    Ok, last one for now. Wrote it in 2004.

    Mercy On Me ( or..Interstate Take Me ?)

    Well I just filled up
    With 93 octane gasoline
    And I’m a rollin up a ramp
    To a road to where I never been
    I’m gonna see this country of mine
    Gonna cross every damned state line
    And with a little luck
    Smokey Bear gonna leave me alone

    Chorus

    Interstate take me far away
    No matter where I wind up
    It’ll be ok
    All those American girls to see
    Oh lord have some mercy
    Mercy on me

    Well I think I might as well
    Head on down towards Tenessee
    I hear the Guitars’ really rockin
    Most every Saturdee
    Think I’ll just hit every bar in town
    Might even buy every body a round
    And with a little luck
    A country girl might take a liken to me

    Interstate take me far away
    No matter where I wind up
    It’ll be ok
    All those American girls to see
    Oh lord have some mercy
    Mercy on me

    Well Georgia was cool
    And them Bama belles looked so fine
    But the girls down there on the Keys
    Were the ones that really blew my mind
    Finely tanned beauty queens
    Blond hair blowin in the breeze
    And with a little luck
    One might like a pale but handsome man

    Interstate take me far away
    No matter where I wind up
    It’ll be ok
    All those American girls to see
    Oh lord have some mercy
    Mercy on me

    Well I better let ya’ll go
    Keep my hands good and tight on the wheel
    I still gotta long ways to go
    So many places I still aint seen
    I never knew this land of the free
    Had so many girls to see
    And with a little luck
    I’ll find one tired of bein alone

    Interstate take me far away
    No matter where I wind up
    It’ll be ok
    All those American girls to see
    Oh lord have some mercy
    Mercy on me
