Lyrics

Getaway
2002 Forrest Lee Jr.

Sally lived back in the woods where the chickens and the dog scratch, on the back porch
Her daddy worked hard from four in the morning milkin? the cows, in the old barn
I lived on the other side of the holler where the lightning, split the oak tree
I?d sneak over every night as soon as her old man, would go to sleep
We dreamed of how to getaway
Cause her daddy didn?t want me near his little girl
But lord it was heaven being together
So we gave it a whirl

Chorus
Headed for the state line
And we made good time
By the morning light
She was mine
No more looking back
Across the beaten path
We could finally stay
Together everyday
We made our getaway

Her daddy packed up his pickup truck with his shotgun, and his old hound
Called the sheriff and told him he was on his way, into town
By afternoon the whole town knew what was going on, that we were gone
Mr. Jones said he saw us parked at the wedding place, by the Tucker farm
Bout the time the preacher said
With this ring I thee wed her daddy was through the door
I was starin? down a double barrel shotgun
And he just dropped it to the floor

Chorus

Bridge
Now our children sit and listen
While grandpa reminisces
He tells them bout the one that got away

Last chorus
And headed for the state line
And they made good time
By the morning light
His little girl was mine
Now our children track
Cross the beaten path
Over grandpa?s way
They play there everyday
We are so in love
And it all happened cause
We made our getaway
