Old Abandoned Boardwalk (country)

Lyrics
Well, I signed her lawyer's papers, stuffed 'em in that envelope
And I quickly said goodbye to any final shred of hope
Walked the empty sidewalks there as the sky grew old and dark
And I stumbled on an old condemned
Seaside amusement park
Uh huh

Bought the cheapest bottle at a beach-front liquor store
Then I snuck in through a fence between some old rotted boards
Watched the love scenes play out there of all that we had been
Just fade to grey and float away
Like torn-up tickets on the wind

And that boardwalk on the coast
Was a carnival of ghosts
Sunset low on the wooden roller coaster
Hangin' there like a psychedelic poster
My regrets began to echo and talk
All along our old abandoned boardwalk
Oo

So I tipped my wine and past the dried-up water slide
Where restless moonlight shadows slowly painted that old ride
Maybe cast by lovers that once did happen there
Like we left a trace in that place
And it remembered me and her
Um hmm

Though they boarded up the broke-down Magic Night arcade
Bells were still there ringing from the games we always played
Saw the rust upon the busted tilt-a-whirl
I wished it'd spin, a time again
When I met that lovely girl

And that boardwalk on the coast
Seemed to watch me like a ghost
And the wine became a fun house mirror
Where I saw our crooked paths much clearer
My remorse began to echo and talk
All along our old abandoned boardwalk

Her footprints in the sand seemed to follow me
Like my foggy past always knew where I would be
Guess that both our dreams, they still remembered us
'Cause I turned around and there she was

And that boardwalk on the coast
Was a carnival of ghosts
Oh the air was warm, the night was misty
We shared some wine and then she kissed me
And our love began to echo and talk
All along that old abandoned
All along that old abandoned boardwalk
Oo
