Dirt under your nails
From working in the garden
Trying to grow a plant
With the wind under our sails
You and me we’re getting started
Don’t tell me that you can’t

Ice cold knuckles
Ice cold feet
The asphalt buckles
And they crack the concrete
Number one road
I know you too well
Don’t do what you're told
Don’t break your spell

Lonely love
I rest my case
You been gone too long
To come back to this place
Lonely love
Every heart is gonna hitchhike
The day I need a photograph
To remember what you look like

I could feel resistance
Coming down the wire
I would go the distance
Rolling on these four black tires
On the number one road
Through the thick and the thin
I will do what I’m told
Just let it begin

Lonely love
I rest my case
You been gone too long
To come back to this place
Lonely love
Every heart is gonna hitchhike
The day I need a photograph
To remember what you look like

    General Commentthis is a very good song...first of all, for non-canadians maybe i can clear up some of the cancon in this song...number one road is the trans-canada highway....it is very popular for people from where i am from in ontario to hitchhike out west, and surprisingly easy...as for the song...the first verse is about building a relationship (growing a plant/wind under our sails)...and then i think it is about being away from home on tour across canada...he is talking about how lonely he is missing someone....then he says that his heart will hitchike when he can't remember this person he misses...third verse i think the wire could represent a telephone call or the telephone wires that line the highway...through the thick and the thin sounds like a vow to stick together no matter how hard it gets being away...that is my take....
