"What I'm Thankful For (The Thanksgiving Song)" as written by and Patricia Yearwood Garth Brooks....
[Verse 1: Garth Brooks]
What I'm thankful for ain't on no list
For it only in my heart exists
For time has helped me understand
The things I can't hold in my hand

[Verse 2:Brooks]
For those that came before my turn
Oh, from whom I've gathered lessons learned
That light the path that lies ahead
I see them as I bow my head

[Chorus: Brooks]
Yes, I'm thankful for the Lord above
The gift of His unending love
The promise kept that there is something more
These are the things I'm thankful for

[Verse 3: James Taylor]
For our children hear this prayer
Let love surround them everywhere
And may their children's children know
The one from whom all blessings flow

[Chorus: Taylor]
Yes, I'm thankful for the Lord above
The gift of His unending love
The promise kept that there is something more
These are the things I'm thankful for

[Bridge: Taylor and Brooks]
And amidst these gifts and presents
We receive this holiday
May we take a thoughtful second
Just to fold our hands and pray

[Chorus: Brooks]
Yes, I'm thankful for the Lord above
The gift of His unending love
The promise kept that there is something more
These are the things I'm thankful for
