Subject:  Song For the Night
Message:  I was born in a shotgun shack
that leaned against a railroad shack
I could hear the whistle blow
...all the way to Del Rio.

I was turnin' seventeen
when I packed up my hopes and dreams
Loaded my old beat up car..
Turned the key and burned the tar.

I burned that highway down in '59.
Yes, I burned that two way highway down
in 1959..
I never did look back, I didn't see that
railroad track..
But, I burned that highway down in '59.

Mickey Newbury
