Chris Young - White Lightning Hit The Family Tree

rate me

It was the thirty-first gatherin' of the Thompsons, Jones and Smiths THere were tables full of chicken, taters, collard greens and grits Well it all took place at Hatie Lake State Park Volleyball, fishin, badminton, yard darts Aunt Irene said she'd never seens a turnout like this It started with handshakes and Lordy how the babies have grown As the sun got hotter, the day got to draggin' along I saw Uncle Gene coming back from his car With something clear as water in a mason jar The lemonade got hearty and Lord the party was on CHORUS: That ol' boom box got louder and louder Actin' civilized didn't seem to matter Everybody got to showin' their hiney includin' me Lord I'd never known Granny to take her a sip But the words were slurring comin' offa her lips And it dawned on me, white lightnin' hit the family tree Cousin Johnny was a Gator, Jimmy was a UT fan And that football talk was quickly gettin' out of hand Granny told Uncle Dave that she hated his guts Got right up in his face and said your whole fam damily's nuts Chicken legs got to flyin' and the whoop started hittin' the fan CHORUS: That ol' park ranger jumped out of his car Said listen here folks, it's gone a little too far Tear it all down, pack it all up Call it quits while there's still a little love Yeah I'd never known Granny to take her a sip But the words were slurrin' right offa her lips And it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree Yeah it dawned on me white lightnin' hit the family tree Oh, but they had a good time man Take it on ya'll
