I'm In Asheville
written by John Hiatt

I'm in Asheville, I'm sorry
I guess I dropped the ball
In this game we were playing
I thought I'd given it my all

Just to get us back to zero
Or on Some scorecard anyhow
I'm in Asheville, I'm sorry
For throwing in the towel

As sunlight rode the mountain
And the rain chased me down
I could feel the heat from your face
I almost turned around

There's some things you can't come back from
If there's some things you won't go through
I'm in Asheville I'm sorry
I wanted this with you

On a road I never traveled
To a place I've never been
From these leftover feelings
A vision of you comes up again

And your dancin' by the radio
In some hotel room in my mind
And I'm in Asheville and I'm sorry
Forever leaving you behind

I'm in Asheville I'm sorry
For leaving you behind
