Horns arranged by Paliga



Drivin’ on Highway 40, on old Route 66
Destiny searching, just hit or miss
And my friend Nat King Cole had it right
He said, “just get your kicks”
While we drove, through the night

Friends of mine, by my side
And I see the Rio San Juan

Foothills shine in the desert night
And a million stars, always a awesome, pleasant sight
And the mesa I see (And I think)
Hippie’s delight
Over there, Monument Valley; Beauty all around, always astounds

In a little hurry, but now she’s gone from my sight
…I see her, the Rio San Juan


from Dawson's New Rage, track released July 4, 2004
