  • Mama's crying again, her baby's nowhere to be found
    The world has gone taken her away
    Daddy went and ran off with some white trash half his age
    Left me at home to pay for his mistakes
    My sister held my hand when that bad boy broke my heart
    Ain't no miles ain't no man could ever tear us apart

    [Chorus:]
    Now here I stand on roots that deep
    We laugh we cry we hurt we bleed
    We're best of friends and worst enemies
    We're all to blame, we're all the same
    Make no apologies
    This is my family

    I can't forget the night that Uncle William passed away
    We were forced to recognize his weird disease
    I ran away and ran around with a man twice my age
    Ain't it funny how some things never change

    [Chorus]

    Don't you try to shame my name
    'Cause 'till the death I will defend
    Yeah this blood runs through my veins
    It's where I start and where I'll end
    Now here I stand on roots that deep
    We laugh we cry we hurt we bleed
    We're best of friends and worst enemies
    We're all to blame, we're all the same
    Make no apologies
    This is my family Writer/s: BLAIR DALY, DEAN SHEREMET, LEANN RIMES
