Track Name: From Day One
FROM DAY ONE music/words: bill mallonee
It was an empty page and the margins were free
at least that’s how you...described it to me
and your boots wandered the earth; across the hills and traces
and you said that it all knew you...on a first name basis
Chorus:
And the sky held a sun...and it shown on your heart from day one
and the sky was your friend...
and the sky will take you back again

You knew about the language used by springtime
in Missouri
when rays warm your face...and the earth she is a-buzzin’
ya’ learned to speak in tongues as your team pulled the rig
and it made your hands strong...and it made your heart big
(Repeat chorus 1)

Ya’ found a pretty wife and you called her your best friend
and you leaned to lose your sadness in the contiurs of her skin
You raised you up a family...but they moved on to other things
and the sky they never loved it...quite the way you did

And the one that held the sun...that shown on your heart from day one
and the sky was your friend...
and the sky will take you back again

It was an empty page and the margins were free
at least that’s how you...described it to me
and your boots wandered the earth; across the hills and traces
and you said that it all loved you...on a first name basis

And the sky held the sun...that shown on your heart from day one
and the sky was your friend...
and the sky will take you back again
and the sky will take you back again
