REELING DOWN A ROAD

Was it twenty years ago?  Was it only yesterday?
When we sang all night beside the ocean's roar.
Swapping stories, trading lies, bound for glory in our eyes
Waking up the next day with our faces plastered on the floor.

Reeling down a road
Reeling down a road
Reeling down a road
Finding home

Crashing bars for gas and tolls across New England and New York
Was that flat tire Burlington or Cambridge or Niagara Falls
Passing out on strangers' couches up and down Route 65
I still have that photograph from Dayton hanging on my wall

Reeling down a road
Reeling down a road
Reeling down a road
Finding home

Desperate times and Friday nights
Lullabyes and traffic lights
I'm just trying to keep it all in stride
Drinking, you were just a jester fool
'Cuz everybody gets the blues in America

Was it twenty years ago?  Was it only yesterday?
When I rang you up and bent your ear like a million times before
As I'm standing in these tattered shoes banging on this old guitar
I'll pretend we're singing all night long beside the ocean's roar

Reeling down the road
Reeling down the road
Reeling down the road
Finding home
