Miranda Lambert — New Strings lyrics

I bet this road will take me out of here
Take me far away from amarillo
I bet this car will go real fast
The wheels might even drive me past
The places that you said I'd never go
Oh...

The texas sky is the biggest one I've seen
But it still ain't big enough for you and me
All the things that make you mad,
All the baggage in your past
Don't leave much room for a girl like me to be
So I'll fill her up with hope and worn out dreams

(Chorus)
I'll grab the wheel and I'll point it west
Pack the good and leave the rest
Drive until I find the missing piece
You said I wouldn't get too far on a tank of gas and an empty heart
But I have everything I'll ever need
I got an old guitar and a brand new set of strings

Mama said I never should have done it
I should have ended us before we ever started
Daddy knew about my pride so he stood there and he smiled inside and I pretended that I didn't notice a little tear that fell when I said I was going

(Chorus)
I'll grab the wheel and I'll point it west
Pack the good and leave the rest
Drive until I find the missing piece
You said I wouldn't get too far on a tank of gas and an empty heart
But I have everything I'll ever need
I got an old guitar and a brand new set of strings

(Tag)
I've worried about life and
If it's right and right in time
I guess if you don't jump
You'll never know if you can fly

You said I'd never get to far on a tank of gas and an empty heart
But I've got everything I'll ever need
I've got this old guitar and a brand new set of strings

Ooo...
