The Road and the Radio

I’m hunkered down this weekend, plowing through hundreds of tapes, although I am taking the occasional break to get out and enjoy the glorious weather. And luckily, I can listen to music most of the time I’m working.

Today it’s Kenny Chesney. And this song always strikes a chord with me. Guess why? 🙂

(I can’t embed it, but you can listen to it here.)

The Road and the Radio

Ain’t nothing out here but me, the road and the radio
Looking for an exit and a song that I might know
Counting down the memories and adding up the miles
Searching for a feeling I ain’t felt in a while

Clarity and inspiration
Happiness is a destination that’s hard to find
It may take some time
But in my mind there’s something more
And I’ll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind
And I’ll get there leanin’ on some friends I know:
The road and the radio

Spent the night in Carolina, got up early out of bed
Bought a Red Bull and a road map and a old Stones cassette
Setting my sights southbound, no reason or rhyme
Threw up a prayer just lookin’, just lookin’ for a sign

And some clarity and inspiration
Happiness is a destination that’s hard to find
It may take some time
But in my mind there’s something more
And I’ll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind
And I’ll get there leanin’ on some friends I know:
The road and the radio.
