Story behind the song
There have been too many.
This Story Goes J. Michael Tracy (ballad) (verse) Once upon a lonely time The boy did not come back to school Never one to start a fight Never one to break the rules “Innocent and naive”, his teachers said “How in hell does someone like that wind up dead? Maybe there was something that we missed, things we never knew” (verse) His Mama liked to stay at home At least that’s what they all thought He never talked about his Paw He wanted to be an Astronaut His dreams were going to take him, to the sky Find hisself some wings, so he could fly But even dreams of innocents can die, ended by a single shot (bridge) Sometimes we look, but we can’t see Buried deeply under lock and key A child with a broken life that never heals Right in front of you and me (verse) One day the old man came home drunk Started beatin’ on his Maw The boy jumped in to save her For him it was the last straw The man reached in his jacket, pulled out a gun Before his clouded mind could think he’d killed his only son On and on this story goes to start again Cause he won’t be the only one On and on this story goes to start again…… Cause he won’t be the only one By J. Michael Tracy 6/99
