Settle Down Maddy(lu)

by: Nicole Upchurch


I left my home and set out to find me
Set out to find just who I was
Found that who I was I left behind me
Left it behind in that rich, black Iowa mud

And all of my friends
They said, "Settle down, Maddy"
Settle for a long, white dress and grandma's gold band
Still can't explain, this stirring inside me
Still stirring in this restless heart and ring-less hand

Settle down, settle down
Settle down, Maddy
Settle for a long white dress and grandma's gold band

Settle down, settle down
Settle down, Maddy
You can't get anywhere Wandering 'round

Been traveling long,
Been traveling lonely,
Tryin' to dodge the heat of these hot Dakota plains
I'm gonna make my home in old Montana
And linger longer in the wild and sweet Bitter Root Range

Settle down, settle down
Settle down, Maddy
Settle for a long white dress and grandma's gold band

Settle down, settle down
Settle down, Maddy
You can't get anywhere wandering 'round

You can't get anywhere wandering 'round

They say "You can't get anywhere"
but I'm still  Wandering 'round
