Green fields, purple hills.
White specks of sheep in the distance.
I am on the road , the favorite girls
on my mind. Shades on the mountains.

Looking forward to have them with me,
once more I skip through my radio.
They play the Mesh Potato
I see black mountains coming up.

For a hundred miles, no way to turn.
Cars pass me by
in this nothingness.
Drifting thoughts, on this
long winded road.
Let's go nowhere.
Let's go nowhere.

I pass the creek, we waded into deep.
And the house, we dreamed of living in -
Lays in ruins - by the side of the way,
too cold, too cold
too cold to stay.

Where no maps guide the road
Towns like names of whisky.
I stop in the passing places and don't get far.
Not very far, not far enough.
Not far from here.
