Lyrics

Brick by Brick
© 2010 Lyric’s by Janice Hopkins and Greg C. Brown and music by Larry Vannatta


(G)                                                        (C)  
Grandpa Foley turned 90 last May, the family all came out to celebrate.

(Em)                                                        (D)
Most of his years had all been kind; his feet were moving slowly, but not his mind.

(Em)                                                    (C)
He started working at an early age, forty-one years in the building trade.

(G)                                                            (D)
Concrete, mortar, hard work and sweat; he couldn’t look back on a single regret

(Em)                             (C)                 (D)         (Em)                                  (C)               (D) 
He told me, you know you’re nearly grown, you’ll soon be leaving your momma and home


CHORUS

        (G)                                           (C)           (G)     (Em)                                      (D)
So…Build your place in this world, call it your own, Brick by brick, and stone by stone

(Em)                                 (C)         (G)                    (D)                              (G) 
Use two steady hands ‘til the pieces fit, Add a little love just to make it all stick.

         (C)                     (D)                   (G)
And build a life worth living Brick by brick.


Verse 3:
I listened closely but I was so young, didn’t know then what I could become.
At 18 years, he gave me a clue, Said life’s made up of what you’re willin’ to do.

His good advice spun around in my head, I never forgot the words that he said.

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE

(Bm)                     (C)                             (G)        (B7)                                         (Em)
When I got word that Grandpa’d passed away, I knew he’d earned his bonus at last.

(Bm)                       (C)                          (G)         (B7)                                          (Em)
Things aren’t created in the blink of an eye, It’s the slow, forward steps that make a life.

(C)               (D)                (G) 
Just like he told me that time…..

He joined an elite allied force, a special assault team Germanys learn to fear them and called them Devils Brigades Chorus Tommy Prince he was soldier, a brave and honored man Received England’s Military Medal and the American Silver Star He was decorated nine times the most of his Kind Yet Tommy could not vote for his country, he was born an aboriginal man He fought like a true Canadian in England, Italy and France. His fellow Green Beret’s said Tommy was one of the bravest of all men. He was a hero in both the Second World War and the Korean War too.

These wonderful Gospel Lyric's where sent to me by Greg Brown & Janice Hopkins. Pure Country Gospel. I wrote the music for this lyrics and recorded this demo at Home.

Lyrics

The Day I Felt Your Grace © 2009 Greg C. Brown, Janice Hopkins & Larry Vannatta It’s so hard to recall my life without you How I survived it, I still can’t say All I know is I was wandering alone And desperately losing my way My days and nights were misguided truths Filled with deceit and gold-plated lies The smiles of the people I saw as friends Were part of the devil’s disguise But all that changed when you found me Wrapped in your love, my spirit’s free I was lifted on your shoulders Then forgiveness let me see The man I’d been was gone without a trace It happened on The Day I Felt Your Grace All the years on the streets had swallowed my soul While I searched for unnatural highs Trust had been lost when I was so young When no one answered my cries Repeat Chorus: Bridge: My life had spiraled out of control But you showed me there was hope for my soul Repeat Chorus (changed up in first line) Yes, all that changed when you found me Wrapped in your love, my spirit’s free I was lifted on your shoulders Then forgiveness let me see The man I’d been was gone without a trace It happened on The Day I Felt Your Grace I learned your Father sent you here to save That happened on The Day I Felt Your Grace
