  • My Mama mapped out the road that she knows
    Which hands you shake and which hands you hold
    In my hand-me-down Mercury, ready to roll
    She knew that I had to go
    And hangout, make lots of noise
    Lay out and hang with the boys
    Make the mistakes that she made 'cause she knew all along

    I was already gone
    I was already gone
    I was already gone
    Life is a runaway train you can't wait to jump on

    They say the first time won't ever last
    But that didn't stop me. the first time he laughed
    All my friends tried to warn me the day that we met
    "Girl, don't you lose your heart yet"
    But his dark eyes dared me with danger
    And sparks fly like flame to a paper
    Fire in his touch burning me up, but still I held on

    I was already gone
    I was already gone
    I was already gone
    Life is a runaway train you can't wait to jump on

    The last time I see him, we packed up my things
    And he smiled like the first time he told me his name
    And we cried with each other
    We split the blame for the parts that we couldn't change
    Pictures, dishes and socks
    It's our whole life down to one box
    There he was waving goodbye on the front porch alone

    But I was already gone
    I was already gone
    I was already gone
    I was already gone
    I was already gone
    Hangout, make lots of noise
    Lay out late with a boy
    Make the mistakes that she made, life is a runaway train

    My mama mapped out the road that she knows
    Which hands to shake, which hands you hold
    In my hand-me-down Mercury
    Life is a runaway train you can't wait to jump on Writer/s: Bobby Pinson, Jennifer Nettles, Kristian Bush
