Wanda Jackson – Love Of The Common People lyrics

Livin' on free food tickets water in the milk from the hole in the roof
Where the rain came through what can you do
Tears from little sister cryin' cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch
For the party to go oh but she knows she'll get by
Cause she is livin' in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love her just as much as she can and she can

It's a good thing you don't have a busfare
It would fall through the hole in your pocket
And you'd lose it on the snow on the ground a walking to town to find a job
Tryin' to keep your hands warm
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through
And it chills to the bone boy you'd better go home where it's warm
And you can live in the love...

Livin' on dreams ain't easy
But the closer the knit the tighter the fit and the chills stay away
You take 'em in stride family pride you know that faith is your foundation
And a whole lot of love and a warm conversation and plenty of prayer
Making you strong where you belong
And you can live in the love...
Oh yes we live in the love...
