Song Description

a song of sad protest to man's inhumanity to animals and man.

Story Behind the Song

"Changing lyrical tack, featuring dobro and pedal steel, 'Fox On The Highway' is a slow, organ-backed, intimately sung blues tinged folk lament about man's inhumanity to animals ("elephant tusk on display/my heart beats fast, my mind races/I burn to the core in my shame") and, by extension to the human race itself ("synagogue holy place/in church and mosque we are safe/my heart beats fast my mind races/what you blew away with your hate") where owls are admired not for their beauty but how "they silently glide for their prey". - Mike Davies, folking.com, UK

Lyrics

fox on the highway - beth wimmer 2020

verse
when i see a fox on the highway
my heart beats fast my mind races
i want to stop the car and help him to safety
run away from this this race

verse
elephant tusk on display
my heart beats fast, my mind races
i burn to the core in my shame
run away from this race

instrumental/solo...

bridge -
one time was easy sharing faith and trust
i'm scared these ways are just hopeless

verse
synagogue holy place
in church and mosque we are safe
my heart beats fast my mind races
what you blew away with your hate

verse
"who doesn't love owls, beth?", he said
"my heart beats fast, my mind races
when they silently glide for their prey"
then he flew away from this race
he flew away...

ending
when i see a fox on the highway
when i see a fox on the highway
my heart beats fast, my mind races
