I Didn't Come This Far (Just To Walk Away)

I Didn't Come This Far (Just To Walk Away)

Aaron Tippin

I made five hundred miles in six hours flat
Trying to make up for lost time
I been beatin' a path to your mama's door
To set things between us right
Between the hands of fate and a lot of hard luck
This ain't been no gravy train
And I didn't come this far just to walk away

I slung a rod just east of Memphis
And that heap of a truck shut down
So for nine cold hours I thumbed my way
Straight to the guitar town
And the last twelve miles to your mama's house
I hiked through the pouring rain
And I didn't come this far just to walk away

I could have turned around a thousand times
And went back to where I'm from
But I'd go an extra million miles
If I could save what's left of us
Oh, it was a burning love that drove me here
And girl I hope and pray
That I didn't come this far just to walk away

I know that this front door ain't the only thing
That stands between you and me
All the things that I've said, and the wrong that I've done
Ain't undone easily
But I'm gonna prove my love to you
No matter what it takes
'Cause I didn't come this far just to walk away

Oh, I could have turned around a thousand times
And went back to where I'm from
But I'd go an extra million miles
If I could save what's left of us
Oh, it was a burning love that drove me here
And girl I hope and pray
That I didn't come this far just to walk away

Oh, I didn't come this far just to walk away
