A GIRL, A SONG, AND A PICKUP TRUCK a drive by poem by Flyrod

It was a hot summer night on the Oklahoma plain
In the distance you could hear a rolling freight train

A big harvest moon in the East did rise
I parked my truck and heard a Coyote’s cries

Windmills turning from the cool night breeze
Wheat fields dotted with little white daisies

Walking down a path with my girlfriend Sue
Our feet getting wet from the soft summer dew

We laughed at everything and talked non-stop
There seamed to be no end to the tails we would swap

We were just nineteen and we were happy all the time
And the best part of all is that it didn’t cost a dime

We strolled back to the pickup and as I closed the door
The skies opened up and the rain began to pour

I tuned in the radio to a Chicago station
It was WLS beaming all across the nation

The Five Satins sang, In the Still of the Night
A moment in time when all was so right

I had it all, it was more than just luck
A girl, a song, and a pickup truck
