I think it should be like a country/folk/roots rock sort of tune.


You hop into your ford truck
And start heading down the highway
There are no other cars driving
It’s just you and the open road
The 101’s never looked so fun
But you’re heading for route 66
Anything just to get your kicks

Cause you’ve been down on your luck
So you try to drive your troubles away

You realize you didn’t bring enough money
To feed you for more than a few days
So you’re out on a street corner singin the blues
And you’re hoping that it pays

Cause you’ve been down on your luck
So you try to drive your troubles away
You’re down on your luck
And you try to chase your blues away

You’ve been years on the road
Still it’s no place to call home
One of these days your gonna need to settle down

Cause you’ve been down on your luck
and you tried to drive your troubles away
You’re down on your luck
And you tried to chase your blues away

You’ve been down on your luck
And you want that to stop today
And the rain starts falling
On an early summer day

The open road isn’t home for long
So you’ve just got to live in the song
Until you finally settle down
and your lonely truck drives away
