Written and recorded May 20, 2012, for a compilation of musical responses to be released with T Cooper's upcoming book "Real Man Adventures," published by McSweeney's Books.

lyrics

He woke near Boulder, Interstate soldier, by the dawn’s early headlights through the drawn curtains, screwed up his purpose, said I won’t be alone tonight. On my last dollar, the path I follow will get me satisfied. Forget the motto, Colorado is as flat as the scraps of tire in the shoulder of roads to nowhere, the Kansas borderline. Purgatory till Missouri, when he can seek and surely find.

Now interviewing whoever’s shooting the warm Midwestern breeze. The special guest star of the rest stop will be the next fair face I see.

In a red dress, former Miss Festus has fallen on tougher times. He said he knew it, south of St. Louis, just on the other side of Crystal City, which sounds so pretty, but has long since lost its shine. Leaned in to her ear, How much you need, dear? She said I could ask you the same. Let’s be honest, our needs aren’t modest, and we both could never pay. Climb to the back of this old cab and let’s see if we’re as free as they say.

Now interviewing whoever’s shooting the warm Midwestern breeze. The special guest star of the rest stop will be the next fair face I see.

He hovers over her body lower and lower, and she sees, as he draws closer, the lonely ghosts of her hometown’s evening breeze were the caresses and the hot breath she felt upon her flushing cheeks. Their gazes meeting, hearts’ rapid beating, sweet synchronicity. The roads are bone, and below the stone flows the blood of gasoline. He rolled beside her, and they would lie there all night and listen to the highway breathe.

Now interviewing whoever’s shooting the warm Midwestern breeze. The special guest star of the rest stop will be the next fair face I see.
