  • Sister smoked all the Camels in the County Last week
    She cleaned out the 7/11, sneaking in smelling like nocotine
    Momma's burning chicken for the Tupperware party tonight
    Daddy's asleep in his chair, the TV's blaring the stats for Halftime

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Real life can get real funny
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    We got more love than we got money

    [Chorus]
    Some sing a little higher
    Some will just hang low
    A few of us are on fire to get out
    And some just want to stay home
    But it don't matter
    Cause our roots run deep
    And ain't nothing gonna shake our Family Tree

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Ba-da-da-da-ba-da-da-da
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

    [Verse 2]
    Grandma sold her Maytag dryer to post my Uncle's bail
    He'll be hanging her laundry till there's a snow storm in Hell
    Me and my cousins like to take a Sunday drive
    Roll one up before Pot luck lunch and get high school high

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Real life can get real funny
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    We got more love than we got money

    [Chorus]
    Some sing a little higher
    Some will just hang low
    A few of us are on fire to get out
    And some just want to stay home
    But it don't matter
    Cause our roots run deep
    And ain't nothing gonna shake our Family Tree
    Ain't nothing gonna shake our Family Tree

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Ba-da-da-da-ba-da-da-da
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

    [Bridge]
    Some of us got problems, but everybody's alright
    Some of us got big plans, some are just planning on gettin' by
    Some of us got problems, but they love us anyway
    Through thick and thin, hell we're still kin at the end of the day

    [Chorus]
    Some sing a little higher
    Some will just hang low
    A few of us are on fire to get out
    And some just want to stay home
    But it don't matter
    Cause our roots run deep
    And ain't nothing gonna shake our Family Tree
    Ain't nothing gonna shake our Family Tree

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Real life can get real funny
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    We got more love than we got money
    Ain't nothing gonna shake our Family Tree
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    (oh our roots run deep)
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Ain't nothin', ain't nothin' gonna shake
    Ain't nothing gonna shake our Family Tree
