Shooter Jennings Sweet Savannah Lyrics

So it comes to the end of the day

And I’m checking out of my hotel room today

It’s been two years since I’ve seen your face

The girl beside me reminds me how you taste

Since I’ve seen you, I’ve been beaten down and bruised

And everyday I’m feeling more and more misused

I never thought that I would be without your love

Years gone by, you’re still the one I’m thinking of

Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright

May the evening bring your favorite night

Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long

But I’ve got to move on

It’s gettin’ cold, I put my jacket on your back

And we smoke a cigarette, the last one in the pack

I still remember exactly what you said

That you had demons that you couldn’t put to bed

Now I’m leaving, yeah, I’m moving out west

And it’s time for us to lay our history to rest

I still remember a tear drop in your eye

But you know I couldn’t stand to see you cry

Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright

May the evening bring your favorite night

Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long

But I’ve got to move on

So now I close on this Hollywood night

Where this counter-culture cultivates an emptiness inside

Would it be different if you were still here in my life

Would I be sober, and would you be my wife?

Sweet Savannah, you shine so bright

May the evening bring your favorite night

Sweet Savannah, you been gone so long

But I’ve got to be movin’ on
