lyrics

The drive across in Greenville
Used to lift my spirits
Holds nothing for me this time

Emptiness is creeping in
I can't explain it
Rather speed past the Louisiana line

Hard to know what's the same
What has changed more
Me or this shadow of a town

They all used to be my friends
Now I do not know them
Did we drift apart or let each other down?

I'm all alone
This is no longer home

Yeah there's no point in trying to recreate it
Yeah we finished the game but didn't know we'd played it

In front of my old house
A kid is shooting baskets
On a goal that my dad hung for me

Take a turn down Camp Road
Now I'm going back in time
Hope to find where my innocence might be

I'd pick up a fifth of whiskey
And head out to a party
At a dead end on the outskirts of town

But the time for that is gone and
Who knows where to go now?
A dry county ain't no place to come down

I'm all alone
This is no longer home

Yeah there's no point in trying to recreate it
Yeah we finished the game but didn't know we'd played it

After moving to Nashville in the late 1990s, he became disillusioned with the music business. It took getting in touch with the less polished side of country music to gain inspiration. ... more
