Just got back from 49 days deep in the North Carolina mountains with no cell service. I’m sure I missed a lot of great songs here. I plan on going back and listening to some of them. I won’t be commenting on the older songs so I don’t mess up the normal flow of the forum. I wrote this as I was driving. It started as a road song, then turned into a breakup song. I hope everyone is staying safe and well in these unusual and trying times.

Turn Around


Miles and miles of winding roads

reminding me what i should have known

it never felt right from the start

Tank’s as empty as my broken heart

Can’t recall the last car I passed

Headlights dimming nearly out of gas


It’s a long hard road to the next town

Ain’t no place to be broken down

I just reached up and tore off the rear view mirror

if i keep driving I might disappear

Radio’s dead don’t make a sound

I’m too far gone now to turnaround




Who’s to blame I’ll take my share

On a road that leads to who knows where

some things are never meant to last

When it breaks down it breaks down fast

This trucks not as good as it used to be

Bout twenty years out of warranty



It’s a long hard road to the next town

Ain’t no place to be broken down

I just reached up and tore off the rear view mirror

if i keep driving I might disappear

Radio’s dead don’t make a sound

I’m too far gone now to turnaround
