Halfway To Hollywood
Lyrics
Halfway to Hollywood


It's 1500 miles or more to where the sandy shores
meet the California sun...
In my mind I can see her now...
Got the top rolled down and she's singing that damned ole song...
She's an American girl... with stars in her eyes and runaway dreams...
She took her cat, her guitar, and just the clothes on her back...
But she left with my everything...

She must be halfway to Hollywood...by now...
She said she never would understand how...
I could spend my whole life kickin around..
Some backwards backwoods town...
She must be halfway to Hollywood by now

I bet you if I left right now...put hammer down..
I'd catch up to her by dawn..
Or I could sit here and kick myself
Every time they put Tom Petty on
I could call her cell
But she knows me well enough to know I won't
Cause it's all right if she loves me...
Its all right if she don't...

Chorus


Bridge
Nothing but gravel and dust...
Not a word was spoken...
Now she's into the great wide open..

Lord knows I don't blame the girl
Hell...most folks wanna see their name in lights...
But there's stars enough for me right here... burning up this Oklahoma sky...
The interstate it runs both ways and I know she'll find..
That nothing shines as bright as the love you leave behind


She must be halfway to Hollywood...by now...
Giver her time I know she'll figure out...
How I could spend my whole life kickin around..
Some backwards backwoods town...
She must be halfway to Hollywood by now


It's 1500 miles or more to where the sandy shores
meet the California sun...
