Illinois

  • I come from the heart of the Heartland
    Where pictures shows where the corn grows
    In rows and rows of summer greens
    And winter snows
    And it goes on
    Through the crack of the bat
    Oh everybody rollin' out their welcome mat
    And our hands on our heart under the stars of the Friday night flag

    And oh the heart will wander
    Beyond that wild blue yonder
    When I get lost in the noise like a whisper I hear the voice of the boy
    Oh from Illinois

    I remember the first time
    I saw that name on the marquee sign
    Lights so bright could almost make you blind
    I'd get lost in
    Sweet girls singin' along
    Buses rollin' on in the silver dawn
    Seein' the world a long, long way from home

    And oh the heart will wander
    Beyond that wild blue yonder
    When I get lost in the noise like a whisper I hear the voice of the boy
    Oh from Illinois

    It's water through my blood
    It's the place I got my roots
    It's the fire that's in my soul
    It's the mud that's on my boots
    Oh Illinois

    And oh the heart will wander
    Beyond that wild blue yonder
    When I get lost in the noise like a whisper I hear the voice of the boy
    Oh from Illinois
    from Illinois
    Oh, oh, Illinois
    Takes me back, Illinois
    Take me home, take me home, take me home
    I come from the heart of the Heartland, Illinois Writer/s: BRAD CRISLER, BRETT ELDREDGE, TOM DOUGLAS
