Red Dirt Girl

Capo 4 
Me and my best friend Lillian  
And her blue tick hound dog Gideon 
Sittin on the front porch cooling in the shade 
Singin every song the radio played 
Waitin for the Alabama sun to go down 
Two red dirt girls in a red dirt town  
Me and Lillian 
     Bm                    A                       G     D 
Just across the line and a little southeast of Meridian 
She loved her brother I remember back when  
He was fixin up a '49 Indian 
He told her 'Little sister, gonna ride the wind 
Up around the moon and back again\" 
He never got farther than Vietnam 
I was standin there with her when the telegram come 
For Lillian 
Now he's lyin somewhere about a million miles from Meridian 
She said there's not much hope for a red dirt girl  
Somewhere out there is a great big world 
Thats where I'm bound 
And the stars might fall on Alabama 
But one of these days I'm gonna swing  
My hammer down 
Away from this red dirt town 
I'm gonna make a joyful sound   
She grew up tall and she grew up thin 
Buried that old dog Gideon 
By a crepe myrtle bush in the back of the yard, 
Her daddy turned mean and her mama leaned hard 
Got in trouble with a boy from town 
Figured that she might as well settle down 
So she dug right in 
Across a red dirt line just a little south east from Meridian 
She tried hard to love him but it never did take 
It was just another way for the heart to break 
So she learned to bend
But one thing they don't tell you about the blues when you got em 
You keep on falling cause there ain't no bottom 
There ain't no end 
At least not for Lillian 
Nobody knows when she started her skid 
She was only 27 and she had five kids 
Coulda' been the whiskey, coulda been the pills 
Coulda been the dream she was trying to kill 
But there won't be a mention in the news of the world  
About the life and the death of a red dirt girl 
Named Lillian 
Who never got any further across the line than Meridian 
Now the stars still fall on Alabama 
The night she finally laid that hammer down 
Without a sound 
In the red dirt ground
