Down The Road A Piece
Riding the storm out and on a dark horse at that.
It's maddening, no doubt, just holding on to your hat
as the rustling wind in the trees
leads you down the road a piece.
Over and under till you come back around again
stealing the thunder and trying to outrun the rain
and up ahead a pack of wild geese
free fly down the road a piece.
Queen of the highway, she once made the meadows green.
You're looking sideways but she's nowhere to be seen
but still everybody agrees she's back down the road a piece.
Selling you notions, people, they say you need some.
So much commotion about nothing and no one
and you can't stop riding the breeze.
Please get down the road a piece.
Kites and the lightning, electricity's the trick.
You keep on riding, you might see how it ticks
and the man with the skeleton keys,
he's back down the road a piece.
