Eliza Jane




Get out of Oklahoma run away from all that dust
Pack up your family in that Cadillac you love so much
I hear Oregon is nice maybe you can find some work
Set up a canteen selling coffee by the bus stop

Oh, but keep playing that piano
Who knows maybe you can make it on the radio
Did you ever know your hands could do more than work the land?
Well I heard your song and I can’t get it out of my head

Were you in it for the spotlight or was it something that you needed to do?
Did it love it for the night life staying out late for a drink or two?
Can you tell me where I came from can you show me what it all means
To put the pen on a page and stand on a stage hoping that somebody believes?

Oh, but keep playing that piano
Who knows maybe you can make it on the radio
Did you ever know your hands could do more than work the land?
Well I heard your song and I can’t get it out of my head

We’re still singing your songs
You’re still giving even when you’re gone

Oh, but keep playing that piano
Who knows maybe you can make it on the radio
Did you ever know your hands could do more than work the land?
Well I heard your song and I can’t get it out of my head
