lyrics

“Dark of the Center Line”

I was driving through Kentucky
On that old, familiar line
That marries Tennessee to Illinois
Like they was ribs on a concrete spine.

I was mirrored in the windows,
So I was smeared on every tree.
And across the sky and every billboard sign
There was a faint, blurry picture of me.

Can you tell me, and even tell a lie?
It ain’t written in no book that I can find.
Can you tell me, and can you tell me true?
Does the dark of the center-line lead somewhere too?

I headed west to see the mountains,
To feel the desert baking dry,
All the way to the Pacific coast
To see the sun set on the other side.

When I was staring into a canyon,
The desert sands, or out to sea,
All I could see was something wasn’t there,
Like something missing inside of me.

Can you tell me, and even tell a lie?
It ain’t written in no book that I can find.
Can you tell me, and can you tell me true?
Does the dark of the center-line lead somewhere?

Can you tell me, and even tell a lie?
It ain’t written in no book that I can find.
Can you tell me, and can you tell me true?
Does the dark of the center-line lead somewhere too?
