Lyrics

Fourth of July

Written By: Mare Carmody

The boys ride bikes like they got wings
The dogs all pass you by
Each house has a different tale to tell
Chicken frying, drinks iced down, clothes hung out to dry
Everybody's ready for the Fourth of July
Queen Lily on her front porch, combing out her hair
Hollering at the kids to play outside
Sound of air conditioners, white noise on the rise
Trying hard to keep your cool on the Fourth of July

Cause there's no going back there
And nothing there is the same
And I know I won't ever find the way

Smell of juniper, smell of dirt, a song can make you fly
The trains run every day at 6 and 2
Watch your step where the sidewalk cracks
Sun and hazy sky
Stretching out with time to kill on the Fourth of July
At the end of the street put some shoes on your feet
Run fast and you can fly
Close the door, you're letting cool air out
On the boulevard of green grass, where that boy made her cry
Till his mama yanked him in on the Fourth of July

Cause there's no going back there
And nothing there is the same
And I know I won't ever find the way
Find the way
