CHRISTMAS TOGETHER Walter Brennan - 1962 (That's why we're all together) (That's why there's Christmas Day) SPOKEN: Christmas time in our family Hasn't changed at all We even start lookin' forward to it Way back in the Fall 'Cause if'n the good Lord's a-willin' I don't care how bad the weather Christmas is the one time o' year We all spend together Now Ma starts a-bakin' I set out to find a tree It seem's like that's the one job That's always left to me Then, when they all start arrivin' You can just feel the spirit mount Ev'ry year there's a few more grand-young'uns Heh-heh, I give up tryin' to count Christmas Eve, after supper We all help trim the tree Then all the kiddies gather 'round There's a couple on my knee And Grandma smiles from her rockin' chair She knows I'm in my glory Then ev'ryone wants to hear My fav'rite Christmas story How angels sang of a Christ child The news spread near and far The three wise men who came to see Were guided by a star They found him there in a manger Asleep on a bed of hay That's why we're all together That's why there's a Christmas Day By this time their little heads would start to nod And off to bed they'd go Hopin' Santa wouldn't have no trouble A-gettin' through the snow An' then they'd have us up at the crack o' dawn We'd gather 'round the tree, heh-heh Yeah, I'd get the usual pair o' socks That Grandma knits for me No, Christmas in our family Hasn't changed at all When we sit down to dinner We offer thanks for all 'Cause if the good Lord's willin' I don't care how bad the weather Christmas Day's the one time o' the year We always spend together (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2005)
