about

A groovy little resonator jam about trying to outrun a broken heart.

lyrics

A Thousand Miles Of Blacktop

A thousand miles of blacktop
Rusted metal and burning fields
Before I could turn my heart to letting go
If you kick at the stones in your passway
Don't bend down and pick them up
You won't get to heaven with the weight of the world
In your pocket

(chorus)
I ran a thousand miles of blacktop
Trying to outrun a heart in love
Cry yourself to sleep if you think it helps
In the night when you get lonely child
You can call on a man like me
I'll be down on my luck at the bar

(solo)

(chorus)

Don't you kick at the stones

Carry your burden lightly child
You've got a long way to go
Don't trip over the stones in your passway
And if your heart should get broken child
Fall down on your knees
A thousand miles of blacktop won't stop the bleed

(chorus)
