American Aquarium – Old North State lyrics
This ain't for the faint or the weak of heart
This ain't for the ones who walked away
Just to quit while they're ahead
These boys they are my blood
Like old friends from a war
They've seen me at my worst
This life it takes it's toll
And everyday it gets harder and harder to justify
These dead head drives from Tulsa
But everything's gonna be okay soon as I cross that state line

When the morning light shines through the branches on the pines
Carolina I'm coming home

I ain't seen my bed in months
But there's a girl that keeps it warm
As she cries herself to sleep
While I'm out here on the road
Blue Ribbon cans and one night stands and parked cars with girls that know all the words
I always hurt the ones that I love
And I'll spend the rest of my life paying for the pain I put her through
But I swear I'll right these wrongs
And everything is gonna be okay as soon as I cross that state line

When the morning light shines through the branches on the pines
Carolina I'm coming home

And here's to the land of the long leaf pine
The summer land where the sun doth shine
Where the weak grows strong
And the strong grow great
The old north state

When the morning light shines through the branches on the pines
Carolina I'm coming home
