Music

By: Doug Midgley

Driving through the moonlit desert

I was howling with the radio

Wondering if the gas I've got...

Damn, how long is this road?

Dreaming 'bout that long white line

I didn't see that rusty nail

The hubcap danced in front of me

And the tire began to wail

The solid white line wasn't on my lift

Damn ditch was coming fast

Well it rolled, it stopped, it changed my plans

My body it the dash

The last few beats of some country song

Empty beer cans hitting the roof

Cold water from the cooler

The glass wasn't shatter proof

Was just a near miss 

Another rough kiss

A little bad luck

Another wrecked truck

A little mishap

Another cold slap

A little bit of luck

You see I get another chance

Was just a near miss 

Another rough kiss

A little bad luck

Another wrecked truck

A little mishap

Another cold slap

A little bit of luck

You see I get another chance

Well, I woke up surrounded by my new truck

It was a very bad day, but not my last

I was a little bumped, bloodied, bruised

But not too broken I hoped

As I climbed through the shards of glass

Even the cooler got wasted bouncing around the cab

My last cold one was warm by then

But it was the only one I had

You see I've tasted blood and beer before

But this time I was glad

Was just a near miss 

Another rough kiss

A little bad luck

Another wrecked truck

A little mishap

Another cold slap

A little bit of luck

You see I get another chance

Was just a near miss 

Another rough kiss

A little bad luck

Another wrecked truck

A little mishap

Another cold slap

A little bit of luck

You see I get another chance

Well, I tried to spit and couldn't 

I was as dry as the sand around me

I wished I hadn't killed that can so fast

And it was only 8:15

A lizard took my eyes 

To a piece of the sideview mirror

Two black eyes, a broken nose

Smiling back at me from ear to ear

So I went up to check out the skid marks

I was hoping that a car'd come by

But none did so I started walking down

That hot, long, lonely, white line

The blacktop was getting hotter than

The day was getting long

I dug deep to find another step

And kept humming that country song

Was just a near miss 

Another rough kiss

A little bad luck

Another wrecked truck

A little mishap

Another cold slap

A little bit of luck

You see I get another chance

Was just a near miss 

Another rough kiss

A little bad luck

Another wrecked truck

A little mishap

Another cold slap

A little bit of luck

I'm still here
