John Vanderslice - My Family Tree Lyrics

Dad, I watched you fall
And split your head on the dock
I couldn't bear to see
A lion so meek
In the francis jay memorial wing
So I never came

my family tree is me

angela, sister near, once
Stripper severe
Your husband donnie
Is pure fear
So I stay clear

my family tree is me

mother dear
Your eyes are lost
Gunpowder shot
Gun tossed, there's nothing left to brood
I lost you too

my family tree is me
Now I'm set free
