about

The challenge was “Write a quintessential road trip song”. Well, that could mean just about anything. It’s entirely dependent on what the listener thinks is a classic road trip song This song is bluegrass. I think of it as the love child of Eddie Rabbitt's "Drivin' My Life Away" and "Man of Constant Sorrow". It’s simply a long-haul trucker on his way home.

lyrics

There's a grassy knoll I've been dreaming to
And a fountain not too far away
I dream I’m lyin’ there with you
Cause I'm leaving today
'm on my way.

There's a cool water summer on my mind
And a breeze blowing over the bay
I’ve always got you on my mind
Now I’m rollin’ your way
I'm on my way.

[Bridge]
There's a moon in the river staring at me
From the eye in the glare of a wave
And I don't even know where that river is going
And I don't really care anyway
I'm on my way.

There's a shady tree I've been thinking of
And a sunset to follow that day
I’ll always cherish you, my love
I'm heading your way
I'm on my way.

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Reprise Chorus]
On my way
And soon I'll be home to stay
Ain't gonna stray
Forever on my way.
