Front Porch Swing
There’s a place I love to be,
A front porch with a swing,
My Granny rocking all day long,
The swing creaking out it’s song,
She rocks back and forth
Talking as she goes
Stories told of now,
And of long ago.
Her family there before her
She’s as happy as can be
But now we’ll rock alone
On that front porch with a swing
Heaven opened up it’s doors,
and Jesus called her home.
And we know that somewhere now
She rocks forever more,
Jesus will be happy to have her there with him
For never will he rock alone
And no stories will he need
She will tell him all the tales she
Has told us for so long
So rock away sweet Granny
Hold your baby in your arms,
Kiss Papa Ed hello for us
And rejoice forever more
