I know the sun comes

From the east

Can't see the wind

But I've seen it

Move the trees

You think

I move the mountains

With the hours

I spent praying

Down here on my knees

And when I reach

That golden road

All of the answers

To my questions will be told

I don't blame the garden

Or the apple that we took

I did the best I could

I know I've seen

An angel

You know it made me cry

So when I look

At heaven

Why do I keep asking


The answer's just a whisper

And flickers in the night

I think

the chicken's carsick.

Chicken's get carsick?


Why do I keep asking




Oh, hey.

Anything new at school?

Don't be mean.

- I was serious.

- So was I.

I'm switching from agriscience

to robotics.

Bringing a chicken to school

was nothing but trouble.

Hey, don't bring that thing

through the kitchen.

Health inspector.

Dead chicken, yes.

Live chicken, no.

He can ride

home in the car with me.

Hey, Valentina.

- Hi, Valentina.

- Hey, y'all.


Hey, Li'l Clyde.

What's up, girls?

You know I've seen

An angel

You know it made me cry

So when I look

At heaven

Why do I keep asking


The answer's

Just a whisper

It flickers

In the night

So when I look

At heaven

Why do I keep asking




How was school?

Same ole, same ole.

- How about you, honey?

- Good.

Baby girl, didn't I see you

leave here this morning

with a chicken?

Ask Mama

what she did with him.

Sid's bringing by

more sweet potatoes on the 14th.

The 16th is Daddy's


Well, I'll make a cake.

We'll find a way

to make the day special.

I'm gonna go take my bath.

I ate at the caf.

I wish Mama would talk more

about Daddy.

Well, she's looking forward,

not backwards.

And he's with you

every step of every day.

I hope he's not as bored

as we are.

And y'all got your

singing voices from your daddy.

He used to sing

in his church choir

just like you two.

We're hoping

for bigger audiences

than Methodists, Meemaw.

Don't you be running down

local church folk.


What was Daddy's favorite color?


Green, I think.

You said blue

last time I asked.

He probably had a lot

of favorites.

- What you doing?


Yeah. Willie.

When the storms

of life Are raging

Stand by me

When the storms of life

Are raging

Stand by me

When the world

Is tossing me

Like a ship

Upon the sea

Thou who rulest

Wind and water

Stand by me

Thou who rulest

Wind and water

Stand by me


Get started on your schoolwork.

Your mama'll be back

- once that brunch crowd fed.


Oh, my Lord.

- Oh, Lordy, Lordy.

- Look at all that water.


Hey, that water pipe is busted.

- Where's the water coming from?

- One busted pipe made all this?

Let me get the...

Let me get the valve.


- Is it off?

I'm trying.

All right, here. Grab this.

- There you are.

- Give me one.

- All right. Hurry, hurry.

- There.

Got it?
