Lord bless this woman Who stands here today Light her path for the journey Show her the way Fill her heart with the courage To weather all life's storms Bless this woman Lord hold her in Your arms
Lord bless this man Who stands here today Teach him patience is often the key Give him wisdom to choose A life that leads to You Bless this man Lord show him Your way CHORUS
CHORUS To have & to hold from this day forward
To love & forgive what comes with time
To cherish the moments spent together
Oh Lord make them blessed in Your eyes (*end)
Lord bless this union Performed here today May they shine with your light For others to see May their hearts know the wonder Of being one with you Bless this union Lord, rejoice in what You've made CHORUS
Daddy met a pretty girl and he courted her by train Two hours just to see her and two hours home again They took the train to Macon, the day he took her hand He took her home to be his wife, the wife of a railroad man CHORUS
The railroad kept us moving to several little towns But Daddy wasn’t home much, his job was railroad bound When he was he told us stories of life upon the rail Mama kept us grounded church on Sunday without fail CHORUS
His boys just kept on growing. One died in Vietnam. Daddy met him at the gates, by that time he was gone. For all the years between us, And all the years we had He taught me how to be a man. I’m proud he was my Dad CHORUS
Michigan Girl first appeared on It's A Michigan Thing released by the Northern Michigan Songwriters In The Round. We re-recorded it for our own CD Turn Back A Page. The chorus sometimes turns into quite the singalong when we perform it around home.
One Saturday in July 2010 we received an email from a fan. There was no message, only the subject line: "Just heard you on Car Talk." Sure enough, Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, had featured The Highway Song as a bumper between segments of the popular NPR program, Car Talk, making this officially " another Stupid Car Song." We love it! If you ever hear us on the radio and think we should know about it, be sure to drop us a line.
Chorus- I can see them in the distance in my rearview mirror And they’re moving at the speed of light Soon they’ll be by me in a flash and out of sight
I have seen on this highway some very fast cars Eager to find their way through With all of that muscle & all of that power As if they had something to prove Some of them drive like there’ll be no tomorrow And maybe for some that is true Maybe that next shooting star in the sky will be you
I have shared this old highway with many a soul Some of them drive 55 Sometimes I pass them, sometimes they pass me Sometimes we ride side by side Often I wonder just where they are going And if they are now close to home And how long they’ll stay there before they are tempted to roam
