The Road And The Radio

One of the first times I actually heard, and listened to it thoroughly, was when I was walking the treadmill at the BSU gym one morning. I heard this song and it reminded me of back home.



The Road And The Radio
(Casey Beathard/Kenny Chesney)

Ain't nothing out here but me, the road and the radio,
Looking for an exit and a song that I might know.
An' countin' down the memories an' addin' up the miles,
Searchin' for a feelin' I ain't felt in a while.

Clarity an' inspiration:
Happiness is a destination that's hard to find.
It may take some time.
But in my mind there's somethin' more
An' I'll open up a brand new door,
An' find the strength to close the ones I left behind.
An' I'll get there leanin' on some friends I know:
The road and the radio.

Spent the night in Carolina; got up early out of bed,
Bought a Red Bull and a road map and a old Stones cassette.
Settin' my sights south bound, no reason or rhyme;
Threw up a prayer just lookin', just lookin' for a sign.

And some clarity an' inspiration:
Happiness is a destination that's hard to find.
It may take some time.
But in my mind there's somethin' more
An' I'll open up a brand new door,
An' find the strength to close the ones I've left behind.
An' I'll get there leanin' on some friends I know:
The road and the radio.

But in my mind there's somethin' more
An' I'll open up a brand new door,
An' find the strength to close the ones I've left behind.
An' I'll get there leanin' on some friends I know:
The road and the radio.

Hi Ash, That song does make me think of home. I don't listen to country music often so I've never heard it. The lyrics are good! Have a great day! -Melissa
