Kimberly Kime songs
Written by myself, Mitch Collins and Brenda Kornblum

By Heart

Verse:
My old faithful, first name John, last name Deere
We memorized these fields we've worked through the years
Dirt soaks up my sweat like sweet summer rain
This farm is in my blood and homegrown's in my veins

Grandpa built the house where I took my first steps
Behind the barn, where I smoked my first and last cigarette
Broke my pitching arm in that oak tree out back
Our favorite fishing hole caught my tears, when I lost dad

Chorus:
This place knows me by heart, it's heard the laughter
Felt the pain in every scar, wrote all the chapters
Each page bookmarked, yeah, this place knows me by heart

Verse:
These walls have heard me cuss underneath my breath
The floorboards by my bed know every prayer I've said
Front porch saw me stumble through my first kiss
Now it holds a swing that gently rocks my wife and kids

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
When I'm laid in the grave, want my headstone to say
"He found his quiet comfort here"
Right here....

Repeat Chorus

This is one of those lyrics that make me say "Damn, I wish I wrote that." Great work here! Nice melody, arrangement, guitar and vocal also.
