lyrics

You may come in the front door but the back’s the place to be
Cause Mamaw’s in the kitchen and there so much to see
In her house there are no idle hands she’ll put you to work for sure
Cause in Mamaw’s Kitchen there’s always room for more

They say that the kitchen is the heart of every home
And this one is special it’s the one we call our own
No matter how far away our lives may let us roar
We’ve still got Mamaw’s kitchen in the kitchen we are home

Stepping out the back door to gather what you need
Thyme and sage and corriander a pinch of dill weed
Making friends with the rolling pin knowing where to stand
Learning all the recipes you can only learn by hand

They say that the kitchen is the heart of every home
And this one is special it’s the one we call our own
No matter how far away our lives may let us roar
We’ve still got Mamaw’s kitchen in the kitchen we are home

Flour as a weapon of mass destruction when it spills
Hounds begging for every scrap and mopping at your heels
Laughing about the last time we were all gathered here
And every time before that peeling back the years

She’s still over my shoulder in that kitchen now and then
She’s been gone for ages but I remember way back when
Hold on to her traditions in every memory
And I keep my kitchen in the name of all that she taught me

She always said the kitchen is the heart of every home
And this old house still filled with her
The kitchen’s now my own
The back door’s always open so if you feel alone
I’ll be in Mamaw’s kitchen in the kitchen we are home
