That Ol Dirt Road [song]


Just thinkin back
To that ol dirt road
When things where good
Even with a heavy load

I can see you
Standing there
With teardrops falling
On your cheeks so fare


[CHORUS]
[Oh that ol dirt road
Brings back some memories
Of those good ol days
Between you and me

Those memories
They keep haunting me
Taking me back to days
That are a part of me]

It is said
We can't out run our past
No matter how we try
It is here to last

We had a love
That was meant to be
But you left
And set me free

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[Oh that ol dirt road
Brings back some memories
Of those good ol days
Between you and me

Those memories
They keep haunting me
Taking me back to days
That are a part of me]

That ol dirt road
Is still in my mind
Stuck in a place
No one may never find

Our love seems stuck
In a virtual space
But I know it's real
everytime I picture your face

That ol dirt road
keeps you in my heart
No matter how
We may drift apart

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[Oh that ol dirt road
Brings back some memories
Of those good ol days
Between you and me

Those memories
They keep haunting me
Taking me back to days
That are a part of me]

That ol dirt road
Means so much to me
when it takes me back
to such sweet memories

Give me that ol dirt road
With you standing there
When you said you loved me
And you would always care

That ol dirt road
Is only left in my mind
Holding a love so pure
So sweet, and so kind

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[Oh that ol dirt road
Brings back some memories
Of those good ol days
Between you and me

Those memories
They keep haunting me
Taking me back to days
That are a part of me]

That ol dirt road
It's like a power pill
And it even knows
How I love you still

That ol dirt road
May seem so hard to find
But, I think of you
And it's in my mind

That ol dirt road
Holds a love so true
This very love
That I hold for you

[REPEAT CHORUS]

[Oh that ol dirt road
Brings back some memories
Of those good ol days
Between you and me

Those memories
They keep haunting me
Taking me back to days
That are a part of me]
