Son Volt – Highways And Cigarettes lyrics

Got caught up in a breakaway dream, destination city of New Orleans
Cheap motels and big-rig swells, crossin' bridges for eternity
Headed west for a two-week stand, saw the poets of workaday glasses
Las Cruces is a part of you now, desert birds sing songs of laughter
Still out there with the coffee stains and puttin' miles on shoes
Can't escape the smell of cigarettes, still livin' out these American late-night blues

Best to clear the mind with a Mexicali radio station
Keep an eye out for the Border Patrol
Checking for drugs and so-called aliens
Highways and dreams forever together
In the minds of the free and the innocent
Always a future in the travelers hands
Startin' fires on the river of madness

Still out there with the coffee stains and puttin' miles on shoes
Can't escape the smell of cigarettes, still livin' out these American late-night blues
