"Jefferson" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
from these lists i put the blame
if everything from jefferson down to arch street remains
along the lines tonight's the same
i believe i'd use my feet

what we know -- i go too far
the border of the granite state
we're a river apart
the calls break
my hearing's hard

i believe i'd use my feet
i believe i'd use my feet

the roles to play may not be fair
if 89 and 93 are the number of stairs
know i am and it's not there
i believe i'd use my feet
i believe i'd use my feet

    General CommentJefferson is a small town in northern New Hampshire with a population slightly higher than 1,000. New Hampshire is "the Granite State". And the number of stairs, 89 and 93 are the two major highways in New Hampshire. "and the boarder of the Granite State, we're a river a part". The western boarder of NH is the Connecticut River. So maybe in the song, he has a lover in Vermont, which is on the other side of the River.
