lyrics

A FEW OF THE PLACES

Dixie Burch / James Burch / Maia Sharp

I get myself in trouble when she leaves me alone
Look at Oklahoma City, Aberdeen
Long before we were ever written in stone
She didn’t think to run from what she’d seen

The Jack and cocaine
The wrecking train she was falling for
Who liked to play with fire
I would’ve gone up
If she wasn’t so good at calling me
Down from the high wire

Hell, jail, wrapped around a tree
Lost, crossed over to the wrong side of me
Just a few of the places I would be

I’m waking up in San Antonio
But not like 11 years before
When we were waiting for the justice of the peace to show
No, we’re not those kids anymore

Rained on us then, raining again
Guess God is just making sure
We remember our start
That only the clouds are gonna part
And I know where I’d be without her

Hell, jail, wrapped around a tree
Lost, crossed over to the wrong side of me
Out of control, in the cold trying to set my soul free
Just a few of the places I would be
Just a few of the places I would be
Just a few of the places I would be
