sonnerie téléphone portable pour I had my hopes up high
Clip vidéo

Well, i left my home out on the great high plains
Headed for some new terrain
Standin' on the highway with my coffee cup
A wonderin' who was gonna pick me up

I had my hopes up high, i never thought
That i would ever wonder why i ever said goodbye
I had my hopes up high

Well, the first ride i got was in a dynamite truck
The driver kept tellin' me his bad luck
As we swerved around the curves, i began to shout
I said, "hey mister would you let me out?"

I had my hopes up high, i never thought
That i would ever wonder why i ever said goodbye
I had my hopes up high

And the next ride i got was with a man in trouble
The beard on his face was all in a stubble
Runnin' from the law he was goin' ninety-nine
I said, "hey mister, you're out of your mind"

I had my hopes up high, i never thought
That i would ever wonder why i ever said goodbye
I had my hopes up high

And the next ride i got was with a preacher man
Told me that the wicked would be buried in sand
I don't know why i did it but i lost control
I said, "ho papa, would you save my soul?"

I had my hopes up high, i never thought
That i would ever wonder why i ever said goodbye
I had my hopes up high

And i finally got a ride on a carnival train
Nearly blew away in a hurricane
I got to thinkin' bout that preacher down in louisianne
Now i'm sittin' on the delta siftin' sand

I had my hopes up high, i never thought
That i would ever wonder why i ever said goodbye
I had my hopes up high

I never thought
That i would ever wonder why i ever said goodbye
I had my hopes up high
