Jeb Loy Nichols Website – Lyrics:

“HEAVEN RIGHT HERE

I got penny change in my pocket
I got heaven on my mind
I got a gravel road, twenty miles
Gonna spend a little time
For the ways of the world seem to frustrate
Always stealing food off of the next plate
Only hate is our fate and it’s too late
All we get is a crumb from the big cake

So I’ll just take my time
And relax my mind
So I’ll stop – slow down
Watch the sun go down

Come on over to my yard
Sit around and let your troubles all disappear
Come on over to my yard
‘Cause right now heaven’s right here

It was bright and sunny in the morning
Afternoon clouds gave chase
I don’t wanna take my place in their rat race
As for love there’s no trace on their face
It chills me right down to my back bone
And it’s lonesome when you’re so far from home
And when the world that they’ve made starts to fall down
I’ll be here so why don’t you just come around”

The first time I herd this song (shortly after it’s release) was on the World Cafe with David Dyes. Jeb Loy Nichols did an acoustical version in the studio…I loved the lyrics. The chorus really hit a chord…

“Come on over to my yard
Sit around and let your troubles all disappear
Come on over to my yard
‘Cause right now heaven’s right here”

After hearing that song a few times I was forced to go online and chase down the CD. Before long I followed up with his next CD.

If you get the chance…have a listen.
