Lyrics

This little county line’s as far as I go
I stand beside the path, hoping to follow
And behind the trailer parks and church there’s a show
A man pulls out his gun, his wife breaks a window
And out on the Main Street they’re painting lines on the new paved road to the highway
I still wear the same coat, though I don’t wear the ring
And all the miles that you put between don’t mean anything
This is my heart and it’s beating for you
This is my heart and it’s beating for you
For you
For you
These days my old man never leaves his TV
He laughs inside his room and leaves the work to me
And you missed the carnival
Everyone’s in town riding on the Ferris wheel
like it was some big deal
And folks on the corner, they argue ‘bout how the new paved road changes everything
And you’re in a strange place, some university
And you may learn that you won’t return
or come back for me
This is my heart and it’s beating for you
This is my heart and it’s beating for you
For you
For you
You didn’t see the leaves change you didn’t see them fall
It just gets colder in New York and that is all
That’s all
We talk by telephone and I hear a voice
That’s changing day by day, with less and less to say
And outside the county line is buried in the snow and I’m falling deeper
This you’ll never know
And out on the Main Street the people drive to a better life down that highway
I still wear the same face, though I don’t wear the ring
And all the miles that you put between
still don’t mean a thing
This is my heart and it’s beating for you
This is my heart and it’s beating for you
For you
For you
