​Kentucky

This song is by Edwin McCain and appears on the album Far From Over (2001).

The night before your wedding,
I dreamed what I would say,
I'd beg you for forgiveness,
For all the mess I've made.

I dreamed that you were gracious,
I dreamed you wished me well,
I dreamed that you were vicious,
You damned me straihgt to hell.

But, oh, sweet Kentucky
No matter where I land
I was just a boy for you
And he will be your man.
I was just a boy for you
And he will be your man.

I'd tell you that I'm lonely,
And fame has let me down,
Living like a stranger,
Traveling town to town.

And all my aspirations,
Don't amount to much,
The wine and the women,
Are such a shameful crutch.

I know you will be happy,
And I'll be in the band,
'Cause I was just a boy for you,
And he will be your man.

And I was just a boy for you,
He will be your man...
