Got her daddy’s eyes and her mama’s hair
That newborn baby lyin’ there
A grandpa holds his first grandchild
That’s a cryin’ smile

In another town there’s a long white dress
Little church crammed full to Sunday best
Bride’s father walks her down the aisle
That’s a cryin’ smile

It’s a goodbye kiss, first day of school
A doctor callin’ with a good news
A sinner standin’ in the pure
Getting born for the second time

It’s snapshots laid out on the floor
Or a loved one back home from the war
Makes tears fall like rain from a sunny sky
That’s a cryin’ smile

Forty years he punched that clock
For a pat on the back and a gold watch
They called it going out in style
That’s a cryin’ smile

It’s a goodbye kiss, first day of school
A doctor callin’ with a good news
A sinner standin’ in the pure
Getting born for the second time

It’s snapshots laid out on the floor
Or a loved one back home from the war
Makes tears fall like rain from a sunny sky
That’s a cryin’ smile

A nursin’ home has an empty bed
Four generations bow their heads
God welcomes home another child
Ain’t that a cryin’ smile?
