Bright Red Road

by Ellsworth

The first song will coax you in the door. After that it's a wild hayride down the potholed terrain of present-day Americana. Guitar, piano, accordion, saxophone, cello, fiddle & harmonica are the various vehicles for the always bewitching lyrics.

Album Notes
I dream a road to anywhere
Proclaim my hobo heart still young
Gag my grumbles
More or less
& grin the long run
The lazydazandnites ooze by
I laugh great thoughts
Doze grand outcomes
Dreaming the implausible dream
Cruising down that stupid blinking blacktop
Like a bloodshot jalopy
Whose time has come
The radio blaring catchy tunes
Between the catchier ads
Someone running for office on a swell sounding ticket
Another fat dog with a big grinning beard gets elected
Bombs are released on the nunnery
The Batmobile goes racing by
& I
Fall asleep at the wheel
Careening through middle age

Am I awake now?
As the scenery changes
My sense of accomplishment grows
The creeping edges of towns congeal
Malls with stuff everyone wants
And has too much of
Food courts, movie theatres, big box stores
Designer beer, modular homes, year-round potted trees
Acres of free parking, sexy gas stations, voluptuous arcades
The big picture is impossible to see
I move forward anyway
Going through the motions
Saving my cash for tomorrows wake
Following the whiff of if
Through unreality's sadistic little maze
Emerging, as always, in some strange desert
Scanning the horizon for smoke
Howling at the misty moon
Conjuring melody from desert air
The big bell of silence ringing in my ear
The bright red road still ahead
