The Destination

Hit the road when I was a young man
Not much different from what my Daddy done
Never cared much for throwing out an anchor
it’s the way I am it’s in my blood


It’s not the time it takes It’s all about the journey
The destination don’t matter much

Daddy said You’ll know when you get there
The road will tell you when you’re done
It’s easier to get where you’re going
If you know where you come from

he said if you change your mind just change your scenery
Don’t get stuck in a 9 to 5
Keep the wind at your back and the rubber on the pavement
Stare down the devil and you’ll know you’re alive

It’s not the time it takes It’s all about the journey
The destination don’t matter much

Daddy said You’ll know when you get there
The road will tell you when you’re done
It’s easier to get where you’re going
If you know where you come from

Hi Tom,

Anytime I see your name on a new post, I get pretty anxious - anticipation of some great music. You never disappoint. I've always traveled, nearly non-stop (over 40 countries and all but 2 states - Oregon and Hawaii). But with Di's health so fragile, I haven't in a couple of years.

That chorus just speaks to me. My favorite place, other than with my wife, is what lies down the road I've never traveled. As always, your vocal shines and your Tele talks. It seems every time I listen to one of your new posts, I say "Man, that might be my all-time favorite from you." So, here I go again: This might be my all-time favorite from you.

Best to you.

Alan

Great to hear a new one from you and an excellent one at that.
Really nice set of lyrics and some wonderful melodic guitar phrases between verses.
Always love your laid back vocal sound and harmonies and the band sounds superb.

Peter

Hi Tom,

I can relate to the message, somewhat anyway. My favorite type of getaway is doing road trips, a planned destination but anything in between is fair game. Been right across Canada from coast to coast that way, and also spent a month driving down and exploring Texas with stops at many cool places along the way. And many other shorter trips over the years. Driving down route 66 is on my bucket list, maybe next year.

Anyway, nice to hear you with a new one! Your music always sounds radio ready to me, such a pro sound.

Cool tune Tommy. My dad was a trucker so spent allot of summer breaks from school cruising coast to coast. Funny used to love to travel when younger but so much chaos in the airports and congested city driving much prefer to stay home.

Loved the lyric and super vocal as always. And always my favorite part of the songs the guitar was just excellent...

Great song and excellent mix with plenty of variety and highs and lows. Really liked the arrangement and all the links and changes of feel in the drums. Great vocal too.

Superb work Tom. That has got to be one of the best Telecaster tones I have ever heard! Great lyrics sung to perfection, all in a top notch RTs setting. Mix and engineering A1. An object lesson to us all!

Best

Nice work.

I used to really like grabbing the steering wheel and heading out to parts unknown to set up and play music for folks. Now days I have found my destination and really like walking through my woods.

On the song. Good writing. That guitar tone is "to die for" as my girls used to say. Nice crunch but in a smooth sort of way. Both the rhythm and the lead tomes are so nice. Yep... another goodun!

And of course, every time I visit your site.... I have to listen to my favorite of yours..... The Waterline. Man that one gives me chills.

Alan, I also am missing Oregon and Hawaii along with 5 more. I think you’ve got me beat on countries but I’m closing in on you. Thanks for the great comments, Tom

"It’s easier to get where you’re going
If you know where you come from"

What a nice line. A good write. A good Road Song.

Your signature lick is the perfect earworm.

Everything sounds good (As it always does in your songs).
The drums and the acoustic are attention grabbers...
A great mix - crisp, clean, cohesive.

A great listen. (Of course!)

Tom,
The intro grabs and already I know this is a good "band" song(no one does the big drums better)
Love the sentiments in the lyrics, strong vocals...and that great Telecaster sound.
Makes me want to get out and drive South!

Man, is this ever the way to take a BiaB band and make it yours. With the drum loops and your guitar licks this song just screams individuality.

"It’s easier to get where you’re going if you know where you come from" is sung with both certainty and confidence.

And what makes this song even more special is that we have had the pleasure of sitting around the campfire and hearing about some of those place you've been smile

A fine "I wanna hit the road" write, a strong vocal, cool guitar and a top notch tommyad mix all demand a wide audience.

We like the allusions to Hiatt...Drive South!

Kudos!

J&B
