Song Description

The singer and a friend/lover are on a cross country trek to reach the Idlewild River.

Story Behind the Song

At the tail end of a trip to California, I was driving down this ridiculously winding road to the San Jose airport at 4 in the morning. Trying desperately to stay awake, I though that writing a song might keep my brain engaged enough to fight off the fatigue. I remember thinking, "I'm going to write a song about the next thing I see!" And there it was... a sign for the "Idlewild River." I love the juxtaposition of the idle and wild in the word and thought it would be a cool song title. I honestly don't remember how I launched into the song after seeing the sign, but I made it to the airport alive!

Lyrics

15 hours down on the interstate.....Lifetime supply of caffeine in my veins
Trying all night to catch that horizon....Sun's coming up & mercury is rising

We ain't stopping' till we reach the Idlewild River

Blast my favorite song on the radio....Big black dog hanging out the window
Diesel engine hummin' in the pick up truck...Bury that needle, baby, lets burn it up

We ain't stopping' till we reach the Idlewild River
Cool blue water calling out the saint in every sinner

Had enough of the city life...So we packed our bags & waved goodbye
Wanna a breath of that pure country air
On backs on a white sand beach...Smooth wet rocks on our barefeet
Put the pedal down & take me there


Map here says 110 more miles....take the wheel now, let me rest my eyes
And if I'm lucky when I awake We'll be staring out at the river bank
