The Charlie Daniels Band Franklin Limestone Lyrics

Last updated: 06/06/2012 11:00:00 AM

Franklin Limestone, always been my home
I was born in Nashville, a place I call my own
Where the mountains, and the rivers, and the valleys
We were married, you and me

We were both so happy just being together
Like a possum in the wood
So please forgive me if I forget to tell you
What you mean to me

Hard cold winter took away my mother
Papa got the fever, Lord he said he couldn't leave her
You carried me through bad times, through the worst times
You were my driving wheel

We were both so happy just being together
Like a possum in the wood
So please forgive me if I forget to tell you
What you mean to me

Workin in a coal mine, slaving in the day time
Lookin to the Good Lord for any peace of mind
The feeling if you left me on that hillside
Would break this heart of mine

We were both so happy just being together
Like a possum in the wood
So please forgive me if I forget to tell you
Lord, what you mean to me
