A country song…

GOODBYE INDIANA

 

Goodbye Indiana

A long way from Alabama

I’m finally headed off to Tennessee

 

It’s been a really long time

That I’ve been towing that line

I’m finally doing something just for me

 

The lyrics are inside me

For years and years did I see

My words could make you laugh and cry and pray

 

Now it’s me who is giving

Through the songs I write of living

I hope I touch your heart a certain way

 

Yeah, I’ve been waiting for this

My entire life

I’ve raised my kids as best I can

With every sacrifice

And if I never make it

Well, then that will be okay

I’ve done what very few have done

Putting lyrics on a page

Yeah, I…..have made that change

 

Alone and dwelling on the memories

Running through my mind

Looking back I see some things

In sadness that remind

 

Me of all the wasted years

I’ve kept it all inside

I wonder where’d I’d be right now

If I hadn’t had to hide

 

Yeah, I’ve been waiting for this

My entire life

I’ve raised my kids as best I can

With every sacrifice

And if I never make it

Well, then that will be okay

I’ve done what very few have done

Putting lyrics on a page

Yeah, I…..have made that change

 

So if you see my name

On a cd case

I hope that you remember me

And this song of embrace

 

Cause in the end

Yes, it’s all true

The turmoil that I’ve seen

 

But that’s not all

There’s lots of love

That’s been inside of me

 

Yeah, I’ve been waiting for this

My entire life

I’ve raised my kids as best I can

With every sacrifice

And if I never make

Well, then that will be okay

I’ve done what very few have done

Putting lyrics on a page

Yeah, I…..have made that change

 

Goodbye Indiana

A long way from Alabama

I’m finally headed off to Tennessee
