Shannon Testo

Testo Shannon

VERSE 1 Shannon was the preacher's only daughter Living in a small town on the edge of nowhere Went to high school with her girlfriends She was different but she always tried to fit in A Sunday sermon in a church filled with solemn faces Late at night daddy liked to touch her secret places Momma closed her eyes denying everything she'd seen Shannon ran away from home when she was sixteen CHORUS: Shannon, where are you now? You've got to find your way through somehow Close your eyes, 'cause it won't be long When a new day will dawn VERSE 2 A lonely girl collecting pieces of her broken life She meets Jimmy and he asks her if she'll be his wife Shannon knows their relationship can never last But she is desperately trying to forget her past Soon she's left alone to raise her growing children Jim gets drunk each night then staggers home and beats them Shannon fears that their gonna have to run away She thinks he'll kill her if she stays with him another day REPEAT CHORUS GUITAR SOLO ERPEAT CHORUS
