She was born in Kansas City
 Raised in Arkansas 
Fell in love with an ex-Marine
She already had three babies
He had one of his own
They came together 
For another and me
Our family never shared 
The same last name
But our family 
Was a family, the same
(And they say)
 Blood is thicker than water 
Oh, but love is
 Thicker than blood 

 Wreck out on the highway 
Rain falling down
Lord, he must have
Fell asleep at the wheel 
There's a number of people 
Just standing around
Lord, I can't condemn 
The fear that they feel

For that river of red
 Could be the death of me
God, give me strength 
And keep reminding me
That blood is thicker than water 
Oh, but love is
 Thicker than blood 

And if blood is
 Thicker than water 
Then what are we fighting for?
We're all sons and daughters 
Of something that
 Means so much more

I see it on my TV 
But I can't understand 
Lord, it's one
Big contradiction to me
How in god's name
We love thy neighbor with fists 
In our hands 
And kill each other 
When we just don't agree 

Why can't we see the walls 
We can't see through?
And see what God's
Been telling me and you
(And that is)
 Blood is thicker than water 
Oh, but love
Love is thicker than blood
