South Carolina

A two day trip to South Carolina
That I didn’t really wanna take
Cause I’d miss the money
My work would have provided
And the love only a family can make

But the trees touched with autumn
Breathed life into me
All the leaves so beautifully dying
Around hills so soft and green

A weekend occasion so carefully planned
And I was requested to sing
For a life saving nurse and a tall preacher man
Hey it’s a lot more than just swapping rings

That fall in South Carolina breathed life from above
All the leaves so beautifully dying
It was the kind of fall for falling in love

So here I am about to touch down in Dallas
But to a cowboy, hey that’s nothing new
And some days I’ll stop and smile and remember
How good it felt singing for you
