Tuesday Tunes - 12/4/12

A great lyric is like a great book...

That Ol' Wind

Garth Brooks, Artist
Leigh Reynolds, Writer 

She dropped her boy at school on time,
One less worry on her mind,
Now it's off to work and on the radio.
Come's an old familiar song,
And then the D.J.'s voice comes on,
And say's he's back in town tonight for one last show.

Her eyes well up with tears.
God could it be it's been ten years,
Since that Autumn night outside the county fair?
When two strangers shared a night,
And in the darkness found a light,
That to this day is still alive and burning there.

He asked her twice to come along.
They said good-bye at the break of dawn.
'Cause you can't hold back the wind,
If it's meant to be again,
Then someday he'll find his way back to her arms.

The marquee misspelled his name,
And not too many people came.
But that didn't matter to the.
They laughed and loved all through the night,
And as they faced the morning light.
They found themselves standing there again.

And he asked her twice to come along.
They said good-bye at the break of dawn.
As his bus left out she cried,
With him standing by her side!
That ol' wind had once again found its way home.

Someday he'll tell her about the money he hid,
And someday she'll tell him that the boy is his kid!
But for right now they're both in love.
The only thing they're thinkin' of,
Is that they're finally where their hearts have always been.
