Jackson BrowneThe Road

Highways and dance halls A good song takes you far Your write about the moon And you dream about the stars Blues in old motel rooms Girls in daddy's car You sing about the nights And you laugh about the scars Coffee in the morning cocaine afternoons You talk about the weather And you grin about the rooms Phone calls long distance To tell how you've been Forget about the losses, you exaggerate the wins And when you stop to let em know You've got it down Its just another town along the road The ladies come to see you If your name still rings a bell They give you damn near nothin And they'll say they knew you well So you tell em you'll remember But they know its just a game And along the way their faces All begin to look the same And when you stop to let em know You got it down Its just another town along the road Well it isn't for the money And its only for a while You stalk about the rooms And you roll away the miles Gamblers in the neon, clinging to guitars You're right about the moon But you're wrong about the stars And when you stop to let em know You got it down Its just another town along the way
