Faith In Atlanta

@ 1998 Craig Carothers & Tom Douglas

Hazel eyes and auburn hair
Linen dress with shoulders bare
Magnolia perfume on the breeze,
I keep her safe there in my memory

I can see the moonlight dancin’ on her skin
Scotch taped to the dashboard in an old 8x10
And I’ve got James Taylor on the radio
Singin’ you’ve got a friend
And don’t I know it,
That’s where I’m goin’

Back to my Faith in Atlanta,
I’ve still got Faith in Atlanta
Faith in Atlanta,
and I hope she’s still got faith in me

Seemed like such a good idea,
To make my fortune way out here
I wondered how long I would last without her by my side,
But I don’t stand a chance

It was cold in Chicago, the wind cut right through
And the New York skyline, that’s a breath taking view
Yeah, everything they say about the big towns is true
But they don’t know me and they can’t hold me

Not like my Faith in Atlanta,
I’ve still got Faith in Atlanta
Faith in Atlanta,
and I hope she’s still got faith in me

They say you can’t go home again, but they’re not always right
‘cause just like that midnight train I’ll be headed there tonight

Faith in Atlanta,
I’ve got my Faith in Atlanta
Faith in Atlanta,
and I hope she’s still got faith in me
Faith in Atlanta,
I’ve still got Faith in Atlanta
Faith in Atlanta,
and I know she’s still got faith in me
