  • She wasn't wearing a wedding dress
    In a Vegas wedding chapel
    They were herding 'em in and out of there
    Like they were cattle
    Not exactly the fairytale that she had planned
    But mama said, "Aren't you supposed to get married, girl
    Before you bring a baby in this world?"
    And all she could say was "yes ma'am"
    She called her from that chapel
    In Love Land
    She said, "mama, I really love this man"
    Love Land

    Seemed like a lifetime, driving from Vegas to Oklahoma
    "If you're allowed a number of mistakes in life," she said
    "Maybe I filled my quarter"
    They called in a reception, saying you did the right thing
    But they smiled, their broken smiles said
    "Who needs to walk down the aisle?"
    As she showed off her wedding ring
    They walked away hand in hand
    To Love Land
    She said, "I really love this man"
    Love Land

    Amazing all the progress we've made
    Since the days of Thomas Edison
    Still only God gives life
    In spite of modern medicine
    The doctors' voices whispered
    "We did all that we could do
    But your baby wasn't strong enough
    To make it the whole nine months"
    And as their world broke in two
    He said, "I'll carry you through
    To Love Land"

    She said, "for the longest time I've blamed myself
    Thought I was paying for my mistakes"
    But they tried again, now they're watching him
    Blow three candles out
    He's daddy's little man
    She said, "only God could've planned the steps I've taken
    That led me to where I am
    Love Land
    Love, Love Land
    Anywhere you hold my hand is Love Land
    Ooh, Love Land" Writer/s: RACHEL THIBODEAU, TOM DOUGLAS
