Lyrics

Toast

I See her there in the kitchen
In an apron cookin' on the stove
A Heart of gold, unselfish love
Like I've never known.

Her days were spent in labor
From Sunrise on through the night
Tried to teach me right from wrong
might say she was my guiding light.
she was my guiding light.

Let's drink a toast to the mothers
Let's drink a toast to our friends
Fathers brothers the kids and the lovers
Let's drink a toast to them.

I see him standin' before me,
Strong as an old oak tree.
How could hands so tough, be so damn soft.
When he'd reach down to touch my cheek.

There were days when I would stumble
There were times I'd take a fall
but I always knew I would get back up
My Daddy taught me to stand tall.
Yea he taught to stand tall.

Let's drink a toast to the fathers
Let's drink a toast to our friends
Mothers sisters brothers & lovers
Let's drink a toast to them.
Let's drink a toast to them.



Time rolls like a river
Years just drift away
There's no gold,
that can soothe your soul
like the love you give today


There's folks who know all about me.
My secrets, my loves and my fears.
they stick by me through thick & thin.
Through the smiles and through the tears.

I raise my glass for the people
who help me carry this load
cause this life without trust is so damn cold.
only love can warm the soul.
only love can warm the soul.

Let's drink a toast to good friends
and the times we get to spend
Mothers sisters brothers & lovers
Let's drink a toast to them.

Let's drink a toast to the Mothers
Let's drink a toast to our friends
Fathers brothers the kids and the lovers
Let's drink a toast to them.
Let's drink a toast to them.
Let's drink a toast to them.
