    Food On The Table

    My dad was a big man with a will that was tough
    He was at his best when the going was rough
    He made a livin' for the family and never had to cheat
    To keep food on the table and shoes on our feet.

    We sat down at the table and thanked God in prayer
    'Cause we had plenty to eat and plenty to wear
    We had patches on our britches but mamma kept us neat
    We had food on the table and shoes on our feet.

    We picked the cotton and gathered the corn
    We were to taught to work from the day we were born
    Mom and Dad and all us children
    Worked in the summer's heat
    To keep food on the table and shoes on our feet.

    We sat down at the table and thanked God in prayer
    'Cause we had plenty to eat and plenty to wear
    We had patches on our britches but mamma kept us neat
    We had food on the table and shoes on our feet.

    Well today it's the same no matter where you go
    If you're gonna stay ahead you've gotta stay on your toes
    You've gotta be a winner don't believe in defeat
    If you keep food on the table and shoes on your feet.

    When you sit down at the table thank God in prayer
    If you've got plenty to eat and plenty to wear
    If you've got patches on your britches
    Just be sure and keep them neat
    If you've got food on the table and shoes on your feet.

    We sat down at the table and thanked God in prayer
    'Cause we had plenty to eat and plenty to wear
    We had patches on our britches but mamma kept us neat
    We had food on the table and shoes on our feet...
