Her Name Was Joy

She was born beneath the Nebraska sky
With fair skin and dancing eyes
That day God sang and the angels cried
Their tears rained down and made her beautiful
The clouds subsided and a rainbow appeared so colorful
And if you followed that rainbow to the very end you'd find that baby girl

Chorus:
She could dance above the noise
A country girl's heart you can't destroy
When she got her heart broken by a boy
She refused to stay and be his toy
The earth would melt at the sound of her voice
She found that she was strong when she had no other choice
Her name was Joy

She had a baby girl of her own
At just sixteen she left home
There's things about the daddy I'll never know
Except that another baby later
She ran away before he could catch her
But it wasn't long before she found a better man to hold her

She could dance above the noise
A country girl's heart you can't destroy
When she got her heart broken by a boy
She refused to stay and be his toy
The earth would melt at the sound of her voice
She found that she was strong when she had no other choice
Her name was Joy

She could dance above the noise
A country girl's heart you can't destroy
When she got her heart broken by a boy
She refused to stay and be his toy
The earth would melt at the sound of her voice
She found that she was strong when she had no other choice
Her name was Joy

She closed her eyes for the last time beneath the Indiana sky
With pale skin and tired eyes
That day God sang and the angels cried
And so did I
