I Flew Over Our House Last Night Lyrics

by Tom T. Hall

That old Kentucky moon was shinin' bright as day
The stars were twinklin' in the Milky Way
The pilot said, "If you look close, there's Frankfurt on the right"
I flew over our house last night

Thirty thousand feet below me, you were fast asleep
Thirty thousand feet above I almost stopped to weep
So close and yet so far away, so wrong and yet so right
I flew over our house last night

For just one second I thought I was back in town
The man your friends all say has only brought you down
The airline hostess asked me, "Sir, are you sure that you're alright?"
I flew over our house last night

Thirty thousand feet below me, you were fast asleep
And thirty thousand feet above I almost stopped to weep
I wonder did you toss and turn as I roared out of sight
I flew over our house last night
