not so new song

…the fourth of July…

I got corn
I got dreams
And there sure seems to be enough pie

I got you
You got me
And we’ve both got the fourth of July

It’s the fourth of July
It’s the fourth of July
We’re sending all our hopes
Up in smoke
On the fourth of July

Well Jenny’s winning the sack race
Dragging Johnny by his toes
And grandma’s sneaking one more spirit
How many she’s had
Who knows

It’s the fourth of July
It’s the fourth of July
We’re sending all our hopes
Up in smoke
On the fourth of July

The kids are all ‘round Uncle Charlie
As he digs for loose change
Cause every quarter from his pocket is sure to buy more rockets
For what might as well be outer space

It’s the fourth of July
It’s the fourth of July
We’re sending all our hopes
Up in smoke
On the fourth of July

I’m about to ask
If I can hold your hand
But just when I do
You grab mine
And hell I’ll be damned


Say goodnight
As the family takes flight
And gathers up all their things
Sweep the ashes into a pile
And thank the Lord for all he brings

I got corn
I got dreams
And there sure seems to be enough pie

I got you
You got me
And we’ve both got the fourth of July

It’s the fourth of July
It’s the fourth of July
We’re sending all our hopes
Up in smoke
On the fourth of July

We’re sending all our hopes
Up in smoke
On the fourth of July

We’re sending all our hopes
Up in smoke
