lyrics

Well, the highways
And the byways
Cutting through our town
Then before too long
The road becomes a home
And our children are stolen away

Well the chain gangs
And the choo-choo trains
Drove the farmers out of town
And now all the boys are gone
The road stole our sons
Stealing the songs our fathers loved

Now I'm not the kind of guy
Who has to have a cry every time he skins his knee
But the road it came to town and it turned my life around
And now, now I all I ever see--

Is those highways
And those byways
That rotten, bloated street
People ask "What's wrong?"
I say, "The future came and gone,
and you know something, man, I think we were beat."

Zeke Virant Belgium

Hi. I'm from Georgia, and I'm living in Belgium. I try to write stylistically diverse music, including pop songs, orchestral suites, chamber music, electro dance--you know, it's that scrappy, "I'll write whatever-I-can-think of" sort of affair.
