lyrics

’Took a short vacation to find some inspiration.
The writer in me never rests.
’Got the car loaded, bid adieu to home, then
hit the road and headed west
where Dairy Queens and Mickey D’s
stick out like weeds in tranquil scenes
‘cause industry left the business centers.
Downtowns have seen better days.
The economy’s now based on visitors who hop on
and off of the interstate.
The travelers just passing through
don’t stay for long, there’s no reason to.
But these tiny towns are far from dead
‘cause their combines turn the fields to bread
as the corn-belt keeps the nation fed.
What else is there to do instead
in the heartland where stars and stripes fly high?
Here, there’s such a sense of pride.
Americana, blue collar, working class ties
keeping that dream alive.
They do what they have to to survive.
Small town culture where everybody knows you and
watched you grow up with your best
friends you’ve known your whole life who stayed behind as ties that
bind you like you never left.
But there are some myths that still persist
like they’re all just hicks living in sticks.
But these race-car fans with their farmer’s tans
who sing ‘Country Wide’ with tears in their eyes
are the kindest breed and eager to treat
you like family. That’s life
in the heartland with farmland far and wide.
Take it in as you drive by
distant silos near corn-rows that reach for the sky
grow knee-high by the fourth-of-July.
They work the earth until they die.
I see why.
***
This community of tractor-geeks
are all no more than grown men with toys.
But it’s all they’ve known since they were boys,
and it’s their time to make some noise
in the heartland where stars and stripes fly high.
Here, there’s such a sense of pride.
Americana, blue collar, working class ties
keeping that dream alive.
They do what they have to to survive.
The porch-swings on a summer night
romanticize a way of life
where people treat each other right.
Until next year, I’ll say goodbye.
