Go On Back

from by Arthur Alligood

lyrics

Walk she would
through the pines
cross the road
down that red dirt drive
Dangling stars
in the night
just like the sun
born on fire
Knocking on the door
of that double wide

Chorus
You got no need honey
for me baby
I got one need honey
and it ain't you
Go on back
Go on back

Her Momma was a queen
Her Daddy a peasant
down begging at her feet
She was the youngest in line
with wandering eyes
two brothers in college and a sister
who'd died
She went knocking on the door
of that double wide

Bent and bleeding
on a try
house as empty
as her sister's smile
Clouds hung like sheets
on the line
Nobody to talk her out
Nobody to put up a fight
She went knocking on the door of that double wide
Knocking on the door of that double wide
A fire only need one spark to fly
