Broadjam Member Reviews

Beautiful...I was pulled in immediately, and the tune flowed effortlessly throughout...I wasn't ready for it to end. Just a wonderful, entrancing song.

    - Coyote Collective

Nice jazz chords. Beautiful melody with a smooth vocal delivery. Great arrangement & recording. Good song structure. Carefully crafted lyrics with nice imagery and rhyme scheme. Great song! Well done. This reminds me of America.

    - Brian McNulty
Lyrics

So I'm walking down this highway, with my thumb out in the air
Got a pocket full of expectation, red dirt in my hair
I'm looking for the smoke on the horizon, I know it's there

I know some people say you can't go back, they might be right
But I'm thinking about the stories that my granddad told at night
Passed down through generations, got to keep the past in sight

And he would tell all us kids about a place
And we would stare right back into his weathered face
And we'd believe everything

He'd talk about trees, impossibly tall
He'd show us how birds would sing and call
He'd tell us how the soldiers took it all
That's how it would always end

So I get a ride from nowhere, to some other nowhere town
And I'm wondering why people chose right here to settle down
No clues on passing strangers, no smiles, no frowns

So I order up a coffee, and what passes for a pie
And hanging on the wall old faded photos Catch my eye
A bunch of young gold miners, from happy time gone by

Those pictures would tell all of us about a place
I sat and stared right back into their hopeful faces
And that explained everything

He'd talk about trees, impossibly tall
He'd show us how birds would sing and call
He'd tell us how the soldiers took it all
That's how it would always end

So I'm back out on the highway, with my thumb out in the air
Thinking about those miners and the life they had back there
And I'm sure I heard that old mans voice on the air

And he would tell all us kids about a place
And we would stare right back into his weathered face
And we'd believe everything

He'd talk about trees, impossibly tall
He'd show us how birds would sing and call
He'd tell us how the soldiers took it all
That's how it would always end
