Love Of The Common People (Henson Cargill)

Livin' on free food tickets water in the milk from the hole in the roof Where the rain comes through what can you do uh Tears from little sister cryin' cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch For the party to go oh but you know she'll get by Because she is livin' in the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can and she can It's a good thing you don't have a busfare It would fall through the hole in your pocket And you'd lose it on the snow on the ground a walking to town to find a job Trying to keep your hands warm But the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through And it chills you to the bone boy you'd better go home where it's warm Well you're livin' in the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can and she can Livin' on dreams ain't easy But the closer the knit the tighter the fit and the chills stay away You take 'em in stride family pride You know that faith is your foundation And with a whole lotta love and a warm conversation of course there's prayer Makin' you strong where you belong Well you can live in the love of the common people... Live in the love of the common people...
