"HEAVEN AIN'T THAT FAR AWAY" LYRICS

WRITTEN BY: ERIC DURRANCE

HEAVEN AIN'T THAT FAR AWAY

IT'S GRANDPA IN A ROCKIN CHAIR

TALKIN BOUT THE GOOD OLD DAYS

THE SMELL OF SUNDAY SUPER ON THE STOVE

AND THAT HOMEMADE APPLE PIE

THAT ONLY MY GRANDMA COULD MAKE

 

IT'S A GEORGE STRAIT SONG ON THE RADIO

A 5 HORSE JOHNSON AND AND OLD JOHN BOAT

A BOBBER AND A CANE POLE, LOOK GRANDPA I GOT A BITE

SLOWLY ROLLIN DOWN A DIRT ROAD, HAND SURFIN OUT THE WINDOW

ME SMILING UP AND HIM SAYIN,"GRANDPA CAN I DRIVE?"

A KISS ON THE CHEEK GOODBYE, CAN'T WAIT TILL THE NEXT TIME

MOMENTS LIKE THAT, NOW I CAN SAY

HEAVEN AIN'T THAT FAR AWAY

HEAVEN AIN'T THAT FAR AWAY

IT'S A SWEET TEA IN MY HAND, ON A BACK PORCH FRIDAY NIGHT

IT'S A LITTLE HOUSE ON A QUITE STREET, IT'S THE SOUND OF MY KID LAUGHING

WITH HER MAMA BY MY SIDE

IT'S A GEORGE STRAIT SONG ON THE RADIO

A 5 HORSE JOHNSON AND AND OLD JOHN BOAT

A BOBBER AND A CANE POLE, LOOK DADDY I GOT A BITE

SLOWLY ROLLIN DOWN A DIRT ROAD, HAND SURFIN OUT THE WINDOW

HER SMILING UP AT ME SAYIN,"DADDY CAN I DRIVE?"

A KISS ON THE CHEEK GOODNIGHT, GOOD MORNIN SUNSHINE

MOMENTS LIKE THAT, NOW I CAN SAY

HEAVEN AIN'T THAT FAR AWAY

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA PASSED AWAY

BUT EVERY TIME I PUT THOSE FLOWERS ON THEIR GRAVE

I'M SLOWLY ROLLIN DOWN THE DIRT ROAD, HAND SURFIN OUT THE WINDOW

LORD KNOWS I'D GO THERE IF THAT ROAD COULD TAKE ME BACK

EVERY TIME I'M IN THAT PLACE, I RE-LIVE ALL THOSE DAYS

MOMENTS LIKE THAT, NOW I CAN SAY

HEAVEN AIN'T THAT FAR AWAY...

NO IT AIN'T THAT FAR AWAY...

HEAVEN AIN'T THAT FAR...

AWAY
