Sara Evans listen  "Missing Missouri" by Sara Evans (Mark Kerr/Trent Tomlinson/Danny Wells)

1st Verse

I love my life
Love my husband
Without those kids
Man, I ain't nothin'
I love my fans
Love my band
Love my little Tennessee piece of land
Sometimes my life can get so hectic
And out of the blue
When I least suspect it
Somewhere between the hubbub and the drama
I get to thinkin' 'bout mama, and I'm


Caught up in missin' Missouri
'Cause I wanna be with my family
Instead of stuck out on this road I'm on, and
Every time my bus wheels hit the Bootheel
There's no limelight
And I'm alright
'Cause I'm almost home
Where they love me
Where they know me
Where they show me
Back in Missouri, yeah

2nd Verse

The road just ain't no place for whiners
It's motels, truck stops, all night diners
And hopin' that your song'll sell
And havin' to smile when it ain't doin' well
Everything just gets too much
And I feel like I'm givin' up
I close my eyes and say a little prayer
And it's like I'm there, and I'm

(Repeat Chorus)


Late summer nights
Sneakin' out the window
Me and the girls
Drivin' down the back roads
Tobacco fields and bumblebees
And the Cardinals playin' on TV, and I'm

(Chorus Out)
