Lyric Far Away


Fields are deathly silent
Where the cotton used to grow
I m a stranger in a land
That I used to know
A land, a land I ve not forgotten
Look away, far away

Everything is changin
Cept some things inside me
I ve hid them from the world
Kept them under lock and key
Like the sound of my mama s voice
Calling me back home
To the place where I belong

Far away, far away
Don t know why I ve left here
Look how long I ve stayed
Far away, far away
How d I get so far away?

Carved my name on Sunday mornin
On a sweet magnolia tree
I cried when I walked away
It broke my heart to leave
Took that little piece of it
And put it in my pocket
I ve lost myself a time or two
But I ain t never forgot it
Far away, far away
How d I get so far away?

Far away, far away
How d I get so far away?
How did I get so far away?
