Johnny Van Zant – Brickyard Road lyrics

Doesn't seem that long ago
Three of us walkin' down that road
Grey 55 Chevy, parked in the front yard
Little Melody tagged along
Those were the best days now they're gone

Oh it's been twelve years since it went down
Lord lost my best friend now
I can see him, fishin' on that old dock
I know I can't bring back yesterday
But oh Lord can you help me find my way
Down to Brickyard Road...Oh walk on down
Down to Brickyard Road...He's with me now
Swore I say a Free Bird fly
Ridin' the winds of the southern sky
When I hear that whistle blow
It carries me back
To Brickyard Road

Brother Do You Realize what you've done
Touched the hearts of everyone
You might've died too young
But your songs live on
I know I can't bring back yesterday
But we'll be all together, again some day

Down to Brickyard Road...Oh walk on down
Down to Brickyard Road...He's with me now
Swore I say a Free Bird fly
Ridin' the winds of the southern sky
When I hear that whistle blow
It carries me back
To Brickyard Road

Down to Brickyard Road...Oh walk on down
Down to Brickyard Road...He's with me now
Swore I say a Free Bird fly
Ridin' the winds of the southern sky
When I hear that whistle blow
It carries me back
To Brickyard Road

I can see him standin' on the dock
His old Chevy out in the front yard
Walk on down-walk on down
Momma and daddy's, doin' all right
Saw Melody last Saturday night
She's all grown up she's such a pretty girl
Things just ain't the same since you left our world
Oh Brickyard Road
Hear me now
I can see him, down on Brickyard Road

Swore I Saw A Free Bird Fly
Ridin' the winds of the southern sky
Down to Brickyard Road
On Brickyard Road
Oh Brickyard Road
Wanna go back

    Tribute to a lost loved one and the awesome memories that are left. After you go thru the mourning phase of losing them. To every time there is a season. And only memories remain after the pain. You decide if they will be good memories (as in this song) . Or bad memories of the bad times. Your choice. I love the bittersweet ones mentioned in this song. Rock you guitar players. Free bird was the song we played at my childrens fathers funeral. Very comforting! =)
