My Mind Slips Away

Somewhere between the Ocmulgee and Tallapoosa
My mind slips away back beyond yesterday
A dew with some jack
A tee top chevy a Skynyrd eight track
Play it pretty for Atlanta always takes me back
 
I still feel the sun shining on your face
Making memories that time can't erase
We drove that chevy into the night
Passing through jukin city
like on an airplane flight

Playing tracks 2 and 3 over and over
for what seemed like an eternity
Your simple man was all I ever wanted to be
Time gave me a life without you
Its been simple but somehow I always knew
With the wind Tuesday gone
All that left is a memory and this song.
 
I still drink my dew with some jack
With every sip it takes me back
Time drifted us apart
Now my grandkids fill my heart
So many years have passed by
Your memories still fall from my eye
You lost my last name
A bird I couldn't change
Free bird you'll always be...
