Solid Ground

In the style of

John Anderson

Lyrics

a good christian
raisin'
a family foundation

a mom and dad
who taught us
right from
wrong

even through
the hard times
we stayed close
together

that's the
solid ground
that made
me strong

but there were
places
that i had
to go

and things
i had to find
i was looking for
the answers

to the questions
in my mind
but all of the
answers

would be found
on solid ground

for awhile
i wandered aimlessly
and couldn't
see the way

i had to find
out on my own

but the things that
i was lookin' for
were things i
left behind

sometimes we
never miss it
till it's gone

then a beacon
from a lighthouse
led me safely
to the shore

and i didn't
have to worry
or be troubled
anymore

i was finally
comin' back
around
on solid ground

the truths i learned
when i was young
have stood the
test of time

all the rest is
slowly washed
away

i try to teach
my children
the best way
i know how

and hope that
they're on
solid ground
to stay

and the lessons
i was taught
keep on ringin'
in my ears

simple words
of wisdom
i'll remember
through

the years
yes now my feet
are planted sound
on solid ground

yes now my feet
are finally
planted sound on
solid ground
