Paul Overstreet — Sowin' Love lyrics

I use to love to walk behind my daddy
As he plowed our garden every spring
Our little bare feet in the dirt would make me happy
As we talked about what harvest time would bring.

He'd say son this whole world is like a garden
And what you sow your surely gonna reap
Where bitter seeds are planted hearts will harden
But a caring hand will make the harvest sweet.

Chorus:
And he was sowin' love for the family
Yeah, he was sowin' love, he took a little extra time
Lookin' forward to a bountiful harvest
Like a good father does he was sowin' love.

--- Instrumental ---

And how I use to love and sit and watch my momma
Workin' with her needle and her thread
So patiently she'd listen to our problems
And we knew she heard every word we said.

She'd say "Children this old world is full of scratches
And in your life your bound to have a few. "
I guess that's why the good Lord gave us patches
So we could start each day out feelin' new.

Chorus:
Yes, she was sowin' love for the family
She was sowin' love, she took a little extra time
Lookin' forward to a bountiful harvest
Like a good momma does she was sowin' love.

Chorus:
Yeah, they were sowin' love for the family
They were sowin' love, they took a little extra time
Lookin' forward to a bountiful harvest
They took good care of us they were sowin' love.

Yeah, they did it all for us they were sowin' love...
