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
