    Lyrics

    (Dobie Gray / Eddie Sester / John Greenbaum)

    Well, I was raised up by the golden rule
    In an old house with a patched up roof
    We had a hard home but it pulled us close
    We were family.

    Oh, that summer when the crops all died
    Was the first time I saw Daddy cry
    An' I heard Momma say what goes on here stays
    In the family.

    Chorus:
    Well our clothes weren't new, that old car was used
    We held our own
    Whoa, you just can't buy, that sense of pride
    We grew up on, In the family.

    --- Instrumental ---

    I remember every Sunday night
    After supper 'round the firelight
    How peaceful Daddy looked
    As he read the good book
    In the family.

    Well, some folks said we were barely makin' do
    We were better off than they ever knew
    We never had much but we sure had love
    In the family.

    Chorus:
    Well our clothes weren't new, that old car was used
    We held our own
    Whoa, you just can't buy, that sense of pride
    We grew up on, In the family.

    In the family...
