Let the light shine, on my momma, she's been worried bout me and I can tell
She's tired. walk my brother, in a straight line, I know he's only 16 but
He's been playing with fire.
Give my grandpa, a little peace and quiet. I can feel the years of hardwork
In his hands. make my days past, just a little bit slower, I've been runnin
So fast I've forgotten who I am.
So I go where the green grass grows, the weeds are high and the sun hangs
Low, look to the sky and I say hello, like it's the very first time. it
Doesn't matter how long it's been I can talk to god like he's my best friend.
Take my heart and lay it down again right there in a dirt road prayer.
He's a good guy. looks me dead in the eye and I wonder if he made him just
For me? but before I fall give me patience until you show me where to take
This.
yeah I go where the green grass grows, the weeds are high and the sun
Hangs low, look to the sky and I say hello, like it's the very first time.
It doesn't matter how long it's been, I can talk to god liks he's my best
Friend. take my heart and lay it down again right there in a dirt road
Prayer.
It's good to know. I can, always go where the green grass grows, weeds are
High and the sun hangs low, look to the sky and I say hello. ohh yeahh.
Doesn't matter how long it's been I can talk to god like he's my best friend.
Take my heart and lay it down again right there. in a dirt road prayer.
In a road prayer... (oh yeah)
