If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away - Justin Moore

Every day I drive to work across Flint River Bridge
A hundred yards from the spot where me and Grandpa fished
There's a piece of his old fruit stand on the side of Sawmill Road
He'd be there peeling peaches if it was twenty years ago
And what I wouldn't give to ride around in that old truck with him

If heaven wasn't so far away I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa Watch em laugh at the way he talks
I'd find my long lost cousin John the one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now She's a doctor and he'd be proud
Tell 'em we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view mirror we'd all watch them wave
Losing them wouldnt be so hard to take
If heaven wasn't so far away

I'd hug all three of those girls we lost from the class of 99
And find my old bird dog Bo and take him huntin' one more time
I'd ask Hand why he took those pills back in '53
And Janis to sing the second verse of "Me and Bobby McGee
Sit on a cloud and visit for awhile
It'd do me good just to see them smile

IF heaven wasn't so far away I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa Watch em laugh at the way he talks
I'd find my long lost cousin John the one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now She's a doctor he'd be proud
tell em we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view we'd all watch them wave
Yeah losing them wouldn't be so hard to take
If heaven wasn't so far
If heaven wasn't so far
If heaven wasn't so far away

So far away
So far away
