playSide to Side

from Sessions (2003) BUY

grew up in the back woods of a small town -- my home town  
sneak out through the back yard, where the boys would be waiting around  
and weíd go creeping and the night was our time  
oh i remember the way that the moon would shine

and all of the mischief done and the lessons learned  
the times i kicked on through and the times i was burned  
and itís not so far that i canít see  
theyíre still a part of me


it's the highest high  
itís the paths we fly  
itís an unpaved road, itís a rocky ride  
and all i can do is shake my head from side to side

she must have been four years older, i was so young -- just fourteen  
i saw her staring at me, it was a look i hadnít ever seen  
she said be ever so slow as she came around  
oh i remember the way that she lay me down

and all of the wonder and the mystery  
as i glimpsed the man that i would learn to be  
and sheís not so far that i canít find  
her with me all the time


and iím still keeping time  
to the things iíve left behind

i fill up the tank as i head west out of town  
i turn the radio up to my favorite sound  
a guitar strumming with the sound of the wheels on highway 9  
and i wonder -- will i remember this day for the rest of time?
