What Did That Bring?

from Ticket to Fly by Mike Lawson & Friends



Written on the tour bus while on the road in 1992, this foreboding tale of about what his future would probably hold


I got out here with my uncle, and I brought me two good fingers
It don't matter what I'm burning, there's this one still thought that lingers
I left Columbus, drove to Wheeling, just to try to catch that feeling
What did that bring? Oh, what did that bring?

When you left here Sunday morning, you told me you weren't returning
It's a long hard road to travel, where I guess that's what I'm learning
I called you Tuesday night from Lansing but I guess your phone ain't answering
What did that bring? Oh, what did that bring?

You won't touch me with that look in your eye or the tears on your face
You're not crying 'cuz you're leaving, just because I won't be grieving

I got something more to tell you, so I'll just come out and say it
The way you spoke about your vow I never thought you could obey it
I walked from Memphis down to Macon, 'cuz it kept my heart from breaking
What did that bring? Oh, what did that bring?
