George Jones4th Of July

Alone with the morning burnin red On the canvas in my head Painting a picture of you and me Driving across country In a dusty old RV Just the road and it's majesty And I'm lookin' at you with the world in the rear-view You were pretty as can be sittin' in the front seat Lookin' at me, tellin' me you love me And you're happy to be with me on the Fourth of July We sang "Stranglehold" 'til stereo couldn't take no more of that rock 'n' roll So we put on a little George Jones and just sang along Those white lines can drone into the sun If you ain't got no one to keep you hangin' on But there you were like a queen in your night gown Ridin' shotgun from town to town Staking a claim on the world we found And I'm singin' to you, you're singin' to me You were out of the blue to a boy like me And I'm lookin' for you and the silence that we shared © 2019
