07. Big House

Hit Parade
by Audio Adrenaline



 

I don't know where you lay your head
or where you call your home
I don't know where you eat your meals
or where you talk on the phone
I don't know if you got a cook a butler or a maid
I don't know if you got a yard with a hammock in the shade

I don't know if you got some shelter, say a place to hide
I don't know if you live with friends in whom you can confide
I don't know if you got a family, say a mom or dad
I don't know if you feel love at all, but I bet you wish you had

PRE-CHORUS
Come and go with me to my Father’s house
Come and go with me to my Father’s house

CHORUS
It's a big big house
with lots and lots a room
A big big table
with lots and lots of food
A big big yard
where we can play football
A big big house
Its my Fathers house

All I know is a big ol’ house with rooms for everyone
All I know is lots a land where we can play and run
All I know is you need love and I've got a family
All I know is your all alone so why not come with me?

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS X 2

Behind the Song:
“I was in Haiti when I was in junior high school going back and forth with my parents on mission trips. I was inspired by these kids in Haiti singing a song that was the lyrical equivalent of ‘Come and go with me to my father’s house.’ Also, Bill Gaither had a song when I was real little we’d do at puppet shows called ‘Daddy I Heard You Had a Big House.’ I was like in the 1st grade. I wanted to write a rock song that was fun and talked about heaven that made it sound like a good place to go because when I was growing up, it was kind of ominous and scary. When we wrote that song, Barry had a great guitar hook. I think we were on our way to Florida. We were going to the beach to hang out and we wrote it really quick. We didn’t like it that much at the beginning, but my dad had heard it and said, ‘Man this is a hit. Don’t throw this away!’ “ I put it in my pocket and he said, ‘Trust me, it’s a big hit.’” - Mark Stuart (Audio Adrenaline)
