Song Description

A story about being strong, It's about a woman who is raised by her father, (whose wife has left him) and goes on to marry an abusive man, she remembers how her father 'moved on' when her mother left, and thinks that she can be strong, and also live on her own. And she tells her daughter the same, be strong, when love is wrong, move on.

Lyrics

Ride On FAWM 2015 Nanci Hobson February 9, 2015

I grew up an only child...in the only house within five miles
just the two of us, me and my Dad
Mom had moved on when I was young...I never knew where she'd gone
If he missed her, well I never asked.
my Dad and I were always close...maybe it was cause we were all alone
till the day he died he was like a friend
he taught me to shoot and he bought me a gun...but most of all taught me to be strong
and he told me, again and again
If you're gonna live fast, drink slow
Ride hard , aim high, shoot long
When love...Is wrong
Let go ...ride on ...ride on
Met him at a tailgate party one night
We never even made it to the concert inside
Fell in love over chicken wings and beer
A few months later thinking well it's done
And we found a three room rental in town
Two stories high, an' one long set of stairs
It wasn't bad till the baby cried, too loud, too long, too many times
I started wearing long sleeves to hide my shame
When he hit me harder, I got scared
I stood in the mirror, took a look at myself
And I remembered what my Dad used to say
If you're gonna live fast, drink slow
Ride hard , aim high, shoot long
When love...Is wrong
Let go ...ride on ...ride on.
It's been fifteen years I've been alone
Seems every year there's deeper snow
But I've never had one regret
Saw a touch of gray in my hair this morn
and it's hard sometimes when the nights are cold
but I'd be cold in the ground if I'd never left
My girl's grown now she's her Momma's child
A little headstrong and a little wild
But I try to understand
Got her Grandpa's eyes and her Daddy's smile
And I love her so hard, it hurts inside
And I tell her, I tell her every chance I can
If you're gonna live fast, drink slow
Ride hard , aim high, shoot long
When love...Is wrong
Let go ...ride on ...ride on
Let go...ride on...ride on
