Outside my Window

Posted by JillLovato on 9th January 2013 in Country Lyrics

Outside my window is a thicket of woods
A barn owl calls, til light steals the night
Outside my window is a road
I read some of the signs
Private road, dead end, I keep off this road
Im afraid of whats at its end
Ma fell to a fever, never woke again
When I was young, Pa left on a moonshine run
Now I’m shaped like my Momma
Who knows how many years its been
Outside my window is laughter from a distant hollor
I imagion they’re dancing n drinkin moonshine
Once strangers, now they’re friends
No one knows about this house on the side of the hill
One one ever gets lost, or comes wonderin in
Just this fall a man came to call
I met him with my gun
He said: I wanna introduce myself
hopen we can be friends
See I bought the land, where yours ends
He’s gonna build a house, it can reach the sun
With a couple hundred houses, all with-in
He asked about the road, and all them signs
I said I didn’t know where it ends
laughin, said I’m kinda funny
That’s the road that brought me in
And where we’re standin, is the roads dead end
My mind couldn’t take it all in
Im gonna have to think on it again
Just outside my window, is a whole world
A place I’ve never been
Cause if that mans right
I’ve been sitten on my own dead end
If that mans right
But I’m gonna have to think on it again
