Family Tree Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, all the dreams have gone from my worried mind
Ain't no pretty pictures left by luck's design
And baby, I'm just a leaf hanging on my family tree
I'm just a leaf hanging on my family tree

And it's a weak branch that's been hanging me
April, if you May, comes to June and July
All these months to the flame and still no butterfly, boy
I'm just a leaf blowing on my family tree
I'm just a leaf blowing on my family tree

And it's strong wind that's been blowing me
Baby, don't you cry, it won't matter to you
'Cause every bad life goes by
And your mama loves you, yes she does

Now, there's a lotta good things that my daddy did
But there ain't no burden like an unplanned kid
And baby, I'm falling now, don't know where I'm gonna land
I'm falling now, don't know where I'm gonna land
Half in the shadows, honey, and half in the light, that's right

Baby, don't you cry, it won't matter to you
It won't matter to you
'Cause every bad life goes by
And your mama loves you
