Lyrics



When I got discharged I caught the first Greyhound
It was a lonesome ride, but I was Alabama bound
I saw the mean sunrise and then I saw the light

When I hit Mobile I called my friend Jolene
She was too damn busy to meet me out for a drink
Heard what she could not say – felt her turn away

Well, my so- called friends, they all grew strange
They say I’m different – yes, I guess that I’ve changed
I learned to take the blow – I don’t take no more
Cause I got new eyes – I felt the friendly fire

It hurt so bad, I like to thought I died
When they turned away I grew numb inside
Thought I was going home – now I don’t belong
I felt so betrayed – guess I’ll keep moving on

The first day home, saw the mean sunrise
Burned by the friendly fire
The first day home, saw the mean sunrise
Burned by the friendly fire

The first day home, saw the mean sunrise
Burned by the friendly fire

The first day home, saw the mean sunrise
Burned by the friendly fire
