– Six Strings & Diamond Rings

Six Strings & Diamond Rings
———————————————————

This town has a long lonely list
Of good hearts and tortured relationships
Guitar women and men like me
Married to the music and the songs they sing

Chasin’ a dream down the interstate
Never giving a thought to the price I pay
Don’t know why but now I believe
Goodbye was invented in Tennessee

The Highway ain’t home for nothin but a heartache
It just gets lonely and it still takes everything and more.

Love is just a song we sing
‘Cause six strings are hard on diamond rings

Sometimes I dream of a picket fence
A fridge covered in pictures and a yard full of kids
A woman who meant it when she said I do
Then I wake up in a hotel room

The Highway ain’t home for nothin but a heartache
It just gets lonely and it still takes everything and more.

Love is just a song I sing
‘Cause six strings are hard on diamond rings

The Highway ain’t home for nothin but a heartache
It just gets lonely and it still takes everything and more.
In my life now, a flame gets started but it burns out
In the lights and the nights of a new crowd
That’s what I’m living for

Love is just a song I sing
‘Cause six strings are hard on diamond rings

Yeah, love ain’t nothin but a song I sing
‘Cause six strings are hard on diamond rings
