Lyrics

She was thirty years something when she crossed the line
Between southern Virginia and North Carolina
She was running away from a broken heart
With two sleeping children in the back of the car

The man she had promised her whole life to
Had told her that he'd found somebody new
Part of her wished she could lay down and die

I've got three good reasons to survive
One is eight years old
And one will soon be turning five
The third one is a woman
Who still has her pride
And that makes three good reasons to survive

She called some friends up in Rocky Mount
Who said they'd be glad to help her out
They put her and the children in the spare bedroom
She promised she'd find her own place soon
And she thanked 'em for their help
And said softly to herself

I've got three good reasons to survive
One is eight years old
And one will soon be turning five
The third one is a woman
Who still has her pride
And that makes three good reasons to survive

Now she's made a brand new home
Her laughter's back, her tears are gone
If you ask what made her strong
She'll just smile and say

I had three good reasons to survive
One is eight years old
And one has just turned five
The third one is a woman
Who never lost her pride
And that makes three good reasons to survive.
Oh I had three good reasons to survive

Three good reasons
To survive
Oh,three good reasons to survive
