I Was (LP Version)

I Was (LP Version)

Neal McCoy

Drove up from a rivertown, it was late September early October
Thought maybe I could clear my mind and see the leaves turn red
Tunes up and the window down
On the skyline drive when she flagged me over
?Hallelujah what a beautiful morning?
Were the first words that she said
Her eyes were blue as the sky on a perfect blue ridge day
She said, ?I could use a lift if you're going my way?, and

I was, I was headed south, I was headed out
Headed nowhere or anywhere we wanted to go
The road stretched out in front of us
And she was ready to run it just like I was

Told me she was twenty-two
And she'd just broken out of William and Mary
Another summer under Daddy's roof that was all that she could do
Her boyfriend, she cut him loose
Too cold for a wedding in January
She said, ?That's enough about me now tell me about you?
I rambled on about broken hearts and staying too long
She said, ?I'm sorry, but you were right to move on?, and

I was, I was headed south, I was headed out
Headed nowhere or anywhere we wanted to go
The road stretched out in front of us
And she was ready to run it just like I was

Ain't it funny how everything hinges on a twist of fate
She held my hand and said aren't you amazed and

I was, I was headed south, I was headed out
Headed nowhere or anywhere we wanted to go
The road stretched out in front of us
And she was ready to run it just like I was
