Lyrics with chords
INTRO C Am x4 VERSE C They're there for your first year, they give you your first beer Dm When you get your heart broke, they're there for your worst year G (w/ riff) C Am C Am Don't get you at all, but your apple don't fall too far from 'em C They own too much wicker and drink too much liquor Dm You'd wash your hands of them, but blood's always thicker G (w/ riff) You might look just like 'em, that don't mean you're like 'em C But you love 'em CHORUS C F Family is family, in church or in prison G F G You get what you get, and you don't get to pick 'em C F They might smoke like chimneys, but give you their kidneys G F G C Am C Am Yeah, friends come in handy, but family is family VERSE #2 C They're there when you're married, divorced, and remarried Dm You fall out of touch, but then someone gets buried G (w/ riff) C Am C Am And you're right back together like no time has ever gone by C Can't live with or without 'em, you might talk about 'em Dm But if someone else does well, then you'll knock 'em out cause G (w/ riff) C When it's all said and done, they're the only ones that you got CHORUS #2 [chorus] => C Dm F G CHORUS #3 C F Yeah family is funny, they'll ask you for money G F G Even though they know you ain't got no money C F They show up at Christmas, get up in your business G F G => C Am x4 They might not be fancy, but family is family ENDING G (w/ riff) You might look just like 'em, that don't mean you're like 'em C (let ring) But you love 'em
