Then I have to stop to have some coffee
As the truckers roll on by
On the open road I see fancy homes
Airlines in the sky.
You can see it in America
With its freedom near and far.
We’ve got Disneyland, and one night stands,
And photographs of Mars.
As I turn into the mid-west
I can see her golden plains
Where all the pioneers in the early years
Saw the Red Man make his change.
Then I pull into Ohio,
The place where I was born.
But I turn my head, `cause the lake is dead
And my dreams have all been torn.
As I pull into the East Coast
There’s a statue standing tall.
But a rising tide, on the New York side
Says she’s bound to take a fall.
But the fall may be a soft one
That her money just can’t buy.
I see rushing crowds, buildings in the clouds,
And a lack of human pride.
