(GUITAR INTRO)

if I fell off to sleep and did not wake

a-would the Lord my soul to take

and could the land that I've known also die

do you think of you and wonder why



down in leatherwood

that thought we leave behind

down in leatherwood

country love's gonna steal your mind

and we ain't never gonna be blue, be blue



was a mad house all flooded by the rain

or did I once live it in a dream

a-throwing all good minutes to the sea

did you know the sky can also bleed



down in leatherwood

that thought we leave behind

down in leatherwood

country love's gonna steal your mind

and we ain't never gonna be blue, be blue

(GUITAR SOLO)



an inner voice, it is telling me my verse

oh and if you're listening it can only make it worse

it maybe that there is a master plan

oh he who knows, he must be a great man



down in leatherwood

that thought we leave behind

down in leatherwood

country love's gonna steal your mind

and we ain't never gonna be blue, be blue

be blue,

be blue,

be blue
