Story

Written in the bitter sweet feeling of letting your children go and getting on with your own life. Not easy!

Lyrics

Billy Brown Road

I dropped my girl off to get on with her life

I’m a burned out mother and a bored house wife

Flying down Billy Brown road

Skirting the overload

I should be crying

Instead I’m flying

Flying down Billy Brown road

Get out of this house with a paper and a pen

Bout twenty years later and I’m right where I began

Escaping down my Billy Brown road

Out from under the overload

I’m just getting out of here

Cause I’m nowhere near

Escaping down Billy Brown road

Its the middle of April under two feet of snow

The river is raging into fields it over flows

Flooding out my Billy Brown road

Churning mud of overflow

Homes washed away On an angry wet day

Flooding out my Billy Brown road

He ate my good meal then he tucked himself in bed

I’m surprised he’s not watching some freaking sporting event

Wasted on Billy Brown road

Numbing out the overload I hate that TV Sucking up reality

Wasted on Billy Brown road

So I got myself a job singing at an Inn

Under a business card sky making lots of friends

Singing on Billy Brown road

Teasing the overload

Getting along Singing folk songs

Singing on Billy Brown road

The more I search for me the more quiet I become

My enthusiasm on a slow and steady run

Quiet on Billy Brown road

Accepting the overload

Strong now I can take

Aware now I’m awake

Quiet on Billy Brown road

My girl gives me a call Hey Ma when you coming home

Lets make an Oma chicken dinner an Eddie dog is all alone

Home on my Billy Brown road

Safe to my overload

To my have a heart trap

I’ll spring it an go back

Home on Billy Brown road

Home on Billy Brown road
