Joe Gardner

1972 C10


Looking at a picture of you

Tomorrow so far away

Long memories lead my mind astray

Plans of a future together on the road

Chasing the wind

The radio singing those old travelling songs

Solid 70s gold

Keeping tune with the singing of the tires

Eating the miles up one after another

Right arm across the bench seat

Around my girl

Left arm crooked out the window

Holding the wheel

A cigarette smoldering in my lip

Speedometer holding a steady seventy

On the 91 highway on a Saturday

Heading back to the beach

Following the route

My father used to commute

To pull oil from the wells

Down in Signal Hill

And Venice Beach

Back when this old pick up

Rolled off the assembly line new
