Marcia Ball – Between Here And Kingdom Come lyrics

Out between here and kingdom come
Is the place I come from
It's not close to any where
Every call's long distance there

Two lane highway and one red light
Sidewalks that roll up at night
It's not much but it's my home
Out between here and kingdom come

Big double bed hanging from chains
When it starts to swing the whole house shakes
Drifting off to sleep under neath the moon
Don't you know we got it good

That old hoot owl he's singing his tune
Through the window comes the sweet perfume
Trains going by, beating like a drum
Out between here and kingdom come

I know why the tom cat prowls
Walking all the way from town
Just to watch a summer storm
Laying out in my front yard
It June bug time but we're drinking wine
All lit up like fireflies
He's got a bottle, give me some
Out between here and kingdom come
Out between here and kingdom come

Years are passing one by one
Land of cotton, land of dreams
Nothing is quite what it seems
Old people's stories but they ring so true
Memories piling up on you
You can leave but you're never gone
Out between here and kingdom come
