joe purdy.

i love this man. his voice, his lyrics, everything.
this is "MISS ME"...

other suggested songs to listen to:
  • Why Do I?
  • California Girl
  • Mary Mae & Bobby (makes me cry every time)

Some movie star told you this ain't where it's at.
So you packed your bags and one night you headed out.
Said, these small town blues got you going insane
gone into the city, gonna change your name
and you never look back at where you came
swore you're never gonna be the same.

Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?

You're a big girl now, got your big shoes
and you're running around with big girl blues
and I know you don't doubt yourself anymore
no, when you feel like leaving, walk out the door
and I bet you ain't got nothin left to learn
it's better that way cause you never get burned
and you try not to think about what might have been
cause you know this town is just sink or swim

Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?

Well the last time I saw you were waving goodbye
from the back of the train with a tear in your eye.

Now I hear you're in love with some big city man
and together you're making your big city plans
and you hope he don't find out about who you are
that we used to catch fireflies in mason jars
and we used to go down to the county fair
and we listened to blue grass in summer air
and we danced all night as the rain came down
and you held my hand as we slept on the ground
and we wrote our names in the old oak wood
I guess some things don't work out like they should.

Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?
Do you miss me?
Do you miss me? yeah...
Do you miss me?
