There's three bedrooms, hardwood flooring and the kitchen's new
It's got everything a family needs with a backyard view
Ask anyone where it is, everybody knows
Who used to live here, where the tall grass grows.
The couple who lived there before they kept it up
But since they left that big old yard looks a little rough
And God I miss that little boy who always kept it mowed
We say still lives where the tall grass grows.
So come by and get the key go make yourself at home.
Take all the time you need, wish I could come along
But I'd sooner build a fire then walk across it slow
And to thank those burning memories where the tall grass grows.
Yes, I'd sooner build a fire then walk across it slow
Than face those burning memories where the tall grass grows
Can't go back and face those memories where the tall grass grows...
