American Dream

Humming-CD-cover-600Words and music by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers When you're out on the road Driving alone With the rising moon A sliver of bone The desert hills fade to black And you're not sure If you'll go back at all To what you knew Whatever lies ahead Whatever falls behind Whatever matters here Is on the line In this American dream When you're out on the road Leaving no trace Just a motel key A smile with no face At every town you read the sign But nothing pulls you From that line It's all you know Chorus Listen: the roar of the windows And scanning for stations The radio preaches approaching salvation The all-night café with the coffee eternal The trucks breathe like dragons Their eyes fired with diesel When you're out on the road Driving alone With the rising moon A sliver of bone You never give, you only take And I'm not sure You'll ever wake at all From this American dream
