Running Through The New Brown Corn
T. Edwin Doss t.edwindoss@wildblue.net 2403513024

Jimmy Morgan was a young boy…….lived a half mile from Papa's farm

on a old dirt road near the quarry where he once fell…broke his
arm……He was a tough one…took a lot of things on the chin….. we

hunted deer and quail…had fist fights…we were the best of friends
We were runnin'…..we were runnin'…..
couple of crazy kids in Alabama thinking things would always stay..
We were runnin'…..we were runnin' … never knowin' the world would
turn upside down,.. lose things along the way…Wish I could go back to
the time…and place where I was born… when we were
runnin'………………..runnin' through the new brown corn Years later he turned eighteen..Got a letter from "Uncle Sam"…Families drove to the station to wave good-bye…he was bound for Vietnam…. I ran 'long side the train …..stopped to pray on an ol' side track…. High School band played "Dixie" in a drizzlin' rain…… I knew he wasn't coming back Chorus We were runnin'…..we were runnin'…..
couple of crazy kids in Alabama thinkin' things would always stay..
We were runnin'…..we were runnin' … never knowin' the world would
turn upside down,.. lose things along the way…Wish I could go back to
the time…and place where I was born… when we were
runnin'………………..runnin' through the new brown corn
I often think about my friend…what he said to me that day… Shook my hand…never shed a tear, as the train was pullin' away Told me to follow my dreams..hold on to good things that I find Know God…Love family …when I ever get lost….Come back home in my mind We were running…..we were running…..
couple of crazy kids in Alabama thinking things would always stay..
We were runnin'…..we were runnin' … never knowin' the world would
turn upside down,.. lose things along the way…Wish I could go back to
the time…and place where I was born… when we were
runnin'………………..runnin' through the new brown corn
