(Rhett Akins/Bruce Burch/Vern Dant)

I guess she caught that plane early this morning
'Cause that "I've decided to stay" call never came
And right about now Lord she's nearly back to Asheville
I'm staring out at a south Georgia rain
Wonderin' if I'll ever touch her again

If there were only miles between us
I'd be there in a good days drive
But the last time I held her
I saw the distance in her eyes
She once crossed the Blue Ridge Mountains
And swore that she'd be mine
But she never brought her heart across
The Carolina line

She always said this place felt just like home
But she had memories she never did unpack
And even in my arms holdin' me close
She never let go of the past
Or the one who kept callin' her back

If there were only miles between us
I'd be there in a good days drive
But the last time I held her
I saw the distance in her eyes
She must have missed those Blue Ridge Mountains
Or someone she left behind
'Cause I never got her heart across
The Carolina line

When she crossed the Blue Ridge Mountains
ANd left me here behind
Lord knows she took my heart across
That Carolina line
