(YOU RUN DEEP IN ME)
in the Ozark Mountains,
Hills ablazing like that sun in the sky.
I fell in love there, and the fire is still burning
A flame that never will die.
Oh, I may wander,
but when I do
I will never be far from you.
You're in my blood and I know you'll always be.
Arkansas you run deep in me.
on a delta levee,
To a band of frogs and whippoorwill
I lost my heart there one July evening
And it's still there, I can tell.
Mallards sailing on a December wind.
God bless the memories I keep recalling
Like an old Familiar friend.
And there's a river
rambling through the fields
Smooth and steady as she makes her way south,
A lot like the people whose names she carries.
She goes strong, and she goes proud.
