I got the DIrty Kid
Takin my passenger side
Cruisin mountain highways
Behind Canadian lines
Passin freight-liners whining
Up them switchback routes
Lookin for a litte somethin
That I do believe we found

I'll take another cup of joe
Keep those train beats runnin
Keep the pickin up the pace
And the melodies are hummin
I got the good-bye blues behind me
And the warm hello still comin
I'll be back this way again
But honey I won't be rushin

All the greats sing through my radio
The sun she's shinin overtime
Visions of the home I left
Are slippin quickly from my mind
The kid and I have dyin days
Make the memories shine like gold
Till the song is sung
And the story tellin is told

Friends you pick up on the way
Will help you drink those dollars dry
When You're pockets empty son
Just pull some love down from the sky
And if it's road to nowheresville
We'll roll on anyhow
I used to be a coyote
But I think I'm alright Noooooooowwwwwwww

Beer and whiskey through the night
Behind the wheel all day
Surely a man ain't got too long
Keeping on this way
While the good times are good gettin
Lord tha's where I'm gonna stay
In the cradle of the mountain
Rollin down the song highway

It'll only take listening to one or two lines and you will find a writer of considered craft, carrying values nested in a time of country folk music where all that mattered was the song itself. ... more
