North on 21 - Riley Green

Third night this week
Playing this old bar again
Young newly wed couple showed up
Spotted them as soon as they walked in
They looked so in love
Young man looked up at me, threw me a five
And asked if he could buy me a drink
He said I wish I could sing and play guitar man you've got it made
I said before we go and toast to that, there's something I gotta say

I'd give it all, I'd give it back
I'd make a call wouldn't take me long to pack
And I'd give it up, I'd give it in
If only I, could see her again
Just took this long to see, that this ain't where I need to be
I've had too much fun, I'm headed north on 21

Made a lot of good friends, but lost them just as fast
You can't see the real world, through the bottom of a glass
Ain't even got a dog, cause I'm always on the road
Don't even call home, even a letter wrote
But if I could see the bright lights of Montgomery, Alabam'
Take this long road back up home, and never take it down

I'd give it all, I'd give it back
I'd make a call wouldn't take me long to pack
And I'd give it up, I'd give it in
If only I, could see her again
Just took this long to see, that this ain't where I need to be
I've had too much fun, I'm headed north on 21

Just took this long to see, that this bottles drownin' me
I've had too much fun, I'm headed north on 21
