Handmade Love and Homemade Nails

 

I recall that cold November day

And the icy wind that blew,

When they came to tear our cabin down

To put the highway through.

I can still see grandpa Nathan

Standing in the road,

He said, "Before you tear it down

There's something you should know."

 

Handmade nails and homemade love

Built this cabin stronger,

Than all the steel machinery

You brought to tear it down,

Through all the years of joy and tears

It held our world together,

Handmade nails and homemade love

Won't crumble to the ground.

 

Now when I look past the flowered fields

At the cabin in the sun,

I remember how my grandpa's words

Got through to everyone,

And you know, they never even

Tried to tear it down,

They built that highway clear across

The other side of town.

 

Handmade nails and homemade love

Built this cabin stronger,

Than all the steel machinery

You brought to tear it down,

Through all the years of joy and tears

It held our world together,

Handmade nails and homemade love

Won't crumble to the ground.

 

  No handmade nails and homemade love

  Never crumbled to the ground.

 

p.s. In case you are a member of a Bluegrass, Folk, or Western group (or know someone who is) and might be interested in co-writing, please let me know - This lyric has already been recorded and released, but I have a lot that haven't. dennisgoodwin1947@gmail.com
