Listening to the AM

from Passing Through by Owen Temple



I pulled out of Charleston West Virginia
In the middle of the night
I made it down to Nashville town
When the sun was shining bright
I'm headed out west on a four day run
And I've got to make pretty good time
I gotta make a living livin'
My life chasing down a broken white line

So I ride this road and I try to get where I'm going
A cup of coffee and thoughts of home are all that help
And I'll spend another midnight early morning
Listening to the AM and talking to myself

Kingman Arizona's
Just three hundred miles away from old LA
And I stopped to take a nap in Flagstaff
But I've still got to drive all day
And when the sun sets out
On the desert you never seen such a beautiful sight
But at two AM in the desert man
You never seen a blacker night


I made it into LA
Just about the time I swore I had to get off the road
And I checked in to a motor inn
I turned the air condition way down cold
I slept all day then I woke up around about ten PM
I grabbed a bite to eat at a little cafe
Then I hit the road again
