Pride, Charley - In The Middle Of Nowhere Lyrics




They had meant for me one last time to see my hometown again
Once again go there see the places where as a child I've been
As I journeyed now it was so far out it was almost in
In the middle in the middle of nowhere
Sadness talked with me as I walked the streets of my memory
Streets that seemed somehow so much smaller now than they used to be
Talked of other days when this tiny place had been home to me
In the middle in the middle of nowhere
People stared at me in silence as I walked around
Time had passed till I was just a stranger there
Folks had changed so much that no one even knew me now
In the middle in the middle of nowhere
I went once again to the schoolyard where I used to play
Passed the church of mom and daddy where they used to pray
Down the dusty road to the churchyard where they both now lay
In the middle in the middle of nowhere
As I placed my blue forgetmenots there on the ground
One last time I knelt by mom and dad in prayer
Then I said goodbye forever to that little town in the middle in the middle of nowhere

  4. Pondy Hsu

    They had meant for me one last time
    to see my hometown again
    Once again go there see the places
    where as a child I've been

    As I journeyed now it was so far out
    it was almost in, in the middle
    in the middle of nowhere

    Sadness talked with me
    as I walked the streets of my memory
    Streets that seemed somehow
    so much smaller now than they used to be

    Talked of other days
    when this tiny place had been home to me
    In the middle in the middle of nowhere
    +++++++++++++
    People stared at me in silence as I walked around
    Time had passed till I was just a stranger there
    Folks had changed so much
    that no one even knew me now
    In the middle in the middle of nowhere

    I went once again to the schoolyard
    where I used to play
    Passed the church of mom and daddy
    where they used to pray

    Down the dusty road to the churchyard
    where they both now lay
    In the middle in the middle of nowhere

    As I placed my blue forget me nuts
    there on the ground
    One last time I knelt by mom and dad in prayer
    Then I said goodbye forever to that little town
    In the middle in the middle of nowhere.....

  15. Mookie Spindlehurst

    Don't know if this was released as a 45rpm single, but if not, it sure should have been. His voice never sounded purer.

    mw7584

    I think so too, the vocal pretty much makes this song! It was written by Liz Anderson, Lynn Anderson's mom of I Never Promised You Rose Garden fame.

  16. Mickey Bowser

  52. Rajan N

    I had these same emotions when I visited my home town in Northern Sri Lanka two years ago. His singing style is very much like that of the late Jim Reeves. Very earthy and sincere. In fact, I didn't know that they were friends back in the 50's-early 60's.

    Fabian Pencel

    Rajkumar Navaratnam

    Sigh.... I can only say take courage and embrace the precious memories of them. I lost daddy 4 years now, i cry because he was my best friend but i am reminded of the fact that this life is so short and all we have is right Now. Embrace it my friend bless you.

    Understand... you can see the house, but the "home" is gone. They say you can never go home again....

    Nancy Mathenge
