lyrics

Hello there, Virginia
It's great to be in town
I just drove five hours down
Old Highway 39

I'll sing a few then I gotta go
So glad you could stick around
You can stay with me
But only for a night

In the morning when I'm leavin'
I'll be leavin' you behind
Don't buy me no postcards
Don’t look for mine

If I look to the east and see you
Standin' outside my door
I'll believe it
But only for a night

And I'll be down
You'll be down and out too
You'll be cursed
I'll be cursed without you
Yeah, I'll be cured
Then you’ll be gone and carefree
And when you drive to Austin
You'll go without me

In the morning when I'm leavin'
I'll be leavin' you behind
Don't buy me no postcards
Don’t look for mine
If I look to the east and see you
Standin' outside my door
I'll believe it
But only for a night

about

The Federales Minneapolis, Minnesota

Classic country for the modern world. We're not from the Black Hills, the Texas Panhandle, or Appalachia. We're from the Twin Cities. Damn proud of it, too, but we play country music, because it's one of America's native languages. We're pickers, fiddlers, groovers, and harmonizers. We're ready to make you sing along, get up and dance, or just sit and tap your toes. We're The Federales. ... more
