Two Hearted River Road
Did I ever show you the picture?
It came in letter number three.
Eleven months ago, before the writing,
All tomorrows were just yesterdays to me.
I sent a couple hundred dollars,
So she could buy a wedding dress.
I can hardly stand it till I see her,
Well, guess I'll give my suit another press.
The Reverend said he'd meet us up at Two Heart,
I thought she'd be here before the snow.
I wrote, 'I'll come get you', she wrote, 'No.
I ain't scared of no Two Hearted River Road'.
Jim says he doesn't know why I keep fretting,
About the weather and the road.
He said, 'Friend, I really hate to tell you,
I'm afraid your lady's never gonna' show! '
'She's two hearted, like the river, I suppose,
Can't make up her mind to stay or go.
Your dreams are in the city with your dollars,
So don't be watching that Two Hearted River Road'.
Well, I knew she'd be getting here real soon,
Just listen, now, to letter number twenty-six,
'I'll be at Two Heart Grocery by Sunday afternoon,
Can hardly wait to see your house, way out in the sticks.'
