Track Name: Missouri Took My Love Away
(Verse)
I'm sittin on my porch alone, shivering and cold
longin for my girl, whose hand I love to hold
my darlin was the prettiest, surely I was blessed
but now I'm stuck here all alone, cause she done gone and left

(Pre chorus)
It was nothing that I did, and there was nothing I could sayit was
Missouri that took my love away

(Chorus)
Missouri took my love away
I begged and begged but she just wouldn't stay
Missouri took my love away
but I swore to her I'd write her every day

(Verse)
I got myself a ginger, sweetest in the bunch
I took her out for dinner, she came and made me lunch
We talked all night and stayed awake all through a summer's eve
But then morning came round, and it was time for her to leave

(Pre Chorus)
It wasn't cancer or lyme disease, and it sure as hell wasn't AIDS
It was Missouri, that took my love away.
(Chorus)

(Verse)
Now I've met lots of fine young girls, but they just can't compare
To the feelings that go through me when I touch her copper hair
I wrote her this song to tell her just how much she meant
but by the time I finished, she already went

(Pre Chorus)
No it wasn't the blacks, or the hispanics or the gays,
It was Missouri that took my love away

(Chorus)
Missouri took my love away
I begged and begged but she just wouldn't stay
Missouri took my love away
but I swore to her I'd write her every day


Yeah, God Bless America!
