This is the very first song I started writing.  I say, “started writing,” because I started and finished a whole bunch of songs in the four years it took me to write this epic.


Well I gotta wake up, gotta wake up, wake up, wake up.  Gotta wake up, gotta wake up, I’m going down the road.  Down, down to my sisters.  Leaving the mountains – the stretch is flat, the stretch is wide, I’ll keep my eye here as they whiz on by.  The sun’s in my eyes - I got the breeze on my cheek.  It’s Friday afternoon and I been looking forward to this all week.  I’m 80 miles away – I’m on the north east Georgia tip.  And if these crazy drivers would just slow down – it’d be a nice little road trip.
