(America The Beautiful)Song #331 | 5/19/2003 | Recorded Winter 2022 | Tuning: EABEBEThere’s a summer storm from the West
Bringing rain and a cooling breeze
In the Eastern sky, There’s a rising moon
Aching for release
There’s an interstate that knows both our names
Can you hear it calling us?
So I dare you to come with me…
Let’s leave the East coast in the dust
And the spacious skies above the plain
And the waves of amber grain
“America, The Beautiful” how does a kid restrain
This urgency to see it all from Sea to shining sea!
So you got to let me know if you’re coming with me…
They don’t have to know that we have gone
Until we are too far away
This is the summer of our freedom
So what do you say?
Can you see us crossing the Golden Gate
3,000 miles away from Maine
So let’s turn the key. Engage the gears.
We will not be restrained
Can you taste the rain steam off the road
After the the thunder squall
And in a week or maybe two
the road will start to fall
Towards the coast highway where we’ll find a phone
And make a collect call
Just to let them know that we are safe
And we will be back in the Fall…
America the Beautiful
There’s a summer storm and a cooling breeze…
