APALACHEE PLAIN

Is it wrong to call your name
On the Apalachee Plain
When I know it’s been called
A thousand times
If at all
Is it wrong
To call your name
Once again

Wishing’s easy
If you try
Don’t get bogged down
And don’t you cry
If it comes true
So be it
And if it don’t just believe it
To be the way
That it always
Ought to be

Mustangs kicking in the field
I saw it all behind the wheel
But it woulda never had that feel
If you weren’t right there at my heels
Holding up
Your end
Of the bargain

So how about you lean on in
Just this one time give me that grin
The one I first saw laying in bed
With your hair about our heads
When the sky it was deserted

In the space of a couple lines
I’m reminded from time to time
You were in and throughout
Before the flood, before the drought
Before the sunlit garden grew
Before the ashes filled the tombs

No there ain’t nothing
I can change about me now
No there ain’t nothing
I can change about me now
No there ain’t nothing
I can change about me now
