Nod along with Doug Schmude on your next roadtrip, and in the meantime, just enjoy it as you reminisce about your last few highway miles.
I wrote this song on a road trip across the Western US last year. Driving is a great time to clear your mind and think; and
in my case toss lyrics and melodies around in my head. With the pandemic, most of us have not been able to travel like
we’d prefer. This is minor of course, compared to the many serious effects of COVID and the associated lockdown. But
here’s hoping this song can provide a little highway mile therapy. — Doug Schmude
