1st Place
“This Side Of Sanity”
Written by Laura Busey

I lost my mind in Tennessee
Beneath the Broadway lights
I’m goin’ home with all that’s left of me
Another star that didn’t shine

(Chorus)
Now it’s good to be
On this side of sanity
It’s good to be
On my way home
It’s good to be
On this side of sanity
Where I belong

I watched my dreams fade to shadows
At the bottom of a beer
A wanna-be legend nobody knows
With a voice they’ll never hear

(Chorus)
But it’s good to be
On this side of sanity
It’s good to be
On my way home
I can’t wait to be
In West Virginia
Where I belong

Oh it’s good to be
On this side of sanity
It is good to be
On country roads
It’s good to be
Wild and wonderful
I’m coming home
To this side of sanity
