my lyricsbox
Out between here and kingdom come
Is the place where I am from
It's not close to anywhere
Every call's long distance there
Two lane highway, one red light
Sidewalks that roll up at night
It's not much but it's my home
Out between here and kingdom come

Big double bed hanging on chains
When it start to swing the whole house shakes
Drifting off to sleep underneath the moon
Don't you know we've got it good
That old hoot owl singing his tune
Through the window comes a sweet perfume
Train going by, beating like a drum
Out between here and kingdom come

I know why the tom cat prowls
Walking all the way from town
Just to watch a summer storm
Laying out in my front yard
It's June bug time and we're drinking wine
All lit up like fireflies
He's got a bottle, give me some
Out between here and kingdom come

Out between here and kingdom come
Years are passing, one by one
Land of cotton, land of dreams
Nothing is quite what it seems
Old people's stories well they ring so true
Memories piling up on you
You can leave but you're never gone
Out between here and kingdom come
This song is from the album "Roadside Attractions".
