Canadian Highway

from by Radoslav Lorkovic



I was a few miles into Canada north of Sault Ste. Marie. Night had fallen. The road seemed unusually dark and empty. Very soothing. I was on my way to Quebec. I scribbled undeciperable jibberish on a paper bag. It took legions of Egyptologists to decode it!


I've been ridin' all night on this Canadian highway
northern lights light up the sky
radio plays from a Thunder Bay station
its been a mile since a car passed me by


Here the nights a little colder
road's a little longer
wind blows a little harder
and the drinks are a little stronger
the sky's a little clearer
the light's a little lower
and the miles keep rollin on by

I met you one night on the Canadian highway
on your way down to old New Orleans
you got in real slow
I felt the cold wind blow
As we rode down to Sault Ste. Marie


Got a few miles to go on the Canadian highway
I listen to my old motor run
Its good bye to the Great Lakes
good morning steak and eggs
as we ride down to the Delta sun
