SONGWRITING

Dust

By: Laura Alford

I followed
My heart where she led me
Did my best
To make you see
All I had to offer,
It was yours for free

Now I gotta shake this dust
Off my feet
Scoot on down that long road
More strangers to meet
Need to refresh and reload

I’m gonna shake the dust
Off my feet
Head on down that long road
More friends to greet
They help me unwind and unload

Never again,
I say every time
I’m trading my whisky
For communion wine
But when you call,
I turn on a dime

Now I gotta shake this dust
Off my feet
Scoot on down that long road
More strangers to meet
Need to refresh and reload

I’m gonna shake the dust
Off my feet
Head on down that long road
More friends to greet
They help me unwind and unload

What’s the point
In starting over
Someone new
Or getting sober
Can’t fix this mess
With 4 leaf clover

Now I gotta shake this dust
Off my feet
Scoot on down that long road
More strangers to meet
Need to refresh and reload

I’m gonna shake the dust
Off my feet
Head on down that long road
More friends to greet
They help me unwind and unload
