Slice of Lime-Windows Are Rolled Down

It's been forever since I did a musical Slice of Lime. It's time. Amos Lee is one of my favorites and I quite enjoy his new CD Mission Bell. Driving to and from Maryland I had it cranked up while the windows were down.  Corn fields rushed by with feelings about the past year swirling in my head.  The sun set.  The moon rose. Life moved on while the road rolled along.

Look up child
The world is born
Shoe's untied
And your soles are worn

Windows are rolled down
Sun is setting high
Windows are rolled down
I'm fixin' to die

Corn rows have companion feel
This rocky road and this steering wheel
Who do you call to ease your pain
I hope for you to get through this rain

Windows are rolled down
Moon is hanging low
Windows are rolled down
Think it's time for me to go hey-ay-ay-a...-ay

Is it what you dreamed it'd be
Are you locked up in this fantasy
Oh this miles that have
torn us apart
My new found faith
and my broken heart

Windows are rolled down
Sun is rising high
Windows are rolled down
Feel that wind rushing by hey-ay-ay-a...

Windows are rolled down

Nice. . . Driving thru cornfields has a charm all its own, eh?

I'm with Cooper, tho, just a bit. Two hands on the wheel, and all your focus on the road, would help me feel ever-so-much mellower on your behalf. . . ;)

Not, you know, that I mean to be an obnoxious scold, or anything (a well-meaning scold, maybe. . .)

Love the tie-dye, tho. . . ;)

That's a great driving song! I never heard him before, but I like the cool, soulful expressions in his voice. Oh, and f.y.i., I'll be wearing my tie-dye tee shirt this weekend.

this is the kind of song that just merges right into you.

I actually like that feeling of driving along with a favorite CD cranked up.
