RODNEY CROWELL lyrics - I Walk The Line (Revisited)

RODNEY CROWELL
"I Walk The Line (Revisited)"

I'm back on board that '49 Ford in 1956
Long before the sun came up way out in the sticks
The headlights showed a two rut road way back up in the pines
First time I heard Johnny Cash sing I Walk The Line

I got my thrill behind the wheel upon my daddy's lap
Grandpa rode co-pilot with a flashlight and a map
Cane pole out the window it was in the summertime
First time I heard Johnny Cash sing I Walk The Line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I Walk The Line

I never will forget that day I know the time and place
It sounded like the whole thing came right down from outer space
I still can see those headlights and that dashboard in my mind
First time I heard Johnny Cash sing I Walk The Line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day's through
Yes I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I Walk The Line

All these long years later it's still music to my earyp
I swear it sounds as good right now as anything I hear
I've seen the Mona Lisa I've heard Shakespeare read real fine
It's just like hearing Johnny Cash sing I Walk The Line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I Walk The Line
Because you're mine, I Walk The Line
