Verse 1:
She was sittin’ down at the river
Watching the clouds roll by
Daddy said “One day baby
You’ll have to spread your wings and fly”
Momma and daddy were good folks
But they did not understand
So she started chasing rainbows
Just to clear her head
And the ties that bind
Hurt her more
Than the road that lay ahead Chorus:
And she said I’m leaving
And it’s gonna be alright
There’s a Bible on the nightstand
And I’m ready for the fight
Scars will fade and the memories remain
But the pain will make it rightVerse 2:
Well she met a man one sunny day
He said “There’s no one like you”
So she fell in love and swore on her grave that she’d
Be there the whole way through
All she wanted was only forever
And he just couldn’t explain
How the way she moved lit up the room
But it caused him so much pain
Eyes in the rearview she bowed her head
And wondered if it ain’t all the sameChorus:
And she said I’m leaving
And it’s gonna be alright
There’s a Bible on the nightstand
And I think I know what’s right
I’ve learned by now to feel no pain
And it’s just a part of lifeInstVerse 3:
Well she was still chasing rainbows
Running from the storms trapped in her mind
To her surprise when she reached the end
There was no gold in sight
Now she’s all alone and her house is no home
But there’s a spark left in her eye
Now she’s sittin’ down at the river
Watching the clouds roll by
Her old wrinkled hand searching
For the gun by her sideChorus:
And she said I’m leaving
And it’s gonna be alright
There’s a Bible on the nightstand
And I can see a light
Right on top of the world
With all the stars out that night
That river keeps running through her dreams
Everything’s gonna be alright
