Dogwood

Dancing on a creek bank


Blue eyes and auburn hair


It was the best years of our lives


We didn’t have a care


Going 90 miles an hour


A truck and an old dirt road


Two young ass kids


Back where the dogwood flowers grow

Then graduation came


You was big city bound


I wasn't going nowhere fast


So I just hung around


By the next time I seen you
Your love had grown cold


So I guess you broke my heart


Back where the dogwood flowers grow

White on the bloom


That April moon
It could have been forever darlin’ had we stayed together


But you had to go


Time don’t slow


It took further from your home


Back where the dogwood flowers grow

So I took to drinking
I guess you wouldn’t recognize me


My souls been torn and twisted


Like that old dogwood tree


We used to talk about forever


But that was a million miles ago


So I’ll see ya if I see ya


Back where the dogwood flowers grow

White on the bloom


That April moon


When You ain’t dead set on leavin


and you miss the one your needin


Just grit and grin


And remember when


You had that hand to hold


Back where the dogwood flowers grow
