]on
That [C]ol' boom box got l[F]ouder and louder
[G]Actin' civilized didn't seem to matter
Every[C]body got to showin' their hiney includin' [D]me
Lord I'd [G]never known Granny to take her a sip
But the [C]words were slurring comin' offa her lips
And it [G]dawned on me, white l[D]ightnin' hit the family [G]tree
[G]Cousin Johnny was a Gator, Jimmy was a UT fan
And that football talk was quickly gettin' out of [D]hand
Granny [G]told Uncle Dave that she hated his guts
Got [C]right up in his face and said your whole fam damily's nuts
Chicken [G]legs got to flyin' and the [D]whoop started hittin' the [G]fan
That [F]ol' park ranger jumped [C]out of his car
Said [G/]listen here folks, it's gone a little too far
[F]Tear it all down, [C]pack it all up
[D7]Call it quits while there's still a little love
Yeah I'd [G]never known Granny to take her a sip
But the [C]words were slurrin' right offa her lips
And it [G]dawned on me white [D]lightnin' hit the family [G]tree
Yeah it [G]dawned on me white [D]lightnin' hit the family [G]tree
[G]Oh, but they had a good time man
[G]Take it on ya'll
