NO NEED TO KNOCK
© 2013 Thomas/Charles all rights reserved

Their front door ain't never locked
I can walk right in, no need to knock
Small fire takes the chill out of the air

Old flattop still standin' there
Next to Dad's empty chair
I pick it up, start sing
Man that old box sure does ring

This place always makes me feel alive
Every time I turn into that old dirt drive

And I walk across that big front yard, Coffee pot is always on
Momma greets me with a smile, hugs and kisses all around
As I strum a tune on that guitar, and I think about the years I spent,
Sisters, brothers everywhere, I feel them all each time I'm here

They say home is where the heart is, and that's where I keep mine

Lead break

I left here when I was grown, now I got four children of my own
I try to give them all the things, Mom and Daddy gave to me
Pat on the back when they done good, Love 'em all no matter what,
A place where they feel safe and warm that's all there is, it ain't that hard

And a house that always makes them feel alive
Every time they turn into this old dirt drive

And they walk right through that open door, Coffee pot is always on
Momma greets them with a smile, hugs and kisses all around
As I strum away on my guitar, somebody starts to sing along,
Sisters, brothers everywhere, I feel them all each time I'm here
They say home is where the heart is
They say home is where the heart is, and that's where I keep mine

That front door ain't never locked, walk right in, no need to knock
