I have a new favorite song...

"Backseat of a Greyhound Bus" by the hauntingly beautiful Sara Evans. Oh. My. God. This song is a celebration of life from the point of view of an unwed mom who finds true love holding her new baby girl. There really is no love like the love for feel for your child, nothing compares to it. You can hear it here, and of course I'm willing to share. (I hear tell you can download it by clicking here.) This song makes me bawl my goddamned eyes out, but it is worth it. This song really hits a nerve with me, for a lot of different reasons. This song is so many people for me. GREAT sing-along song, and it's just catchy as all hell! I have her albums Restless, Born to Fly, & No Place That Far - all I'm missing is Three Chords and the Truth. So if anyone has it and is willing to share....

Backseat of a Greyhound Bus - Sara Evans

She wore a dress with cherries on it
Going somewhere where she'd be wanted
A town this small, all they do is talk
No wedding ring cheap fingernail polish
She always wished that she could go to college
But some dreams fade, they just slip away
She started to show a few months ago
And she had to go that's how she wound up

On the backseat of a greyhound bus
Head hung down with the windows up
Staring at the rest of her life
She never thought this would be the place
Where she would find her saving grace
But she fell in love she fell in love
On the backseat of a greyhound bus

Moon was full the stars were smiling
God has a funny sense of timing
The baby came on the interstate
Somewhere between Jackson and Memphis
She finally found what she'd been missing
She cried and laughed when the red lights flashed
Sweet baby girl she looked into the face of a new
The face of a brand new world

On the backseat of a Greyhound bus,
Heart so full that it could bust.
Staring at the rest of her life.
She never thought this would be the place,
Where she would find her saving grace,
But she fell in love; she fell in love,
On the backseat of a Greyhound Bus.

She wore a dress with cherries on it
Going somewhere where she'd be wanted...
