Lila What Haven't You Done?

by: Nicole Upchurch


Lila what haven’t you done?
Lila what haven’t you done?
Oh Lila, what haven’t you done? 

She sang at the church downtown,
when she sang all the people gathered around.
They claimed she sang for god,
but she knew her voice was her own.

Oh Lila….

Oh Lila what haven’t you done?
You Fell in love with a couple guys,
But you gave your vows to one.
And your love, he was a farmer,
and he was a dreamer like yourself.

Oh Lila, Oh…

Oh Lila where haven’t you been?
You’ve been raising four children, pigs, a rooster, and some hens
And you traveled in the war
Then you traveled some more
Just to make sense of what you’d seen
Oh Lila, oh, life it ain’t no dream

Lila your gone now
Your memory has slipped from this busy world somehow
And I’m singing this song
At least they’ll your name
