Josiah Leming lyrics : "Appalachia"

Appalachia by Josiah Leming

For too many times I've held it in

Appalachian range in the northbound wind
My mind is growing strong but my body's wearing thin
And I can't turn this thing around


Oh, but you might see it every now and then
Appalachian sorrow running down my skin

Cos I'm the man that borrows from the man that lends
And I will always let him know
And every day I try to live it down


And when they lay my body in the green green grass
I will whisper quiet secrets to the animals that pass

Bout the times I knew I swore I was never coming back
But I lied
I am Appalachia


Wake up to find that I've outgrown my friends
Our seeds grew side by side but my roots grew thin

Then one day I blew away in Autumn's restless wind
And she has never set me down


Oh, alone I wing my way through winter storms
Spring brought new life that storm down its door
There was blood in my mama's knees from talking to the Lord

And he won't let me wash it out
And every day I try to live it down


And when they lay my body in the green green grass
I will whisper quiet secrets to the animals that pass
Bout the times I walked away about the times that I ran back

Cos I lied
I am Appalachia


And I am Appalachia running through the trees
With my head above the clouds and all the ground beneath my feet
Oh, at times I know I swore that I would never love these things

But I lied

And when they lay my body in the green green grass

I will whisper quiet secrets to the animals that pass
Bout the times I knew I swore I was never coming back
But I lied cos inside

Yes I lied cos inside
I am Appalachia
