The Road and the Radio

I have always enjoyed long stretches of time on the road alone. Next to cutting the grass with my iPod on (seriously) there is no greater time of inspiration and thought for me. I had to laugh as I was be-bopping (technical term) through the mountains of West Virginia earlier this week.

I was puttin’ on a Karaoke concert (I do a mean Kenny Chesney) and this song came through the speakers. I think I wore out the CD player in my car replaying it. Quite honestly the lyrics were a bit too close to home for me. It’s amazing where we can find inspiration. Even from the road and the radio.

“The Road And The Radio” by Kenny Chesney

Ain’t nothing out here but me, the road and the radio
Looking for an exit and a song that I might know
Counting down the memories and adding up the miles
Searching for a feeling I ain’t felt in a while

Clarity and inspiration
Happiness is a destination that’s hard to find
It may take some time
But in my mind there’s something more
And I’ll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind
And I’ll get there leanin’ on some friends I know:
The road and the radio

Spent the night in Carolina, got up early out of bed
Bought a Red Bull and a road map and a old Stones cassette
Setting my sights south bound, no reason or rhyme
Threw up a prayer just lookin’, just lookin’ for a sign

And some clarity and inspiration
Happiness is a destination that’s hard to find
It may take some time
But in my mind there’s something more
And I’ll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind
And I’ll get there leanin’ on some friends I know:
The road and the radio

In my mind there’s something more
And I’ll open up a brand new door
And find the strength to close the ones I left behind

And I’ll get there leanin’ on some friends I know:
The road and the radio

    Everytime I mow the grass I listen to music. I love to do that cause like you said it is a good time to think and relax.

    I can definitely relate to this post. Most of my memories, can be brought to life just by hearing an old song.
