Track 8 from "Babble On", "Every Blue Highway".
This song has been in my set list for a long time but I never got around to recording it. There's a couple like this on the record.
I used to travel the Interstate Highway system a lot. I had favorite truck stops, restaurants, etc. Set cruise control, find something to listen to & watch the emptiness roll by. This song began at a truckstop in Wyoming one night, sitting at the counter watching us eat biscuits & gravy and getting the coffee thermos filled for another 200 miles.
Michael Sappington played mandolin. Freddy Dathe played bass & sang backing vocals.+ add a comment
