16 CARRIAGES Songtext

Sixteen carriages drivin′ away
While I watch them ride with my dreams away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road, all the tears I fight
Sixteen carriages drivin' away
While I watch them ride with my dreams away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road, all the tears I fight

At fifteen, the innocence was gone astray
Had to leave my home at an early age
I saw Mama prayin′, I saw Daddy grind
All my tender problems, had to leave behind


It's been umpteenth summers, and I'm not in my bed
On the back of the bus and a bunk with the band
Goin′ so hard, gotta choose myself
Undеrpaid and overwhelmed
I might cook, clеan, but still won′t fold
Still workin' on my life, you know
Only God knows, only God knows
Only God knows

Sixteen carriages drivin′ away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road, all the tears I fight
Sixteen carriages drivin' away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road, all the tears I fight

Sixteen dollars, workin′ all day
Ain't got time to waste, I got art to make
I got love to create on this holy night
They won′t dim my light, all these years I fight


It's been thirty-eight summers, and I'm not in my bed
On the back of the bus and a bunk with the band
Goin′ so hard, now I miss my kids
Overworked and overwhelmed
I might cook, clean, but still won′t fold
Still workin' on my life, you know
Only God knows, only God knows
Only God knows

Sixteen carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road, all the tears I fight
Sixteen carriages driving away
While I watch them ride with my fears away
To the summer sunset on a holy night
On a long back road, all these tears I fight

Oh, oh
Oh
At fifteen, the innocence was gone astray
Had to take care of home at an early age
I saw Mama cryin′, I saw Daddy lyin'
Had to sacrifice and leave my fears behind
The legacy is the last thing I do
You′ll remember me 'cause we got somethin′ to prove
In your memory, on a highway to truth
Still see your faces when you close your eyes

Sixteen carriages drivin' away
While I watch them ride with my dreams away
