Family Tree

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Van Lear Rose (2004).

Woman you don't know me
But you can bet that I know you
Everybody in this whole darn town
Knows you too.

I brought along our little babies
'Cause I wanted them to see
The woman that's burning down
Our family tree.

No, I didn't come to fight
If he was a better man I might
But I wouldn't dirty my hands
On trash like you, no.

Bring out the babies, daddy
That's who they've come to see
Not the woman that's burning down
Our family tree

Their daddy once was a good man
Until he ran into trash like you
Take a look at baby's face
And tell me who loves who.

I brought along his ole dog Charlie
And the bills that's overdue
The job your workin'
Lord, we need money too.

No, I didn't come to fight
If he was a better man I might
But I wouldn't dirty my hands
On trash like you, no.

Bring out the babies, daddy
That's who they've come to see
Not the woman that's burning down
Our family tree.

No, not the woman that's burning down
Our family tree...
