Co-written with Taylor Whitaker

lyrics

A beat up truck on a long dirt road
That’s the place I feel at home
Burning rubber on these city streets
Now my heart is made of stone

Feeling jaded, complicated
Until I turn that FM dial
Hear them singing, gospel ringing
I raise my voice and join the choir

I found God in a country song
A melody that sounds so sweet
Heavy head hanging low from the day
Let that music take my cares away

That first day when I stepped off the plane
I thought I’d found a better life
But love is fleeting and fame don’t last
And cash won’t keep me warm at night

Feeling jaded, complicated
Until I turn that FM dial
Hear them singing, gospel ringing
I raise my voice and join the choir

I found God in a country song
A melody that sounds so sweet
Heavy head hanging low from the day
Let that music take my cares away

Chasing bright lights after midnight
Like a band-aid on a heart
But in the morning you transform me
Like a campfire in the dark
