      About "Give Us A Happy Home"

      Lyrics for Ricky Skaggs - "Give Us A Happy Home"

      He's been wounded already in the struggle of life
      Battered by raging storm of strife
      Caught in a whirlwind of heartbreak and pain
      And blinded by it's driving rain

      The innocent victim of crimes of the heart
      Has witnessed his young world being torn apart
      He can't understand why mom and dad
      Have forsaken the family they had

      So he whispers his prayer every evening
      As he kneels by his bedside alone
      "Put mommy and daddy together again
      And give us a happy home
      Please give us a happy home"

      At night he could hear them in their room down the hall
      The anger rang clearly through his bedroom wall
      He silently listened, tucked snug in his bed
      To each bitter word they said

      Now he and mom each have a room of their own
      He sees dad on weekends and they talk on the phone
      His questions need answers but all they will say
      Is "You'll understand why someday"

      So he whispers his prayer every evening
      As he kneels by his bedside alone
      "Put mommy and daddy together again
      And give us a happy home
      Please give us a happy home"

      Oh, he tries to act just like he's a man
      And hold all the hurt inside
      But it's hard for a little boy to understand
      Grown-up reasons for goodbye

      So he whispers his prayer ever evening
      As he kneels by his bedside alone
      "Put mommy and daddy back together again
      And give us a happy home
      Please give us a happy home"
