Cory Cole
Stayed There
I hear thunder in the canyon
Keep an ear to the ground
Like shot out from a cannon
This new life I found
Forgotten then abandoned
Once the deal went down
I hit the ground running
And I stayed there

I stayed there
Stayed there
I stayed there
stayed there

On my side of the mountain
You keep your head down
Cause trouble comes in all directions
For thirty days and counting
You get money when I'm found
I dug myself a hole
And I stayed there


Broken down and missing
What I used to call home
I wake up now I listen
For the hellhounds on my trail
A soldier on a mission
Another wanted man
I'll find the promised land
And I'll stay there
