Dust bowl melody ringing in my ears / Terraplane angel take away my fear / The sky is open and the blacktop sings / Like a fence post hawk on borrowed wings / I'm on Cassady's highway of lead and chrome / Put the ragtop down, listen to the wind blow / A thousand miles with nothing to prove / The world keeps turning; I don't even move / I'm driving in a terraplane / Stars fall like summer rain / Open up my eyes and dream / The world lights up in my high beams
