One You Chose, The


Give a man a yeller and he’ll be your friend forever

Give a man a speckled bird and he’ll never leave your side

And darling, truly making love will take you higher than the mountains

And you take you what it takes you boy to make your spirit rise


Me and you are moving to a truly new dimension

Full of new surprises on this river that we’re riding

Darling, up ahead is crazy with the freedom and it’s wilder

Welcome to the one you chose to run there by your side


Maybe what you see is what you got and what you wanted

Take me at my word that it’s the best that I can be

I will go down trying hard to teach you how to trust me

And I’ll love you ‘til it happens darling or eternity


Holding on to something that keeps holding us together

Stronger than the circumstances tearing us apart

I’ve just got a feeling, if I’m wrong you can correct me

I believe I just sang my way back in your heart
