Hummingbird Lyrics

Artist: Ricky Skaggs
Album: Country Gentleman

HUMMINGBIRD
(Tim Dubois - Greg Jennings)
« © '89 House Of Gold Music »

Got tired of livin' in that one horse town
When to the station flagged that hummingbird down
I didn't even call to say goodbye
I couldn't stand to see that little girl cry
Now I'm walkin' to the city gonna make my name
Those lights were callin' me to fortune and fame
I had to ride that hummingbird just let me ride that hummingbird
I'm gonna make it now just any day
I've got this guitar and I came to play
Lyin' here lonely knowin' what I lost
My heart keeps asking was it worth the cost
Now ain't it funny how that always seems
Once you're standing there and the grass ain't so green
Why did I ride that hummingbird why did I ride that hummingbird
Oh today she called me on the telephone
She said hey country boy you been gone too long
And now I'm standin' at the station looking down the line
Here comes that hummingbird and she's right on time
I'm gonna ride that hummingbird just let me ride that hummingbird
I'm gonna ride just let me ride that hummingbird
