The 4th of march
I played a concert
In Kansas City
The next day;
The 5th of march
I took a flight back to home
Back to Tennessee
I was only 30
But I stood on the stage of Grand Ole Opry
Momma was so proud of me, I made her cry
My singing carreer made me feel so happy inside
People said I was shining so bright
Sometimes when I traveled all
My mother’s smile was there in the back of my mind;
A single sign of love to remember when I was feeling weak.
But where did it all go wrong?
Yeah I remember I played my last song,
& Stumbled into my hotelbed that night,
The 5th of march,
I took that flight.
Everything felt so right,
Until it didn’t.
The airplane lost it’s good name,
It hit the ground .
I couldn’t hear the endless cries of the passengers no more,
Everything went black before my eyes
My 30th year of life,
It didn’t end up right.
I think my momma cried tears of pain that night
I’m wondering if they’re still standing there at my grave,
Julie and Randy;
My dear daughter and son
my husband that I loved for so long.
I’m wondering if people still remember me,
when I’m on the front page of a country music magazine.
