We hitch a ride back to town
Someone finally gave us a chance -
There is no room up front
But the back of the truck doesn’t bother us.
We got lost in the mountains
I said we never needed a compass,
My words seemed so convincing.
The driver is old
He’s probably seen this all before -
We sit apart.
The old man’s dog likes you
I turn away and peer though the cabin window
& see the road stretch for miles.
You start singing
Go away rain
I tell you to leave it alone;
It’s good enough to
Wash a thousand minds ..
