Thank You World Submit Correct Lyrics

I wanna thank you world for lettin' me belong
I'm just one fourth of one small group that sings your songs
I know that there are others who have served in bigger ways
All I can do is sing your music all my days

It makes me grateful just to know, to know that I can be
Unique and fill a spot beside the other three
Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause

I may not ever stand like Stonewall Jackson stood
But standing on that stage to me is just as good
And I may never be a heavy or a great
But you've given me the strength, the strength to pull my weight

Oh, for the part I sing is truly part of me
And it does its part to lock the other parts in key
And it does its part to pull, pull that sweet applause
And I thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause

Oh, world you've given me a place that I call mine
Though I've stepped out of it and I've gotten out of line
Sometimes I sing your music slightly out of key
And I know I make it harder for the other three

Oh, and I've always done my part, the very best I could
And it's done with other guys, oh, world you could
You've let me sing your praises world and harp about your faults
I thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause

It makes me grateful just to know, to know that I can be
Unique and fill a spot beside the other three
Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause

Without a place here in this world, I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause
