Indiana's Angel

Album: Modern Day Prodigal Son (2009)
  • Grew up one state North of Kentucky
    A Family far from rollin' in the money
    7 brothers and sisters to feed and love
    Granddaddy said she kept her eyes on the sky,
    Watching all the little birds fly
    Staring at heaven like her lost home
    None of her dreams held fame and fortune
    She wanted a husband and children that loved her

    Spreading' her wings her feet left ground In Indian
    Driving down south just to marry my daddy
    Leaving the life she'd known and loved behind
    She never cussed or drank, kept on the table
    Hell, I kept her on her knees in prayer
    She's a God sent blessing wiling and able
    As Indiana's angel

    Baby back home your daddy's dying
    Ã????bout then the kind of perfect timing,
    Walked in with liquor on my breath
    I sit and watch all of her tears glisten
    She said, "Son you'll learn to listen,
    A man stands taller from his knees"
    Now I'll never forget how much that hurt
    She said, "Son one day I'll be gone you wont have to hear these words"

    Spreading' her wings her feet left ground In Indian
    Driving down south just to marry my daddy
    Leaving the life she'd known and loved behind
    She never cussed or drank, kept on the table
    Hell, I kept her on her knees in prayer
    She's a God sent blessing wiling and able
    As Indiana's angel
    Indian's Angel

    Spreading' her wings her feet left ground In Indian
    Driving down south just to marry my daddy
    Leaving the life she'd known and loved behind
    She never cussed or drank, kept on the table
    Hell, I kept her on her knees in prayer
    She's a God sent blessing wiling and able
