    Lyrics

    She went back to Wichita
    She went back to her ma and pa
    Reckon I saw her next to my truck
    Pumping gas with the car packed up.

    We talked as neighbors will
    There waiting for the tanks to fill
    We talked about nothing
    how it might snow
    How far she had to go.

    Going back where the grass grows tall
    And the fields burn in the fall
    You can still hear the night birds call
    Back in Wichita.

    She came in '85
    She came here as a July bride
    But it never got easy
    never got rich
    Ain't got much but what she came here with.


    Good times have all been spent
    She ain't broken but she's badly bent
    There's nothing she wants here
    nothing that shines
    She's made up her mind.

    She says for all my time
    well I ain't got much to show
    You can tell that man of mine and anyone who wants to know


    Going back where the grass grows tall
    And the fields burn in the fall
    You can still hear the night birds call
    Back in Wichita.
