KENTUCKY
Lyrics and music by Muriah Rose (Admin BMI 2016)

It's not in the clean life,
and I know it's not in fear
The blessing came somewhere between
the cigarettes and beer
Somewhere in the moment you take a long look inside
the full moon over Kentucky
or the train passing by
Never seen so many rainbows as I have this year
Not afraid of these storms anymore
What do I care?
'Cause rainbows shot through with sunlight
is the best that it can get
There's thunder in the distance now
and I cannot forget
you, your body is a song
I'll sing it everyday
sing it my whole life long
And here we walk a narrow way
between the sacred and profane
and I am not ashamed
I am not ashamed

Rolling down the highway in my beat up car
Gillian's on the radio now, she's singing a gospel song
about how there's purpose
even in this mess
And long before I walked out that door
he'd already left

And you, your body is a song
I'll sing it everyday
Sing it my whole life long
And here we walk a narrow way
between the sacred and profane
And I am not ashamed
I am not ashamed
I am not ashamed

It's not in the clean life
and I know it's not in fear
You strung yourself up for love
washed away the tears
