Dad, nephew, uncle and friend I mount trucker wheels drive to no end

bumper to bumper from floor to all doors chromed metal sun simmers to blinding eyes glimmers

eighteen wheels at the READY! Inner dash red - its SET! lights now glow, racing I GO!

freightliner uncurves terra firma disturbed feel my wheels, they thumble hear them eastbound, they rumble

From sweet home California Past New Mexico to Maine East forty Arizona First night in Sedona

route 66 turns to  I-10 take it to Big Bend from Texas, my love I send but soon fatigued bored non-intrigued

fixed books and doubled logs did Texas thru the fog next day New Orleans the ten to twelve be the means into Floridas oranges and green and all sweet southern hospitality thru Saint Augustine

layover by the beauty of the keys My soul at peace one more day darling please before the grind and grease from the past I'm here released

for always there's a blue disaster on my rear view memories I try to leave behind but how beautiful tomorrow my traveled roads find!
