ROAD THRU THE HEARTLAND
Words & Music
Tasos Taiganides and Terry Carter

I got on the train last night
Headed for the southern line
I heard my friend call but I couldn’t say goodbye

I sat across from a lady
Must have been someone’s grandma
Heard her talking about her family, a tear fell from her eye

She misses her daughter
She knows just what it means to free
And I can see her
And I can feel her
Her pain is drowning me inside

There’s a road thru the heartland
There’s a road to you
There’s a road thru the heartland
That brings me home to you

As the hours pass by
I saw the flashing city lights
I prayed this path wouldn’t leave me all alone

I saw a young child cry
I tried to close my eyes
But the fire inside kept burning me alive

And I can see her
And I can feel her
Her pain is drowning me inside
Maybe I could feel this life
Maybe I could find my way

There’s a road ahead
So watch for the signs

There’s a road thru the heartland
There’s a road to you
There’s a road thru the heartland
That brings me home to you

(Bridge)
Oh, there’s a light that shines
And it can shine on you
And let the light shine on us
So we can be together
If you could hold these arms
And drown them in the river
And cleanse my soul
I gave my soul
For this heartland

Made a stop in New Orleans
Step into the flood field scene
Saw the homes and the broken pieces of their hearts

Saw an old man on the corner
His face all weathered and torn
He pulled out his harp and played me his blues

The wave is coming
It’s crashing down
The city walls are all underground

And I can see him
And I can feel him
His pain is drowning me

There’s a road thru the heartland
There’s a road to home
There’s a road thru the heartland
That brings me home to you

There’s a road thru this heartland
And a road straight to you
There’s a road thru this heartland
That brings me home to you

This heartland, is my land
This heartland, is your land
This heartland was built, with these hands
This heartland, is our land
