Best Thing I Ever Had - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

When I get to Louisiana,
just a mile or more to go.
Yes, when I get to Louisiana,
just a mile or more to go,
Lord, you know i'll be alright
once I hit that station floor.

They say he's in New Orleans
doing his best to survive.
They say he's in New Orleans
doing his best to survive.
I'll be in New Orleans just
as it's turning five,

That man was the best thing-
yes, best thing I ever had.
That man was the best thing-
yes best thing I ever had.
Lord knows when I see him it will
make my heart feel glad.

When we're pulling in the station,
Lord I'll be headed for that door.
Yes, when we're pulling in the station
I'll be headed for that door.
You know I just can't wait until
I hit that station floor.

That man was the best thing-
yes, best thing I ever had.
That man was the best thing-
yes best thing I ever had.
Lord knows when I see him it will
make my heart feel glad.
