Eric Bachmann - So Long, Savannah lyrics

So long Savannah Ive been leaving you too long
A coward Ive been wasting time finding reasons to hang on
With powder ropes I hung my hopes safe and sound from failures fall
The kind of friend who does you in ain't no friend at all

How far up the river did you slither did you crawl
Before muddy waters took you under to the salt
Mines on the delta to the shelter safe from harm
Cooing in the driving rain running back into your mamas arms

Sometimes there's no reasons and sometimes there is no feeling at all
Some come front in believing they cant leave behind the place they fall
So farewell Savannah though it hurts to leave you so
You may be one fine lover friend but you could never be my home
You could never be my home
