Lyrics

DON"T LOOK BACK
words & music by Grayson Hught

See that girl go walking
off to the horizon line
she's going to a new life
goin' in her own good time
she ain't takin' no airplane
don't want to get there too fast
it's not too late
she can still take it back
maybe it all will pass

And she's been down that road before
and she can't go back there no more

Don't look back
keep right on that track, baby
don't look back
keep that sunshine on your back
don't stop to shed a tear
it ain't as bad as that
that's alright baby
don't look back

She made it down to the station
as the whistle started to blow
up drives Johnny in his pickup truck
grabs her and says "don't go"
"tell me that you still love me"
"look me straight in the eyes"
she says "if you don't tell me no stories"
"I won't tell you no lies"
"cause we been down that road before"
"and we can't go back there no more"

Don't look back
keep right on that track, baby
don't look back
keep that sunshine on your back
don't stop to shed a tear
don't be sorry or sad
that's alright baby
don't look back

If somebody, anybody
tries to make you change your mind
take your comfort from your courage
leave 'em all behind

It's a year gone and a lifetime
since she left that old town
every now and then her name comes up
as old friends sit around
way off in the distance
a restless owl she cries
and there's a young girl
who's leavin' home
she's lookin' for a brand new life

Don't look back
keep right on that track, baby
don't look back
keep that sunshine on your back
don't stop to shed a tear
it ain't as bad as that
that's alright baby
don't look back

Don't look back
keep right on that track, baby
don't look back
keep that sunshine on your back
don't stop to shed a tear
don't be sorry or sad
that's alright baby
don't look back
