lyrics

GRATEFUL

Lynda Brown / Jay Clementi

I’ve been betrayed a hundred ways, cried a thousand tears
Watched my sweet humble momma, get abused for years

I wish my Dad, was a Dad but no he chose liquor
You might think, you might think that I’d be sad and bitter but I’m

Grateful
For my family and my God that’s
Faithful
For all the paths I’ve been on,
The right ones and the wrong
The calm storms and the strong
They brought me here to where I’m able to
Be grateful

My strength and my weakness is compassion in my heart
Brought me joy, peace and friends but ripped my world apart

I gave the best of me, best of me in work and in love
I gave all of me, all of me and guess I gave too much but I’m

Grateful
For my family and my God that’s
Faithful
For all the paths that I’ve been on
The right ones and the wrong
The short ones and the long
They brought me here to where I’m able to
Be grateful

But I won’t let the past define me
But I’ll let it remind me
Of the legacy I’ves left behind me

And I’m
Grateful
For my family and my god that’s
Faithful
For all the paths I’ve been on,
The right ones and the wrong
Singing my own song
They brought me here to where I’m able to
Be grateful, grateful, grateful
