Long after the last train rolled out of town
I had to find out if the world was round
So I left Louisiana, big city bound
Looking for god knows what

Mama gave me her bible and choked back the tears
Said, girl, it so easy to get lost out there
Every night I'll remember you in my prayers
While you're looking for god knows what

God knows what I was after
God knows what was on my mind
Every step I took fell faster
Everything I left behind
Turned into the greener pastures
What will I find after all this time
Coming back from god knows what

Pride tastes bitter and dreams die hard
It's tough to admit but at least that's a start
Took along way around but that old backyard
Beats the devil out of god knows what

God knows what I was after
God knows what was on my mind
Every step I took fell faster
Everything I left behind
Turned into the greener pastures
What will I find after all this time
Coming back from god knows what

I was after
God knows what was on my mind
Every step I took fell faster
Everything I left behind
Turned into the greener pastures
What will I find after all this time
Coming back from god knows what

God knows what (god knows what)
God knows what
