Lyrics

I met a woman
Not from here
I really didn’t care
All I knew was she turned the ground before me
Into somewhere
I had to keep things moving
So I asked her, tell me about yourself
Her hand quickly joined mine
Holding a picture
A baby with its mama
The resemblance I could see
She said shut your eyes
And through my mom’s courage
Learn about me
Together we can feel her…
Together we can feel her…

Roaring off the prairie
Going with the wind
Heading West young woman
Below the city of sin
Beneath the hill of the lone cactus
Watch her navigate the pain
Crying out
“It’s all about the family”
‘Cause everyone knows…
Blood is thicker than rain
Thicker than rain
Blood is thicker than rain
Thicker than rain

I told her, your mom is quite a lady
Moving all those many miles
If you’re half the force that she is
To be in your company
Makes me a lucky man
She said, mom taught me lines only serve a purpose
If they’re going to be crossed
If I didn’t think like that
I would have told you to get lost
It’s a mom’s natural given instinct
To shield her kids from all despair
Even if that means
Getting them
The jet quick
Hell out of there
One more time to keep us honest
Together we can feel her…

Roaring off the prairie
Going with the wind
Heading West young woman
Below the city of sin
Beneath the hill of the lone cactus
Watch her navigate the pain
Crying out
“It’s all about the family”
‘Cause everyone knows…
Blood is thicker than rain
Thicker than rain
Blood is thicker than rain
Thicker than rain

I said, thank the heavens for the life lesson
That allowed me to meet you
Self, please hold myself together
While I stand here rattled
By the vision
Of the eyes
Gifted by a mother’s love so true
How far is it to Georgia?
How far is it to Spain?
The answer doesn’t matter
To those brave moms
Either when they come
Or when they came…

Roaring off the prairie
Going with the wind
Heading West young woman
Below the city of sin
Beneath the hill of the lone cactus
Watch her navigate the pain
Crying out
“It’s all about the family”
‘Cause everyone knows…
Blood is thicker than rain
Thicker than rain
Blood is thicker than rain
Blood is thicker than rain

Crying out
“It’s all about the family”
‘Cause everyone knows…
Blood is thicker than rain
