  • They're there for your first year, they give you your first beer
    When you get your heart broke, they're there for your worst year
    Don't get you at all, but your apple don't fall too far from 'em

    They own too much wicker and drink too much liquor
    You'd wash your hands of them, but blood's always thicker
    You might look just like 'em, that don't mean you're like 'em
    But you love 'em

    Family is family, in church or in prison
    You get what you get, and you don't get to pick 'em
    They might smoke like chimneys, but give you their kidneys
    Yeah, friends come in handy, but family is family

    They're there when you're married, divorced, and remarried
    You fall out of touch, but then someone gets buried
    And you're right back together like no time has ever gone by

    Can't live with or without 'em, you might talk about 'em
    But if someone else does, well, then you'll knock 'em out 'cause
    When it's all said and done, they're the only ones that you got

    Family is family, in church or in prison
    You get what you get, and you don't get to pick 'em
    They might smoke like chimneys, but give you their kidneys
    Yeah, friends come in handy, but family is family

    Yeah, family is funny, they'll ask you for money
    Even though they know you ain't got no money
    They show up at Christmas, get up in your business
    They might not be fancy, but family is family

    You might look just like 'em, that don't mean you're like 'em
    But you love 'em Writer/s: Josh Osborne, Kacey Musgraves, Shane L Mcanally
