lyrics

A Pennsylvania girl was hopeful,
good and ready to start a family.
She always prayed to see the ocean
and meet a man who'd take her out to sea.

Sweet Melinda's got a heart of gold.
Her home is full of pictures of the Lord.
Sweet Melinda's heart won't ever quit,
'cause her story is the life within this song
that I hope you pass along.

Then they had a wedding,
praying they could not be torn.
When they moved, the town was landlocked.
Landlocked lovers in the eye of the storm.

Sweet Melinda's got a heart of gold.
Her home is full of pictures of the Lord.
Sweet Melinda's heart won't ever quit,
'cause her story is the life within this song
that I hope you pass along.

Then they had a baby:
a newborn girl with big blue eyes
deep as the whole Atlantic,
and as wide as when the herizon meets the sky.

She never saw the ocean
or swam into the tide.
But she raised a girl into a mother
that one day would then become mine.

Sweet Melinda's got a heart of gold.
Her home is full of pictures of the Lord.
Sweet Melinda's heart won't ever quit,
'cause her story is the life within this song
that I hope you pass along.
