Pushing Back the Dark Clouds

by John Lyes
(Ohio)

Lost n' lonely no more, cost many months of joy
Come on take my hand, just go on and say it
Why'd you leave me like that, stuck at the altar?
Drove off in my blue ol' Chevrolet
Mama told me just how cold it could get
Never thought it'd be you I bet

I'm, looking for the dawn of my heart
Pushing back the dark clouds
Letting the rain wash over me
Walking down the back roads of my heart

When it comes to you, I know it can't be true
Just how the June bugs sing to me
Not blue, not weather-beaten yet
Calling out to the echoes
Mama told me just how cold it could get
Never thought it'd be you I bet

So, I'm looking for the dawn of my heart
Pushing back the dark clouds
Letting the rain wash over me
Walking down the back roads of my heart

And when the wind blows off the plains
I'll be in Texas is tattered jeans
Showing off my good side to the good ol' boys
There'll be such a ruckus in the ruck house
Mama told me just how cold it could get
Never thought it'd be you I bet

I'm, looking for the dawn of my heart
Pushing back the dark clouds
Letting the rain wash over me
Walking down the back roads of my heart

Repeat
