Lyrics

Not In Iowa

I left my country home, left the fields and plains
To feel the desert wind, escape the rain
But she saw me coming from a thousand miles away
She took my hand and asked my name

She led me to her house and fed me Spanish wine
Up ‘till then I’d of swore I was doing fine
But she said you never smile and it’s starting to creep me out
I should have listened to my doubt

So take that gun and make me swallow
And I’ll be smiling forevermore
My head is spinning and my eyes can’t find the door
I’m not in Iowa anymore

I miss my country home, I miss the corn and beans
This sand it’s in my lungs, I could really use some rain
She turned the lights down and crept up close to me
So I would feel what I could not see

Just take that gun and make me swallow
And I’ll be smiling forevermore
My hands are tied now and my feet won’t touch the floor
I’m not in Iowa anymore
Not in Iowa anymore
