Jenell Kesler Everyone loves a road song & this gem's no exception. You can feel the wind in your hair as you tap your fingers on the steering wheel to a crackly beat dashboard speaker that's delivering songs from unknown radio stations [from perhaps unknown times] as you cross the desert in the middle of the night, eyes wild in a world of stoner shadow-play an a velvet blue sky filled with stars. Been down that trail before, and New Moon Rising has brought back those memories like a half forgotten kiss.

lyrics

I packed my bags and I headed for the west coast
Half a tank of gas, half a tank of rolled smokes
See there was nothin' left to keep me
I hit the pedal and I headed for the city

I drove all night for the coastal highway
Like a bird in flight, like a midwest runaway
I was lookin' for my freedom
Didn't know how to go, knew I couldn't stay

Grab the wheel, let the highway be you're guide
Take what ya need, leave the rest behind
Hit the road now, you gypsy rollin' stone, just keep on drivin'

Thousand miles behind, a thousand more ahead
A million thoughts runnin' through my head
I guess I never could settle down, never stay too long in one town

Grab the wheel, let the highway be you're guide
Take what ya need, leave the rest behind
Hit the road now, you gypsy rollin' stone, just keep on drivin'

When your freedom calls, and ya know it's time
Will ya heed the call, will ya fall behind
Will ya take the wheel and go, When it's in your soul then ya really know


Grab the wheel, let the highway be you're guide
Take what ya need, leave the rest behind
Hit the road now, you gypsy rollin' stone, just keep on drivin'
