Alaina, Lauren - Dirt Road Prayer Lyrics




Let the light shine on my mama
She's been worried about me
And I can tell she's tired
Walk my brother in a straight line
I know he’s only 16
But he’s been playing with fire
Give my grandpa a little peace and quiet
I can feel the years of hard work in his hands
Make my days pass just a little bit slower
I’ve been runnin’ so fast
I’ve forgotten who I am

And so I go where the green grass grows
The weeds are high and the sun hangs low
Look to the sky and I say, hello
Like it’s the very first time
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been
I can talk to God like he’s my best friend
Take my heart lay it down again right there
In a dirt road prayer

He’s a good guy
Looks dad in the eye
And I wonder if you made him just for me
But before I fall give me patience
Until you show me where to take this

And I go where the green grass grows
The weeds are high and the sun hangs low
Look to the sky and I say, hello
Like it’s the very first time
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been
I can talk to God like he’s my best friend
Take my heart lay it down again right there
In a dirt road prayer

It’s good to know I can
Always go where the green grass grows
The weeds are high and the sun hangs low
Look to the sky and I say hello, ooo yeah
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been
I can talk to God like he’s my best friend
Take my heart and lay it down again right there
In a dirt road prayer yeah, yeah
In a dirt road prayer yeah, yeah

    LYRICS:

    Let the light shine on my mama
    She’s been worried ‘bout me
    And I can tell she’s tired
    Walk my brother in a straight line
    I know he’s only sixteen
    But he’s been playing with fire
    Give my grandpa a little peace and quiet
    I can feel the years of hard work in his hands
    Make my days pass just a little bit slower
    I’ve been runnin’ so fast I’ve forgotten who I am

    And so I go where the green grass grows
    The weeds are high and the sun hangs low
    Look to the sky and I say, hello
    Like it’s the very first time
    It doesn’t matter how long it’s been
    I can talk to God like he’s my best friend
    Take my heart lay it down again right there
    In a dirt road prayer

    He’s a good guy
    Looks dad in the eye
    And I wonder if you made him just for me
    But before I fall give me patience
    Until you show me where to take this

    And so I go where the green grass grows
    The weeds are high and the sun hangs low
    Look to the sky and I say, hello
    Like it’s the very first time
    It doesn’t matter how long it’s been
    I can talk to God like he’s my best friend
    Take my heart lay it down again right there
    In a dirt road prayer

    It’s good to know I can

    Always go where the green grass grows
    The weeds are high and the sun hangs low
    Look to the sky and I say hello
    Oh, yeah
    It doesn’t matter how long it’s been
    I can talk to God like he’s my best friend
    Take my heart and lay it down again right there
    In a dirt road prayer
    Yeah, yeah

    In a dirt road prayer
    Yeah, yeah

    my dog died yesterday morning,his name was dodger he died from cancer we didn't know he had cancer until we took him to the vet and that is what the vet had told us. We had took him back home and he was just suffering and we didn't want to see him suffer anymore so as a family we all took him back to the vet and we had decided that the best option was to put him to sleep because we didn't him to suffer anymore that he has and we didn't want to keep suffering RIP dodger.

    When i first saw you, you stopped me in THE MIDDLE of my tracks i knew you would be my NEXT BOYFRIEND and you finally asked my out i was like IM NOT ONE OF THEM and then i realized you were ONE OF THOSE BOYS and you said i was one of them GEORGIA PEACHES and i said we will take the ROAD LESS TRAVELED and move to TUPELO mississippi. You gave me THE LOCKETT that was your grandmothers and i was like the FUNNY THING ABOUT LOVE is that you are still holding secrets till that right time, we had a baby that was EIGHTEEN INCHES long my friends said she looks just LIKE MY MOTHER DOES and you said SHES A WILDFLOWER and i said shes GROWING HER WINGS.
    We both agreed she would make HISTORY and grow up to be BAREFOOT AND BUCKWILD just like us. And all this was and answer to my DIRT ROAD PRAYER!

  39. Freedom

    yes we do, because the weather is what determines what we accomplish; whether it be farming, construction, ect. Its our bread and butter. and the dirt roads are where we go to ease our minds, reminisce, or just to find a beautiful country view and watch the sunset. aint nothin wrong with that. God Bless!
