Lovely Franklin lyrics

by Buffie Baril

Long drives on the Natchez
I made you my lady
We’d walk through The Factory
On days we were lazy
You’ve seen sunshine and you’ve seen rain
Now it’s time to move on past the pain
You’re my own hometown staycation
America’s Main Street destination
A balloon ride in the sky
Historic daytime strolls
That move me deep inside my soul
But it’s those Hallmark sidewalk views
You’re altogether lovely Franklin,
Awe, Franklin, I love you
Watchin’ legends at the Theater show
Dickens Christmases in the snow
Sharin’ Puckett’s skillet cobbler
Just to hear that ole banjo
Then drivin’ down Franklin Road to Nashville
on old Highway 31
You’re my own hometown staycation
America’s Main Street destination
A balloon ride in the sky
Historic daytime strolls
That move me deep inside my soul
But it’s those Hallmark sidewalk views
You’re altogether lovely Franklin,
Awe, Franklin, I love you
We’re singin’ songs arm in arm
A Pilgrimage to Harlinsdale Farm
And those days in Leipers Fork
With guitar pickin’ on the porch
I can’t leave your charm behind
Tennessee is always on my mind
Oh the battle has ended
We both were wounded
But you softened your heart
So it’s a brand new start
Let the teardrops go
See the Harpeth River flow
Let’s start a new day
Cause redemption’s on the way
You’re my own hometown staycation
America’s Main Street destination
A balloon ride in the sky
Historic daytime strolls
That move me deep inside my soul
But it’s those Hallmark sidewalk views
You’re altogether lovely Franklin,
Awe, Franklin, I love you
Lovely Franklin
Lovely Franklin
