Kevin Gordon - Don't Stop Me This Time (At Music City Roots) (Live) lyrics


Tall pines and blue skies
I heard a song when the sound went by
Knew I had to have it in my hands
Bought an old guitar, Salvation Army store
Banging it out in a garage band
I got older, strapping that plank on my shoulder
It’s miles and miles of the give and take
Get home, fall back in the comfort zone
Count the cash and stack the plates
Feed the wolf and say a little grace

Hold on, don’t stop me this time
Don’t stop me this time
There’s daylight ahead

Straight whiskey and ripped jeans
I stared at her staring back at me
She was leaning on the balustrade
What a giver, took me all the way in to the river
The water’s warm, the current’s tame
Washed by love, forever changed

Hold on, don’t stop me this time
Don’t stop me this time
There’s daylight ahead

Now the old man wants to know
How I’ll get my children grown
on a poet’s hope, and a pauper’s wage
He said you’ve had your fun
It’s time you grew up, son
Time to put those dreams away

Hold on, don’t stop me this time
Don’t stop me this time
There’s daylight ahead
