1. I would pick and we would sing to the rhythm of that front porch swing,
the moonlight holds the spotlight that we shared.
I found new notes on that old guitar, she believed I could be a star,
she told me that she wanted to be fair.
2. She said, love will only hold you down, boy you're glory bound,
we can't share a world with different dreams.
So I chased mine and she found hers too,
but someone else made hers come true,
now I'm a star, but every time I sing.

My heart goes drifting down a dusty dixie road,
taking my mind, back in time.
L.A. lights burn like hell once you know,
you left heaven waitin' down the dixie road.
2.Every night I'm in a different place and I'm searching every stranger's face,
trying to find the girl that's just not there.
She's back there in Montegomery, and I'm clear across the country,
but whenever I'm alone I go back there.
+ CHORUS + CHORUS ....(capo 1st)
