The Gathering

THE GATHERING
By Emily Higgins and Steve Chaney

Southwest of Willow
Down a country highway
East of Vera Cruz
On a mid-October day
There’s gonna be a gathering
Those boys are cookin’ barbecue
It’s gonna be a good time
For family and friends, too

CHORUS 1:
I’m going to the gathering
I wonder what they’re gonna bring
‘Cause you can find anything
Like a sweet potato pie
Or coconut cream
To the gathering…oh yeah!

SOLO

CHORUS 2:
I’m going to the gathering
I wonder what they’re gonna bring
‘Cause you can find anything
Like homemade wine
And sassafrass tea
At the gathering…oh yeah!

Southwest of Willow
Down a country highway
East of Vera Cruz
On a mid-October day
Why don’t you come to the gathering
I really hope you want to
‘Cause it’s gonna be a good time
And I can’t wait to see you

CHORUS 3:
‘Cause I’m going to the gathering
And I know what I’m gonna bring
I could bring anything
So I’m bringing my family
And songs to sing
To the gathering…oh yeah!
