(Sam Tate/Annie Tate)

The farm was still standing at the end of the road
And the mailbox still carried our name
In spite of the dust and the weeds and the dust
The old place looked almost the same
The screen door was slamming real slow in the wind
Like it did ’bout this time each November
Like someone applauding the end of a dream
That no one could seem to remember

When she came around from the side of the house
She looked likde the day we first met
And before I could speak she was there in my arms
Sayin’ something I’ll never forget

She said, I knew you’d come back
My heart told me so
Men like you search every corner on earth
When there’s love here at the end of the road

It was hard to believe he was 71
The way that he still got around
His station was still full service, by gosh
And he’d fixed every car in this town
I stood in the door and saw nothin’ had changed
That stubborn old son-of-a-gun
Not the clock on the wall not the soda machine
Or the sign that said, "Miller & Son"

He said, I knew you’d come back
My heart told me so
Men like you search every corner on earth
When there’s love here at the end of the road

The roof needed mending and the walls needed paint
But the stained glass still gave them a glow
I couldn’t bear one more unanswered prayer
So I turned and I started to go
Then I heard a voice from the back of the room
That would make any sinner believe
And the words that He spoke they went right to my soul
And brought me right down to my knees

She said, I knew you’d come back
My heart told me so
Men like you search every corner on earth
When there’s love here at the end of the road
