Billy Ray Cyrus Runway Lights Lyrics

Last updated: 06/04/2012 11:00:00 AM

Graduated from Lincoln High
Somehow I made my way through VMI
Joined the Navy and I learned to fly
That's what I always dreamed of
There's a hometown girl who wears my ring
Her name is painted on my starboard wing
Tonight I'm half a world from everything
And everyone that I love.

I wonder how the Yankees did tonight
I sure hope grandma's doin' alright
I wish I knew what momma's cooking for supper
I pray Jane had got my letter and knows how much I love her

Lord knows I got a job to do
I just can't wait until it's through
I keep dreamin' bout that homebound flight
Looking for those runway lights.

Grandpa did his part for Uncle Sam
Daddy did his time in Vietnam
Now I'm flying over sea and sand
Through unfriendly skies
Man if it was up to me
I'd be touchin' down in Tennessee
My baby standing there waiting on me
Tears in her eyes

I wonder how the Yankees did tonight
I sure hope grandma's doin' alright
I wish I knew what momma's cooking for supper
I pray Jane had got my letter and knows how much I love her

Lord knows I got a job to do
I can't wait until it's through
I keep dreamin' bout that homebound flight
Looking for those runway lights.
Looking for those runway lights.
Looking for those runway lights.
