So I Sang

Album: Southern Style (2015)
  • I never was the biggest or the fastest guy
    I never hit a homerun when the game was tied
    I knew from an early age I wasn't going to be
    A doctor or the CEO of anything

    So I sang, She Believes In Me
    And I played, Fire On The Mountain
    'Til I made my fingers bleed
    I tried to stand out from the crowd
    But most times I just struck out at the plate
    So I sang

    I wasn't cool enough to be a ladies man
    It took me forever just to hold her hand
    First time we kissed, she whispered, I love you
    But I wasn't brave enough to say, I loved her too

    So I sang, You Are So Beautiful To Me
    And I played every note to Faithfully
    I loved her with everything
    But I couldn't think of anything to say
    So I sang

    No one believed in me as much as Mom
    See, she worked overtime to buy my first guitar
    When the angels called her home
    My sister asked if I would speak
    But there were no words to say how much she meant to me

    So I sang, It Is Well With My Soul
    And I played, I'm So Tired Of Being Alone
    'Cause those were Mama's favorite songs
    And what I felt would take too long to say
    So I sang
    Yes, I sang
    So I sang Writer/s: TIMOTHY A. JAMES, DARIUS C. RUCKER, RIVERS RUTHERFORD
