West Virgina

West Virgina

I got an email from West Virginia
This girl I hadn’t heard from in years
Sent me a picture of the guy I used to be
We floated down that ol’ New River
But somebody else took the plunge
We drifted apart until she lost sight of me

We had some high times back then
All good things must come to an end
Sort of majestic and kinda grand
No place for a working man

Chorus:
Just because I punch a clock
Doesn’t mean I can’t tell time
It’s too late for West Virginia
North Carolina suits me fine

I’m gonna write her back before long
If my fingers can find the right words
Maybe I’ll send along a picture of my wife
She looks like you but she’s much nicer
And she treats me like a million bucks
What else do you want to know about my new life

We had some high times back then
All good things must come to an end
Sort of majestic and kinda grand
No place for a working man

Chorus:
Just because I punch a clock
Doesn’t mean I can’t tell time
It’s too late for West Virginia
North Carolina suits me fine
