I just have to ask...You do know that's not Tracy Chapman right? Somewhat of a deceiving title on that You Tube. While I am normally a big fan of covers I have mixed feelings about that one.

How about rolling down the interstate with the Bastard Sons?

Yes, I do know that it's a cover of a Tracy Chapman song. That's what I get for being careless and copying the wrong link…
Here's the right one. Apologies to all.

In honor of Lucy's new trip . . .

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...in-170283.html

. . . here is repeat performance from Dan Seals and Marie Osmond of Meet Me In Montana.

Nice!




PS -- The next song is nice too IMO -- All That Glitters Is Not Gold -- but it's a sad one, of sorts . . .

I spent most of my formative years in Oklahoma after my dad retired from the air force. I can say two things about the state:
1 - It's better to be from Oklahoma than in Oklahoma (at least the dry, dusty, stark western half— green, wooded eastern Oklahoma ain't as bad);
2 - The reason God made Oklahoma was to keep Texas and Kansas from bumping into each other.

Oklahoma is so flat, you can stand on one beer can and see Chicago. You can stand on two beer cans and see the back of your head!

Thanks Janet, a new performer to me and a great tune!

"Pitch black, pavement, headlights
Sore back, stale scent, midnight
Car in front
License pale blue
Closin' in on home, Lucky you

"Truck stop, caffeine, 'phone call
Eavesdrop, laughing, long haul
Mileage signs
Makin' believe
Progress is made, Lucky me"

Nice!

Peter

Several years ago my band did a totally unauthorized rewrite of this tune with some airstream lyrics substituted:

Pitch black, pavement, headlights
Silver trailer in sight
Tradewind in front, License pale blue
Caravan, Lucky you

Truck stop, caffeine, 'phone call
Eavesdrop, laughing, long haul
Mileage signs, Makin' believe
Camping ahead, Lucky me
Drivin' my way under bridges and clouds
Towing my silvery dream
Deliver me safe I am saying out loud
Caravan in my shiny Airstream
Semis, new Fords, old bugs
Blue sky, billboard, Wall Drug
White box in front, Of a house with a view
Towing a ‘Stream, Lucky you

Bridge:
Free lane, yield right of way
Caution: Bambi merging
As the line grows close
Slowly, oh, exit only
To the next Rally
A-lu -mi -num - Home
Road crew, Chi-town, rainstorm
Toll booth, eyes on 94
Oasis, part of the scene
Campground in sight, Lucky me


----

There's something about the original tune that just hits me right. You can almost feel the seams in the concrete ribbon of road under your tires and the "I've been in the car a little too long and am getting funky" vibe to the lyrics is spot on.

No need for apologies, and thanks for bringing that song up. She is a wonderful artist. Give Me One Reason was another one and if you haven't heard the live version with Eric Clapton recorded in Washington DC in 1998 you owe it to yourself. Although not really a road song but who's keeping track?
