July Sun

06:01

Lyrics

I heard you bought the farm in Nashville

Well, I hope you found what you were looking for

Though I may often still think about you

I know you just don't need me anymore

But as sure as the July sun will shine upon us

As sure as the burdens that we all bare

It's hard to keep a steady hand rolling

When you won't let go of the dice

 

I hope that your new love treats you nice and proper

I hope he's filthy rich, and tall, and strong

I'm sure he has plenty more to offer

Than hand-me-down boots and worn out songs

But as sure as the July sun will shine upon us

As sure as the burdens that we all share

It may be just around the next corner

But there's always another way of getting there

 

I must admit, I too found another

And I'm much better off than I've ever been

I don't want these words to sound bitter

For I'm glad that we both found happiness

As sure as the July sun will shine upon us

As sure as the burdens that we all bare

It's hard to keep a good thing going

And it's just as hard to say goodbye
