Holy Toledo

Album: Farmer's Daughter (2010)
  • Living life from day to day
    And reading books from page to page,
    I know life is just my stage
    And I wish I could, I said I would,
    I know I should do something good
    And my God, I fear I'm shedding tears,
    The colors change from year to year
    'Round here

    And I said
    How do I, get to Heaven from here,
    I wanna know how do I
    Get to Heaven from here

    Holy Toledo, where does the time go
    My dreads are locked,
    My watch is stopped,
    My glass half full, my gun is half-cocked
    Mm Holy Toledo, oh

    Now I've said too much, I'm losing touch
    Step on the gas and off the clutch
    Mm oh, I'm gonna leave Toledo,
    Have no fear and time goes slow
    But I'm shifting gears

    And I said
    How do I get to Heaven from here,
    Well I wanna know how do I
    Get to Heaven from here

    Holy Toledo, where does the time go
    My dreads are locked,
    My watch is stopped,
    My glass are full, my gun is half-cocked
    How do I redeem my sins
    Well, I sure hope
    St. Peter's gonna let me in
    Holy Toledo

    Said how do I get to Heaven from here,
    I wanna know how in the hell
    Am I gonna get to Heaven from here

    Holy Toledo, where does the time go
    My dreads are locked,
    My watch is stopped,
    My glass are full, my gun is half-cocked
    How do I redeem my sins
    When I come around and knock
    St. Peter better let me in
    Holy Toledo
    And I said how do I get to Heaven from here Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
