Shawn Colvin – Someday lyrics

There ain't a lot that you can do in this town.
Drive down to the lake and then you turn back around.
Go to school and learn to read and write.
So you can walk into the county bank and sign away your life.

I work at the fillin' station on the Interstate.
Pumpin' gasoline and countin' out of state plates.
They ask me how far into Memphis girl, and where's the nearest beer.
They don't even know that there's a town around here.

Someday I'm finally gonna let go.
I know there's a better way.
I wanna know what's over that rainbow.
I'm gonna get out of here someday.
Someday.

Now my brother went to college cause he plays football.
Me I never even got through High School at all.
I got me a 67 Chevy, she's low and sleek and black.
Someday I'll put her on the Interstate and never look back.

Someday I'm finally gonna let go.
I know there's a better way.
I wanna know what's over that rainbow.
I'm gonna get out of here some,
I'm gonna get out of here someday.
Someday, someday.
