lyrics

Northbound on Highways southbound in the sky
I give my voice a way to busy passersby down A Carolina Road with sidewalks red leaf dyed
Falling from the trees down to the rhythms of my feet
My eyes have seen the glory of a gravid Georgia moon
She hung so low that I could sing to her a tune
She kissed my face she came and went I doubt I'll ever find a light like hers again
The sadness of the winter wind whistles through my mind
I'm crossing South Virginias Danville County line
I could not Whistle out a sad song if I tried
So I whistle on the drive and I feel happier inside
But when I sing the song is sad
I'd sing for joy if you could put it in my hat
I played an evening in the city that doesn't sleep
I saying a melody and I strummed them something sweet
They closed their eyes and listen silently to me
And I snuck out while they dreamed into the busy Brooklyn Street
My lips have kissed the liquor in my mouth has held the beer
But never have I been as drunk as when love holds me near
She pays the tab she calls the cab
She is the strongest drink I think I've ever had
I give my voice a way to friends here at the show
Out here on main street in my Gainesville city home
How many miles are we and how long is the Road
I don't know
