Follow That Road

If you’re coming in the summer you’d be better to split off on 35,
There’s The Starlite Drive-in Movie on the left just beyond the county line,
Right after that you’ll see two silos, one is silver, one is blue
‘Bout a quarter mile further make a left onto Highway 42…

Then follow that road
Cornfields just as far as you can see
Follow that road
Back through time, back through distance, back to me.

If you’re drivin’ by in autumn you should follow up the river to Bear Lake
That’s the time to see the colors, there’s an old covered bridge you’ll want to take
Late at night be careful, just be sure to look for deer out on the road
And if it’s early in the morning, sometimes it gets foggy, take it slow…

But follow that road
Sugar maples far as you can see
Follow that road
Back through time, back through distance, back to me.

If you get the notion in December to stop by for just a day
There’s that tiny little road that no one knows about, it’s safe to go that way
It’s up between two fields so the sunlight melts the ice by afternoon
You’ll see two houses by the fields, someone’s always there if not they’ll be back soon…

So follow that road
Snowdrifts just as far as you can see
Follow that road
Back through, time back through distance back to me

You’ll remember in the springtime how the puddles look like pieces of the sky
Fallen down by the roadside to delight any stranger passing by
The softness of the grass on Raven Hill where we counted stars at night
You must know how much I miss you and that any way you get here is alright

So follow that road
Wildflowers just as far as you can see
Follow that road
Back through time, back through distance, back to me
