Take A Back Road


Sit in that six-lane backed up traffic
Horns are honking, I've about had it
I'm looking for an exit sign
Gotta get out of here, get it all off my mind


And like a memory from your grandpa's attic
A song comes slippin' through the radio static
Changing my mood
A little George Strait 1982


And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the long way home


Put a little gravel in my travel
Unwind, unravel all night long


Makes me wanna grab my honey
Tear down some two-lane country
Who knows
Get lost and get right with my soul


Makes me wanna take
Makes me wanna take a back road


I've been cooked up, fried down, 'bout forgotten
What a field looks like, full of corn and cotton
If I'm gonna hit a traffic jam
Well it better be a tractor man


So sick and tired of this interstate system
I need a curve and wide-a-twistin'


Dusty path to nowhere
With the wind blowin' through my baby's hair


And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the long way home


Put a little gravel in my travel
Unwind, unravel all night long


Makes me wanna grab my honey
Tear down some two-lane country
Who knows
Get lost and get right with my soul


Makes me wanna take
Makes me wanna take a back road



Take A Back Road lyrics by Rodney Atkins

Take some time out this weekend to explore your own back roads.

Cheers!

  2. Those lyrics were beautifully paired with your photos. For a few moments, I was transported out of 90 degree temps to a cooler countryside.
