The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Journey To The Center Of Your Heart lyrics

(Guitars intro)

Well, you walked that valley's grassy floor and climbed that hilly ridge

You stood there naked stung with fear and tippy-toed on the edge

Well, you swung on a vine, you crawled in the dirt and made the river your best friend

You ate ev'rything from a skunk to perch and filled me up with Zen

Well, you went to acapella and you sang Acapulco, danced on a coin

You tied six Mexicans up in chains, then hitch-hiked to Des Moines

You put the tube in the tub when you joined a club, and took the soles off your shoes

But, baby, there's one thing you forgot to do

You got to love me

More than the trees and stars high above me

You got to love me,

Love me,

Love me all the time,

If you wanna be mine

(whhheeeewww....)

Well, you turned my pockets inside out and my inside upside down

Took fourteen reds and shaved your head and let a semi run you down

You filed your teeth and chromed your feet, shot a fifteen under par

Prayed thirteen days in eighteen ways then gurued in a bar

Well you slipped me a Mickey and you read James Dickey, drank up all my wine

You did all that then drowned a bat and bought a Wurlitzer on time

You ate barbecued stork with a spoon and a fork in a second-hand fun'ral plot,

But baby, there's one thing that you forgot

You got to love me

More than the trees and stars high above me

You got to love me,

Love me,

Love me all the time,

If you want to be mine

(Mandolin solo)

[spoken during the mandolin solo and the last chorus:]

I've been alone a long time now, and it seems like forever
It's not that I wanna be
It's just that all them things in there, together - bother me
Guess it's culture
Ahhhhhhhh
If you'd only come back
Figure this thing out
I guess it keeps going on here
I'm runnin' outta breath, death...

You got to love me

More than the trees and stars high above me

You got to love me,

Love me,

Love me all the time...
