​Pinewood Chests

This song is by Tyler Lyle and appears on the album Notes from the Parade (2009).

You take your time and the words don't rhyme
But I sing them anyway
And rain don't come but these roots are strong
And they always find their way

There are photographs
Of a well worn past
Where my fathers I laid to rest
It's a hallowed scene
We don't know what it means
In these pinewood chests
But we'll do our best

Time moves steady along
It's a similar tune
For a different song
Time moves steady along
It's the way we move

My inheritance is scars and bricks
But I, I'll do my best
And there's nothing new under skies so blue
And there's never any rest

There's a granite stone
Pointed home
Where my fathers I laid to rest
It's a hallowed scene
We don't know what it means
In these pinewood chests
We'll do our best

Time moves steady along
It's a similar tune
For a different song
Time moves steady along
It's the way we move
It's the way we move

And the choir sang "Beulah Land" when my grandpa had gone
And when they laid me in the ground
I want to hear a gospel song

Time moves steady along
It's a similar tune
For a different song
Time moves steady along
It's the way we move
It's the way we move
