Song Description

A song about trying to find what was home after you've been many, many miles.

Story Behind the Song

Came up with this in 2010, with the melody first, which suggested the contemplations of having travelled many miles.

I've been sailing too close to the wind.
Hardly know what I'm after,
or noticed where I've been.
Neither time nor temperature can explain this shape I'm in.
But I trod these blues in my highway shoes.
My highway shoes.

I've been thinking of heading on back home.
But all it does is rain there most every time I've gone,
and that Neches still runs muddy,
just like she's always flowed.

I've been dreaming of a place from long ago.
Once etched so clearly, since melted with the snow.
I can't find reminders no matter where I've gone,
but I just can't retire my old highway shoes.
These old highway shoes.

Now I've been trying to keep carrying on.
To find what I'm after before I've nowhere else to roam
that time and temperature can leave all alone.
But I just can't untie my old highway shoes.
These old highway shoes,
dusty highway shoes
