Story

Lyrics

Dirt Road

 

I have walked down prairies dirt roads

Knowing I won’t find

A trace or footprint left just

Dust that stings my

Eyes will search the long horizon

You I will not find

Tomorrow never comes here

Yesterday has died

 

Your smile captured this place

And sturdy lines drew your face

Sun filled up the sky

And what I saw clearly

The way that you’d remind me

Sun filled up the sky

 

I have walked down prairies dirt roads

Veins that feed my mind

Will rest on thoughts of you

Under these bluest skies

 

As your words fade away

My memory starts to fray

Clouds fill up the sky

What do I take with me

Some moral to this story

Clouds fill up the sky

 

As your breath leaves your mouth

Fire in your eyes burns out

Lightning breaks the sky

And what I’ll take with me

The part of you that will be

Lightning that breaks the sky
