lyrics

Kentucky Hills

I remember well when you were just a boy
Them old Kentucky hills are where you found your joy
But years stack up just like they do and choices stack up too
One day they all catch up with you with a ruthless point to prove

I want you to always know
That I’ve been praying and I’ll keep praying
’til my days are done
Honey, you got so much to lose
You’re someone’s daddy, someone’s honey
And you’re my son

Forty years gone by, this life you have to own
Trying to play daddy over a truck-stop telephone
But I still see great hope for you, I keep a candle burning bright
And when your deamons come knocking at your front door
Oh won’t you trust in the Holy Savior’s might

I want you to always know
That I’ve been praying and I’ll keep praying
’til my days are done
Honey, you got so much to lose
You’re someone’s daddy, someone’s honey
And you’re my son

Oh you love Jesus, but you’ve wandered far and wide
Drinking too much whiskey and you get so sad
Your eyes betray how tender your soul has stayed
Through all the trouble, all the trouble that you’ve had

I want you to always know
That I’ve been praying, I’ll keep on praying
But honey, you got so much to lose
You’re someone’s daddy, someone’s honey
And you’re my son
