VERSE 1
THEY’RE AWAKE AT DAWN RARIN’ TO GO
KEEP UP THAT BIG OL’ HOUSE, SO IT ALWAYS FEELS LIKE HOME
ALL THE TIMES THEY SAID DO WHAT YOU LOVE
SO YOU NEVER HAVE THE HEART TO GIVE IT UP
THAT’S MY FOLKS

VERSE 2
I WAS RAISED THE BEST WAY THEY KNEW HOW
TAUGHT TO EARN MY PLACE BY THE SWEAT OF MY OWN BROW
I WATCHED THEM FOLLOW THROUGH ON WHAT THEY SAID
AND LIVE FOR THE MOMENT, STILL LOOKING AHEAD
THAT’S MY FOLKS

CHORUS
THE MORE I LIVE, THE MORE I SEE
THE MORE I KNOW WHAT MEANS THE MOST TO ME
IT’S THE ONES I LOVE, THE ONES WHO LOVE ME BACK
I REALIZE, ALL MY LIFE WHO SHOWED ME THAT
THAT’S MY FOLKS

VERSE 3
I’M NOT SAYIN’ THEY DON’T MAKE MISTAKES
I’VE SEEN THEM FALL, SEEN THEM CRY, SEEN THEM LOSE THEIR FAITH
BUT THEY ALWAYS FIND THE STRENGTH TO PUSH ON THROUGH
I’VE GROWN TO THINK THERE’S NOTHING THEY CAN’T DO
THAT’S MY FOLKS

CHORUS
THE MORE I LIVE, THE MORE I SEE
THE MORE I KNOW WHAT MEANS THE MOST TO ME
IT’S THE ONES I LOVE, THE ONES WHO LOVE ME BACK
I REALIZE, ALL MY LIFE WHO SHOWED ME THAT
THAT’S MY FOLKS

BRIDGE
AS MY CHILDHOOD FALLS A LITTLE FARTHER BEHIND ME
I CAN START TO UNDERSTAND
JUST HOW MUCH THEY GAVE OF THEIR TIME, THEIR DREAMS
IT TOOK A LOT OF THEM TO MAKE ME WHO I AM

CHORUS
NOW, THE MORE I LIVE, THE MORE I SEE
THE MORE I KNOW WHAT MEANS THE MOST TO ME
IT’S THE ONES I LOVE, THE ONES WHO LOVE ME BACK
I REALIZE, ALL MY LIFE WHO SHOWED ME THAT
THAT’S MY FOLKS, THAT’S MY FOLKS
