Rollin' by Mornin'

1) She was a lonely girl alone in a lonely world waiting for someone to find her

He was a city boy in search of a pretty toy

He knew from the first he could blind her with his soft words and fancy stuff ‘cause she never     had enough to fill up the empty place inside her

And she walked down the streets in the shadows he cast, no thoughts of the future, and none of the past

With a little girl’s faith she hoped it would last though he said he’d be rollin’ by mornin’, he said,

Chorus

“I’ll be rollin’, you know I’m rollin’, honey, I will be rollin’  by mornin’.”

 

2) Just like a vagabond he thought that he’d be gone, out on the highway to somewhere

He didn’t recognize love in a woman’s eyes, he didn’t know his own fear

He was hiding every need, there was nothing he couldn’t leave except for the empty

place inside him

And he walked down the streets in the shadows she cast, no thoughts of the future, and none of the past

With a little boy’s faith he feared it would last so he said he’d be rollin’ by mornin’, he said  Chorus

 

Bridge

Mornin’ came as they knew it would, he left before dawn but he didn’t feel good

He opened his truck door and climbed up inside, she was already there and ready to ride, some door in his heart that was locked opened wide he said,

 

Final Chorus

“I guess we’ll be rollin’ by mornin’.”

She said, “Yes we’ll be rollin’ by mornin’.”

 

Coda

“Honey we’ll be rollin’, you know we’re rollin’, honey we will be rollin’ by mornin’,

we will be rollin’ by mornin’.”
