"New Highway" as written by and Kevin/kasher Rudolf....
My father came to Westville and helped to build the town
They damn near broke their backs, trying to break the ground
But some dreams are not for catching, they seldom ever stay
They run like a river of our tears
Down the new highway

My mother was a tailor, she fashioned all my clothes
I wore those burlap britches down a dozen dusty roads
She passed away in '69, Thank God before the day
She didn't have to watch our dreams go
Down the new highway

Now the mainstreet's dark and silent
Not a shadow or a sound
But midnight brings the spirits out
From the coal mines in the ground
In my dreams they all come back again
The good folks of the day
They're all trying to save they life they knew from going
Down the new highway

My brother was a mill-wright, he helped to build my home
But the work ran out as did my wife, and now I'm all alone
Without a steady income, I couldn't ask for her to stay
So I sent my love and my two young kids
Down the new highway

I remember Freddy Landsburg at the farm beside the road
He'd wave to every pasing car, he never was alone
But the 4 lane left him breathless as it took his view away
Now his spirit haunts the old roadside where it meets
The new highway

All things come to pass, you see it everywhere you turn
It's just a big race to the finish line, I hope someday we'll learn
But some dreams are not for catching, they seldom ever stay
They run like a river of our tears
Down the new highway

Some dreams are not for catching, they seldom ever stay
They run like a river of our tears
Down the new highway

Down the new highway

Down the new highway

Down the new highway
