“Someday a Family” – Song

This reminiscent Americana song stirs emotions with HUGE sad hooks. Leans towards a mainstream Classic Country sound.

LYRICS

“Someday a Family”
Words and Music by Toby Barns

Mama worked all night in a factory
Daddy drove a truck six days a week
My friend Bobby said that I was lucky
‘Cause when they were home I had a family

Bobby’s been my friend since we were eight years old
He used to talk about his daddy going to Heaven alone
And how his mom when out so much she was always away
I guess Bobby didn’t have nothin’ better to say

To this day I still remember the weight
On the shoulders of that little man
And the sad, sad look on his face
The words that he said echo again and again

He said I won’t laugh ’till there’s someone to hear me
I won’t cry ’till the night when I can cry myself to sleep
That’s okay with me
Someday I’ll have a family

Last time I saw Bob several years had gone by
He had a little boy and a beautiful wife
He said man their the best things ever happened to me
Now he’s got himself a family

To this day I still remember the weight
On the shoulders of that little man
And the sad, sad look on his face
The words that he said echo again and again

To this day I still remember the weight
On the shoulders of that little man
And the sad, sad look on his face
The words that he said echo again and again

He said I won’t laugh ’till there’s someone to hear me
I won’t cry ’till the night when I can cry myself to sleep
That’s okay with me
Someday I’ll have a family

Yeah, someday I’ll have a family
