John Eddie – Family Tree lyrics

Daddy hit the bottle
Momma hit the roof
They must've hit it off
I'm the living proof
All their bad habits
Got handed down to me
You can find me hanging
From the family tree

Daddy had his demons
They moved in for the kill
Daddy up and died
Left them demons in his will
I'm fighting with the devil
And he outweighs me
Jesus cut me down from the family tree

Well, now the roots run deep
Through my own back yard
The fruit goes bad
And it don't fall far
Nothing good grows from a
Bad seed
You can find me hanging from the family tree

Drank a little courage
Got a hunk of rope
Got everything I need
Everything but hope

Carved a prayer in the bark
"Heaven please take me"
Please don't leave me swinging from the family tree

Repeat chorus

Please don't leave me swinging from the family tree
Jesus cut me down from the family tree
