Story behind the song
We are on the verge of forgetting the importance of Thanksgiving. It's not about Black Friday sales, football, or even the wonderful feast. We need to remember to give thanks for our blessings and be generous of heart, thoughts, and acts.
Lyrics
Thankful 11/11/17 Intro: Em Dm G6 C Verse 1: C G Heading home on holiday. Those traffic jams along the way. Am G7 The evening news can be so bad. so many lost in a world gone mad. C G How can we find a way to cope? Where do we turn to raise our hopes? Am G7 We call to mind what we hold dear. So we give thanks this time of year. Chorus 1: Am Dm I’m thankful for the wildlife, like birds that grace the air. G C I’m thankful for America and freedom everywhere. Am Dm I’m thankful for my family I know they’re always there. Em Dm G6 C But most of all I’m thankful for the love that we all share. Instrumental Verse: Chorus 2: Am Dm I’m thankful for a cool spring breeze that gentle waves your hair. G C I’m thankful for my health and strength though I could take more care. Am Dm I’m thankful for how music’s power brings inspiration rare. Em Dm G6 C But most of all I’m thankful for the love that we all share. Verse 2: C G The Pilgrims fled from tyranny to find new hope across the sea. Am G7 With loved ones near we gather ‘round to share the feast and joyful sounds. C G At dinner’s end ignore the call of football games and shopping malls. Am G7 Just pause to think how you’ve been blessed and ways to share with all the rest. Chorus 3: Am Dm I’m thankful to Almighty God, who hears our every prayer. G C I’m thankful for the ones who serve with strength beyond compare. Am Dm I’m thankful for all my dear friends, they lift me from despair. Em Dm G6 C But most of all I’m thankful for the love that we all share. Em Dm G6 C But most of all I’m thankful for the love that we all share.
