Where Angels Hang Around

(James Otto / Monty Criswell)

A hundred miles out of Little Rock
Windshield full of rain
I-40 eastbound drivin while I pray
Shes asleep in the backseat
Holdin tight to her teddy bear
Shes got her daddys smile and her mommas hair
But one word knocked our lives off track
Just one word keeps us comin back

Chorus:
Across the Mississippi
A mile or two from Beale Street
Not too far from Graceland
Where the king of rock and roll sleeps
To a place for children
Where God sends his mercy rainin down
In the heart of Memphis
Where angels hang around

All the deals Ive made with God
The conversations that weve had
Tryin to accept things I could not understand
I wanna walk her down the aisle
While those church bells ring
See her get the chance
To live all her dreams
But one word knocked our lives off track
Just one word keeps us comin back

Chorus

So sleep tight baby while these four wheels roll
Cause just beyond the clouds theres a ray of hope

Theres a place for children
Where God sends his mercy rainin down
In the heart of Memphis
Where angels hang around
