lifeblood: songs: three county highway


i drive a three county highway
and every one of them town's got a firework show
it's 4th of july and i'm just now
getting home
on the horizon i can see 'em all unfold
it's been a warm winter and a
cold spring
everywhere i've been has felt wrong to me
everything i kept
what i never should have thrown away
i wanted you for all those yesterdays

i was wishing for you one sunday morning
walking down the road in some debtors town
from every church a hymn
came blending in and
every one of them wanting to be found
did you say it took a long time to find
a lot less man and less harm done
did you say it took a long time to find
a handsome one to keep you young

one day i'm gonna make it up to you
one day we're gonna laugh instead of cry
one day i'm coming home to stay it's true
and baby
that's the last ticket i'm ever gonna buy

cause it's been a warm winter and a
cold spring
and everywhere i've been has felt wrong to me
so put your head on my heart
lay down in the crook of my arm
everything's okay
i've been found again
i've been found again
