  • One, two, three, four

    Out in the middle of nowhere
    With nothing much else to do
    Oh, the night brought us together
    And I lent my heart to you

    Maybe you were running way from something
    Without so much as a plan
    Not a living soul to guide you
    Jesus tattooed on your hand

    God, the whole world's gone crazy
    And there's only God to blame
    Somebody called you something sweet once
    It was more than Fulton County Jane

    And when my heart has no rest
    And a thousand things are on my mind
    I'll always save some room for you
    I won't let you get left behind

    Oh, and I always will remember
    When the lonely day is through
    That somewhere fall from Fulton County
    A stranger says a prayer for you

    God, the whole world's gone crazy
    And there's only God to blame
    Your mother calls you something sweet once
    It was more than Fulton County Jane
    Fulton County Jane

    We came into this life with nothing
    And all we're taking is a name
    That's why I've written you this song
    This is for Fulton County Jane

    God, the whole world's gone crazy
    And there's only God to blame
    Your mother called you something sweet once, darling
    You're more than Fulton County, Fulton County Jane
    Fulton County Jane

    Ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh

  • Sandra K Reed from San Antonio Floridahttps://bit.ly/3ofSXEx I know the song says Fulton County, but I did not want to not send it, just in case this child is the Jane Doe of your song. I am a retired command officer, and these are the cases that live with us forever, Thank you for writing her song. Whether or not this child is the one in your song, I thought you would like to know, this child made it home. We never stop looking, and always pray for miracles. Sandra K Reed, Retired Major, Pasco Sheriffs Office, Florida
