lyrics

Steam hanging low on the heather
Burning in a flash sunrise
Speeding o’er the breast of our mother
staring’ in the blinding light
Feeling the hum of the Chevy
Passing with the speed of flight
Fleeing o’er the interstate’s belly
Keeled out on the tail of night
Tonight they’ll be sending up rockets
All up and down the interstate
The towns will be blooming with fireworks
My road on independence day
We used to right the lines all night
And go the way the road would take us
From Omaha to Lake of Salt
To the lights of Fabulous Las Vegas
A shining interstate runs through it
Over our mother country’s breast
Fifty thousand miles of hard conduit
Laid down in hard rock, blood and sweat
See the lone power station
metal palace of a thousand lights
Floating against the sky like a jewel
A beautiful and moving sight
Cool air the crack of the window
Soothing my hot forehead
Smooth like the lips of the lover
Blowing cool breath on my face
Been 10 years since you died out here
The black smoke, your soul’s ascent
Honey I don’t know where you are now
But I’ve been driving ever since
The radio sound at four o clock in the morning
I’m hearing voices that just can’t be there
I heard a country song about an abortion
I heard a preacher say he’s lost his faith
A shining interstate runs through it
Over our mother country’s breast
Fifty thousand miles of hard conduit
Laid down in hard rock, blood and sweat
Someday this road will lead back to you
Drive back to where my heart knows best
Even at the coastline I just keep going, going
Answering the sweet call of the West
