Turn One More Corner

Another Darren O'Dell original up on Youtube:

Turn One More Corner by Darren O'Dell ©

Once they walked down by the river
She had that ribbon in her hair
She whispered to him forever
He's a long long way from there

But I know just where to find him
It's where he's always been
Turn one more corner, down one more backstreet
Up the road and around the bend

We grew up on the same street
From a town no one knows
His old man would lay it on him hard
He thought he didn't let it show

When it gets quiet I think about him
How his means never met the ends
Turn one more corner, down one more backstreet
Up the road and around the bend

Well he met her over in Vicksburg
That woman's love it set him free
Three seasons passed and they were married
At her old home place near Metairie

Got a call around 2 AM
Big news, I heard him cry
His wife she was expecting
A baby girl come mid July

Sometimes I ride out past the trestles
When the pain comes rolling in
Turn one more corner, down one more backstreet
Up the road and around the bend

Got a call around 2 AM
He was wailing through the telephone
Something bout a southbound semi
His wife and baby girl were gone

I drove ten straight hours
Just to be there by his side
Longest night of my lifetime
He was long gone when I arrived

But I know just where to find him
Hell It's where he's always been
Turn one more corner, down one more backstreet
Up the road and around the bend

Somethings you just can't explain
I gave up trying years ago
I never did hear from him
Don't think I even want to know
