Back Road Paradise

JIMMY RANKIN
PATRICIA CONROY
DERMOT GREHAN

BLACK CROW SITTING ON THE BARBED WIRE
TELEPHONE POLES FLASHING BY
SUN COMING UP LIKE A PRAYER ACROSS THE FIELD
I GOT THE WINDOWS ROLLED DOWN IN MY FORD TRUCK
I’M BREATHING IN THE DIRT AND DUST
OH MAN I LOVE THE WAY IT FEELS
OH THE WAY IT FEELS

CHORUS:
RAIN COMING DOWN ON A TIN ROOF
THE SOUND OF A SLOW FRIEGHT TRAIN PASSING BY
SIPPING ON A BEER IN THE COOL SHADE
THIS IS WHERE I’LL LIVE UNTIL I DIE
ON THIS BACK ROAD PARADISE

YOU CAN HAVE THOSE CITY NIGHTS
CONCRETE AND NEON LIGHTS
IT’S NOT FOR ME IT LEFT ME COLD
GIVE ME AN ACRE MAYBE TWO
A KITCHEN WINDOW WITH A WIDE VIEW
IT AINT MUCH BUT IT’S MY HOME
YEAH HOME SWEET HOME

CHORUS

CHORUS 2:
CRICKETS SINGING IN THE MOONLIGHT
THE SOUND OF A SLOW FREIGHT TRAIN ROLLING BY
PICKING OUT A SONG IN THE COOL SHADE
THIS IS WHERE I’LL LIVE UNTIL I DIE
YEAH SIPPING ON A BEER IN THE COOL SHADE
THIS IS WHERE I’LL LIVE UNTIL I DIE
ON THIS BACK ROAD PARADISE
BACK ROAD PARADISE
