lyrics

Good Man
so there I was getting high for a greyhound ride that’s where I should’ve died late December on my way home for christmas
bus driver said we’ll stop get something to eat be back in fifteen for that’s when i’ll leave outside Roanoke, Virginia
and yes I can still feel my heart pound as I walked out looking all around that bus nowhere to found
and so I took off down the highway oh lord I wanna be saved ain’t gonna spend the rest of my days here on this asphalt

I got one good chance to turn around and be a good man
I got my mother’s old bible and my father’s letter jacket from the seventies
oh I got one good chance to turn around and be a good man
a heart ready to break and a hundred more miles back to Tennessee
and yes I been pleadin’

truck driver stopped and asked boy would you like a ride no sir that wouldn’t be right my feet gotta learn to walk this world on their own
a drizzling rain and a starless night began to roll in I was shivering not because I was cold but because i’d been poisoned
and yes I can still feel those tears falling down as I looked about no headlight or saving grace to be found
that’s when I picked myself up off the highway yelled lord I wanna be saved ain’t gonna spend the rest of my days here on this asphalt

oh I got one good chance to turn around and be a good man
I got my mother’s old bible and my father’s letter jacket from the seventies
oh I got one good chance to turn around and be a good man
a heart ready to break and a hundred more miles back to Tennessee

and I got one good chance to turn around and be a good man
I got my mother’s old bible and my father’s letter jacket from the seventies
oh I got one good chance to turn around and be a good man
a heart ready to break and a hundred more miles back to Tennessee
and yes I been pleadin’

about

Kip Bradley Tennessee

Kip Bradley writes and sings songs that evoke images of late-night highway drives under the Milky Way and making it into town just as dawn breaks. Just the kind of place where childhood dreams clash with adult realities.
