Song Description

Upbeat bluegrass song with rockin' dobro solo. Great story song about an orphan who becomes a gospel singer - lots of humor.

Story Behind the Song

Child is found in a buggy at the Family Dollar Store. After numerous foster homes she escapes at the age of fourteen to follow her dream and become a gospel singer. She is a huge succes but not without regrets - lots of humor in the ending.

Lyrics

Well she was born with a notion, she never had a doubt
She was born with a melody ringing in her heart
And she was born with the voice of an angel she was told
She was born with a faith that never would run cold

Chorus:
Singing eye, eye eye
His love runs high
Believe in Him and you'll never die

Well she was found in a buggy at the Family Dollar store
And she was handed in to the authorities of the Rigby police force
And she was passed on to the city, and then a foster home
She stayed locked in the closet but she never was alone

Chorus:

She broke loose and ran away at the age of fourteeen
Joined up with a gospel singing group and toured the whole country
She stayed poor and hungry but never payed it any mind
'Cause she was rich in the treasures of the Lord and knew there'd come a time

Chorus:

Well the 'Eye Of The Needle' went to number one
And she felt aweful guilty 'bout the things that she had done
But she thought long and hard and long and finally found a way
To get back in the grace of God she built Heritage USA
