lyrics

The road is small and foggy when I'm back in town
There are places where the moon shines bright with no clouds
A little town in a depression, though we all feel well
I myself am almost home, and I'm glad as hell.

I been driving all night, still flying from an old-time southern jam
Moon in apogee is pulling me West, to my own land

The town is low but the moon is high and she's lowering her half-eye to me
It's four o'clock in the morning when I pull into the driveway
Before I hit the door I'm smelling that honeysuckle vine
This old house is all run down, but it's mine

I been driving all night, still flying from an old-time southern jam
Moon in apogee is pulling me West, to my own land

Doors and windows open wide, like cracking a sardine can
Drop it all in my easy chair, remember where I am
The time was a good one, the dust was high, now I'm clean and clear
Bills can wait, they're a little late, ringing's still leaving my ears

I been driving all night, still flying from an all-night southern jam
Moon in apogee she's pulling me West till my feet on my land.
Home and I know where I stand
I'm West till I make a new plan.
