  • Raise 'em up
    I'm talkin' 'bout a lighter on a Saturday night
    The band plays a song you like and you sing along

    Raise em up
    I'm talkin' 'bout Daddy's old pickup truck
    Shotgun seat, there's the one you love and you're kissin' on

    Get those white sails sailing down in Mexico
    Its just a whiskey glass if you ain't makin' a toast
    Lift your tear-filled eyes up to the sky
    A comin' home, you've been gone too long
    Tonight were gonna
    Raise 'em up

    Raise 'em up
    You got a voice, you got a choice
    Go make some noise
    Don't ever let 'em tell you who you are
    Raise 'em up
    Fist black and blue, fight for the truth
    Its what you do
    Hand on your heart for the stripes and stars

    Black umbrellas in the pourin' rain
    A Sunday Morning Coming Down, Amazing Grace
    Lift those tear-filled eyes up to the sky
    As the flag flies, say goodbye
    Tonight were gonna
    Raise 'em up

    So, you meet someone
    The only one
    You take her by the hand
    Make a stand
    Buy some land
    Make some love
    And them babies come

    Raise 'em up
    Raise 'em up
    Raise 'em up trophy high
    Raise 'em up to the sky
    Raise 'em up, show everybody that newborn smile
    Raise 'em up tall and strong
    Raise 'em up right from wrong
    Raise 'em up so damn high they can hear God singing along
    Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah
    Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah
    Woah, woah, woah, woah Writer/s: JAREN JOHNSTON, JEFFREY STEELE, TOM DOUGLAS
