Frances Matney Woodard (1922 – 1991) was born in Huntington, Texas the eldest daughter of a Methodist minister. After working for the US Military during World War 2, she attended and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. After marrying, she settled in Longview, Texas where she was very active as a Sunday school teacher, youth & children’s choir director, church secretary, choir member, songwriter, and soloist at her Church and throughout East Texas.

She was a Spirit-filled believer who loved the Lord. She was a prolific writer who dedicated her last years in this world to writing songs and poetry, many that were never distributed or published outside the family. I am very proud to share some of her writing with the world. I pray that it blesses you. — Harrison Woodard

 

Don’t Go Where You Can’t Go Back

By Frances Matney Woodard

(1922 – 1991)

 

Don’t break a heart anymore

Don’t go away too far

Don’t go where you can’t turn back

Don’t run away anymore

 

Don’t be bitter

Or be a rebel

Stay on the level

Don’t run away anymore.

 

Don’t just look for fun

Or see how much you can run

Don’t chase the crowd

Don’t lead the pack

See there’s much more to do

There’s much in life for you

Don’t run away anymore.

 

Don’t go looking just for fun

Or see how much you can run

You should see there’s more to do

Don’t chase a crowd

Don’t lead the pack

Don’t go where you can’t turn back.
