Down This Road - Lyrics

Been away much longer than I would of liked
Got caught up in that nine to five
Ain't seen my mama in too many nights
But I'm coming home, down this road

And I drive past the postman who still knows my name
Hearin' those old church bells, seems little has changed
And all those city lights never made me feel this way
As I go down this road, oh down this road

Got my apartment on the 17th floor
Livin' off coffee and the promise of more
Seems I've forgotten what all this livin' is for
But I'm coming home, just a small town girl

And I roll down my window, let the sunshine in
Smile at the creek where I had my first kiss
No matter where I go there's always happiness
When I go down this road, oh down this road

And I find that sometimes
This heart cries for home

And I know that I'll be headed back soon
To the fast pace I've grown used to
But this time goin' doesn't mean leavin'
Cause this place will always be with me

And I get to my driveway see my Daddy there
Seems like he's grown a few more grey hairs
And time can't change the fact that I'm his little girl
As I go down this road, down this road

(Whoa and) I step out the car back into my own skin
Smile at the house that I grew up in
No matter where I go there's always happiness when
I go down this road, down this road
