Starting Over

Album: Starting Over (2020)
  • Well the road rolls out like a welcome mat
    To a better place than the one we're at
    And I ain't got no kinda plan
    But I've had all of this town I can stand
    And I got friends out on the coast
    We can jump in the water and see what floats
    We've been saving for a rainy day
    Let's beat the storm and be on our way

    It don't matter to me
    Wherever we are is where I wanna be
    And, honey, for once in our life
    Let's take our chances and roll the dice
    I can be your lucky penny
    You can be my four-leaf clover
    Starting over

    This might not be an easy time
    There's rivers to cross and hills to climb
    Some days we might fall apart
    And some nights might feel cold and dark
    When nobody wins afraid of losing
    And the hard roads are the ones worth choosing
    Some day we'll look back and smile
    And know it was worth every mile

    It don't matter to me
    Wherever we are is where I wanna be
    And, honey, for once in our life
    Let's take our chances and roll the dice
    I can be your lucky penny
    You can be my four-leaf clover
    Starting over
    Starting over

    It don't matter to me
    Wherever we are is where I wanna be
    And, honey, for once in our life
    Let's take our chances and roll the dice
    I can be your lucky penny
    You can be my four-leaf clover
    Starting over
    Starting over

  • Anita L. Richey from Old Hickory,tn I love the song! Your wife and you are amazing together.
  • Richard Eames from Boca Raton, FloridaA brilliant song and lyrics. I love it so much, I'm giving my wife a Lincoln 1909 S VDB penny mounted in a bezel, and giving myself a real 4 leaf clover, mounted in a sealed container, both on chains to wear every day. This song describes our feeling completely. After 30 years of marriage I cheated on her, and she forgave me. I never knew the depth of the love she has for me, and I for her. I did not deserve her forgiveness. Thank you Chris Stapleton, for writing and sharing this song!
