Genre/Lang. : Country (2006)

She didn't own a home never drove a car
But if you knew her she lived for
Treasures that money can not buy
In a two room flat on borrowed ground
Family and friends came from miles around
To share a cup of coffee and one of her fried pies

Oh what I would give to hear her say
Could you run me to town today
And if you have time when you stop by
I'll fix you somethin' to eat
Oh we could learn if we tried
The secret of her simple life
The love of God and the love of family

She worked a miracle with just a few things
Then she'd spread a feast fit for a king
And I remember she always said
This ain't gonna be no count
But I set by her bed just the other day
Held her hand and I heard her say
You're beautiful I love you there's no doubt

Oh what I would give to hear her say
Could you run me to town today
And if you have time when you stop by
I'll fix you somethin' to eat
Oh we could learn if we tried
The secret of her simple life
The love of God and the love of family

Now she looks down from the happy side of forever
While we look through all the questions and the pain
And through our tears we hear her voice
Asking us to make the right choice
And not let foolish pride stand in our way

But what I would give just to hear her say
Could you run me to town today
And if you have time when you stop by
I'll fix you somethin' to eat
Oh we could learn if we tried
The secret of her simple life
The love of God and the love of family

It was the love of God and the love of family
