CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD
Lucinda Williams


Sittin' in the kitchen, a house in Macon

Loretta's singing on the radio

Smell of coffee eggs and bacon

Car wheels on a gravel road


Pull the curtains back and look outside

Somebody somehere I don't know

Come on now child we're gonna go for a ride

Car wheels on a gravel road


Car wheels on a gravel road

Car wheels on a gravel road


Can't find a damn thing in this place

Nothing's where I left it before

Set of keys and a dusty suitcase

Car wheels on a gravel road


There goes the screen door slamming shut

You better do what you're told

When I get back this room better be picked-up

Car wheels on a gravel road


Car wheels on a gravel road

Car wheels on a gravel road


Low hum of voices in the front seat

Stories nobody knows

Got folks in Jackson we're going to meet

Car wheels on a gravel road


Cotton fields stretching miles and miles

Hank's voice on the radio

Telephone poles trees and wires fly on by

Car wheels on a gravel road


Car wheels on a gravel road

Car wheels on a gravel road


Broken down shacks engine parts

Could tell a lie but my heart would know

Listen to the dogs barkin' in the yard

Car wheels on a gravel road

Child in the backseat 'bout four or five years

Lookin' out the window

Little bit of dirt mixed with tears

Car wheels on a gravel road


Car wheels on a gravel road

Car wheels on a gravel road

Car wheels on a gravel road

Car wheels on a gravel road
