MIDDLE OF NOWHERE

MIDDLE OF NOWHERE - Lyrics by John Niebuhr and music by Steven Jent
00:00

[Verse]

Tired leg, it may be dead.  

Thanks Ohio. 

Headed north, the days are short, 

the nights they try you. 

[Chorus]

Come along, sing my song: 

"Middle of Nowhere." 

Zero degrees locks my knees.

My heart's a rockin' chair.  

Below or above, no one to love

in the middle of nowhere.  

Headed south, warm my mouth. 

Maybe you'll be waiting there.  

I was wrong. Sing my song 

through the middle of nowhere.  

[Verse]

Headed up headed down. 

Where will the needle rest? 

Hollow ground is falling down 

maybe I should go west. 

 

[Chorus]

One hundred degrees following me, 

giving me that long stare.  

Been dead too long to sing this song 

in the middle of nowhere. 

Come along, sing my song. 

Maybe I'll find you here. 

Scornful trees follow me 

giving me that long stare.

Their roots grow long and sing this song 

in the middle of nowhere.
