Kristian Wyatt - The Song That Kept The House Warm




There was a time It was long ago When the oil tank was empty And in the sky was snow So I picked up my six string And I wrote a few lines I put a pretty melody together And that song did fly It was the song that kept the house warm It was the song that fed the kids when they were small It was the song that the whole country knew It was the song inspired by you All those worries Gone from my head No more searching for coins To buy a loaf of bread That song took us places We never thought we’d go All the dreams that we fulfilled We thought we’d never know It was the song that kept the house warm It was the song that fed the kids when they were small It was the song that the whole country knew It was the song inspired by you Every night, a different stage And the crowds grew bigger, so did the pay As the stage lights rose, you were there stage right And when the stage lights faded, you held me through the night But the strings grew thin We were getting tired So we exchanged the road life For nights by the fire Now some nights we sit thinking Of life before that song And I strum it real gently And we’ll both sing along It was the song that kept the house warm It was the song that fed the kids when they were small It was the song that the whole country knew It was the song inspired by you It was the song that kept the house warm It was the song that fed the kids when they were small It was the song that the whole country knew It was the song inspired by you Written by: Kristian Wyatt Copyright: 2020 Kristian Wyatt Sound engineer: @Rakanayyoub
