Virginia Is For Lovers

This song is by Mat Kearney and appears on the album Young Love (2011).

Got off the bus in Richmond
Gotta hand drawn map from the pawn shop man
Followed that blue smudged line through the rain
She was holding a cappuccino in her hand
Sallie Keena, dove eyes, and what's his name
Walking with ghosts on cobble stones
Took a million pictures of nothing
For one night I didn't feel so alone

Richmond you stole all of my thunder
Growing up wide-eyed, full of wonder
Maybe we were more like sister and brothers
Virginia is for lovers

Played my songs in a black painted ballroom
For some confederates and thieves
Under the blinking red bleeding lights you
Handed me a shirt with an airplane on the sleeve
Said that you were making movies
Trying real hard to find your place
I Love You Sailor at steamboat
With a black swan shadow on your face

Richmond you stole all of my thunder
Growing up wide-eyed, full of wonder
Maybe we were more like sister and brothers
Virginia is for lovers

But you would move back to D.C.
Sleeping on your momma's couch
How's little Max doing anyway?
Bet he got his girl trouble figured out
Her dove eyes moved down to Austin
With a girlfriend prettier than me
When those fruit bats start singing
I wonder if she's thinking about that dream

Richmond you stole all of my thunder
Growing up wide-eyed, full of wonder
Maybe we were more like sister and brothers
Virginia is for lovers
Virginia is for lovers
