Lyrics

FAMILY RECIPE

Dale Allen/Charley Stefl

We always had our Sunday dinner
Gathered 'round the family table
Home grown greens and momma's apple pie
The kind not found on any label
I can still remember
The words my momma said to me
"Son, what makes this dinner special
Is our family recipe"

This old family recipe
Has been handed down to me
It's been treasured through the years
And perfected lovingly
It's held my life together
And made me what I need to be
And now I'd like to share with you
My family recipe

Take a woman and a man
A couple children maybe more
Mix in all the love you can
You've got a real treat in store
Start each day out with a kiss
Add a hug...or two...or three
Be sure to tell them all you love them
That's my family recipe

(Repeat chorus)

(Repeat second verse over Chorus melody)

Tag:
Start each day out with a kiss
Add a hug...or two...or three
Be sure to tell them all you love them
That's my family recipe
