Moving Oleta Lyrics

Moving Oleta - Reba McEntire

Moving Oleta was the hardest thing he'd done

 

The nurses saw an old woman cryin

 

But he saw the love of his life

 

She don't know where she is

But she knows this isn't home

 

Love is a hard hard road

 

He met her in the summer of thirty-seven

In a brush arbor down on the Rush Creek shore

 

He loved her black hair and the mischief in her smile

But she won him with her eyes

 

All the years and children gone

 

He still sees her the same

 

Love is a hard hard road

 

He woke up and mornin' and drove into town

He stayed all day til her dinner came

 

Then he took her to her room

Leaned on her wheelchair like a walker

And covered her with a quilt that she'd made

Only God and a couple of nurses

Helped the old man shoulder the load

 

Love is a hard hard road

 

He said They tell me this is all that's left

 

Say this hell on earth is best

 

I list all those reasons and I still don't understand

 

He cursed his body old and weak

 

Tears of failure burned his cheeks

He said Oh don't you know

I prayed to die before this day

Love is a hard hard road

 

There's a shadow much darker

Than the shadow of death

When you fear the reaper might not come today

 

They line 'em up in Laz-E-Boys out

In the sunroom

The TV keeps the quiet away

 

She can't recall his name

And she's the only love he's known

 

Love is a hard hard road

 

Love is a hard hard road

 

Moving Oleta was the hardest thing he'd done
