TIMEOUT

They sold the farm back in fifty-five
Now was the time to take that drive

A vacation for folks who never had one
After too much work and too little fun

From the Ozark Mountains they headed west
To see the sights and get some rest

No Greyhound bus or big jet plane
Not even a Santa Fee passenger train

They chose to see the USA
Through the windshield of a Chevrolet

A pickup truck they bought with cash
Would take them on their Western dash

Roadside cabins would be their home
The Arizona highways they would roam

To a place where nature puts on a show
To the valley and the land of the Navajo

Where sunsets are painted in every hue
And the heavens are a deeper shade of blue

Where Mustangs roam the landscape so vast
And petroglyphs reveal our ancient passed

What better place to reflect on their life
Through times of joy and times of strife

For a couple of fighters who survived their bout
A life well lived includes timeout
