I am on the road most of the time... this song cam out of me when I had been in one place for a while - which always makes me antsy. I used stories I had heard from my fellow highway hippies and mixed in some of my own. This song came from a place of pure fun!

lyrics

This is a happy day
Because I am on my way
Might as well make it a holiday
And when I get there we’ll celebrate

Making like a hobo
Rocking it solo aint so bad
And there’s nothing holding me back

Don’t need no stinking map
I got a GPS that’ll find the way
There’s no turning back
I gotta watch the road if I wants a snack
Who put it in the way back

Highway hippies of the 21st century
Don’t try to understand it just revel in the mystery
Chasing our dreams in our dirty jeans
And relying on a system of elaborate freeways

Which exit should I take
That red tail will lead the way
I wanna find some tumbleweeds
I’m scattering my pot seeds
For the next guy
Who knows what’ll grow if you give it a try

And when I stop for fuel
I try to go to truck stops as a rule
I’m buying lots o nuts
There’s nothing else to eat if you’re vegan
At the gas station

Chorus

I like the window down
Now my left arm is a golden brown
I really just an earth child
I wanna go a little wild
But I need my car
Or I can’t get very far

Chorus
