Copperline Lyrics

Even the old folks never knew --- why they call it like they do
I was wondering since the age of two down on Copperline
Copper head, copper beech --- copper kettles sitting side by each
Copper coil, cup o'Georgia peach down on Copperline
Half a mile down to Morgan Creek --- Im only living til the end of the week
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake --- down on Copperline
Take me Down on Copperline

One Summer night on the Copperline --- slip away past supper time
Wood smoke and moonshine down on Copperline
One time I saw my daddy dance watched him moving like a man in a trance
He brought it back from the war in France down onto Copperline
Branch water and tomato wine creosote and turpentine
Sour mash and new moon shine down on Copperline
Take me Down on Copperline

Oh first kiss ever I took like a page from a romance book
The sky opened and the earth shook down on Copperline

Took a fall from a windy height -- I only knew how to hold on tight
And pray for love enough to last all night -- down on Copperline
Day breaks and the boy wakes up -- and the dog barks and the birds sings
And the sap rises and the angels sigh, yeah
I tried to go back, as if I could -- all spec house and plywood
Tore up - tore up good down on Copperline
It doesn't come as a surprise to me --- it doesn't touch my memory
But I'm lifting up and rising free down on Copperline
Half a mile down to Morgan Creek --- Im only living til the end of the week
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake --- down on Copperline
We were down on Copperline

Take me back down on Copperline
Take me down on Copperline
