Picking up the pieces of my sweet shattered dream
I wonder how the old folks are tonight
Her name was Ann and I'll be damned if I recall her face
She left me not knowing what to do

Carefree highway, let me slip away on you
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you

Turning back the pages to the times I love best
I wonder if she'll ever do the same
Now the thing that I call living is just being satisfied
With knowing I got no one left to blame

Carefree highway, I got to see you my old flame
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you

Searching through the fragments of my dream shattered sleep
I wonder if the years have closed her mind
I guess it must be wanderlust or trying to get free
From the good old faithful feeling we once knew

Carefree highway, let me slip away on you
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you
Let me slip away on you
Carefree highway, I got to see you my old flame
Carefree highway, you seen better days
The morning after blues from my head down to my shoes
Carefree highway, let me slip away, slip away on you

Actually, her name was

Carol / Jill / Bonnie / Vivian / Sherrie / Shelly / Susan / Donna / Brenda and on and on and on. Three-chord Gord could always be counted on to put out a good tune.

Oh Coaster...

I'm starting to worry about our friend Rajah. He's serenading me with three-chord Gord songs about lonesome highways. Perhaps you could let him ride bitch on your trip north in the fall.

Riding Fool, you sound more like Willy Nelson

Have you grown pigtails since I saw you last?

Oh, don't be worried

I think it was nice that he selected a decent Canadian artist, and we all know how difficult those are to find.

But everyone knew her as "Nancy."

One actually does come to mind, and she AIN'T it.  She finally killed off her so-called audience here.

Impeach Jim Gibbons!

I tried to post a video of Anne Murray singing Snowbird

But it was queue by our moderater. So even Anne Murray is too much for Crankyland now? These are strange days indeed!

Ha Ha! Rajah got queued!

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
bout a ghost from a wishin well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as Im a ghost that you cant see
If I could read your mind love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me
But heroes often fail
And you wont read that book again
Because the endings just too hard to take

Id walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene
Of bringing all the good things out in me
But for now love, lets be real
* I never thought I could act this way *
And Ive got to say that I just dont get it
I dont know where we went wrong
But the feelins gone
And I just cant get it back

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
bout a ghost from a wishin well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
But stories always end
And if you read between the lines
Youll know that Im just tryin to understand
The feelins that you lack
I never thought I could feel this way
And Ive got to say that I just to get it
I dont know where we went wrong
But the feelins gone
And I just cant get it back

 

Is this more of that heartland crap

First of all, the guy's name must always be Jonny.

Jonny had a guitar, and he played it 'til his fingers bled

Jonny had a girl, he can't remeber her name but he'd recognise her anywhere if he saw her,

Jonny's girl was a burnette, and she hurt him so, in the back of his mind he'll always have a place for her, somewhere...

Jonny wears a leather jacket

Jonny drives a harley

Jonny likes whiskey because it tastes just like the cup of coffee he ashed his ciggarettes in and accidentally drank that one time.

Jonny's an American

Jonny takes care of his guitar like it's a woman, he would never smash it on stage, he even sleeps with it.

Jonny loves the open road, the wind in his hair, the bugs in his teeth.

Jonny never could hold down a job for a long period of time.

Jonny us'ta have a band, but they broke up long ago.

Jonny doesn't have friends, only aquaintances

Jonny smokes his own hand rolled ciggarettes

Jonny first met his girl in a bar, she played him in a game of pool and beat the assless chaps off of jonny.  She then went shot for shot with Jonny on a bottle of JD.  Then they got married.

Jonny died with a bottle of whiskey somethin' somethin' somthin'...

 

 

Assless chaps

RidingFool's picture

aren't nearly as cool as going without pants.

Prince thinks otherwise

TMundo's picture

Have you listened to the Johny Cash cover?

Critico's picture

"But heroes often fail"

FearlessFreep's picture

I like that line.  Just because.

 

Dan, apparently some Youtube links automatically get queue

Or it could be because I'm black

I'm thinking the latter
