My Thanksgiving Song

Here's a song I wrote for you all to sing when you all get 'round the table next Thursday, to the tune of We Gather Together:

Thank you for turkey and plenty of stuffing
Of giblets, chopped onion and bread, sage, and thyme
And mashed potatoes, marshmallows, sweet potatoes
Hot gravy and carrots and corn and green beans.

Thank you for hot buttered rolls, jam, and jelly
Glass dishes of celery and pickles and beets.
We all will make merry with sauces of cranberry
And if there’s still room, we will have pumpkin pie.

Thank you for friends and our family here gathered
For all of our blessings, protection divine
For these years of living we all are thanks-giving
For whipped cream and hot coffee and cold pumpkin pie.
