"Highways and Cigarettes" as written by and Jay Farrar....
Got caught up in a breakaway dream
Destination city of New Orleans
Cheap motels and [Incomprehensible]
Cross some bridges for eternity

Headed west for a two week stay
And saw the [Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible] is a part of you now
'Cause a bird sings songs of laughter

Still out there with the coffee stain
And puttin' miles on shoes
Can't escape the smell of cigarettes
Still livin' out these American midnight blues

Unless to clear the mind
With a Mexicali radio station
Keep an eye out for the border patrol
Checkin' for drugs and so called aliens

Highways and dreams forever together
In the minds of the free and the innocent
Always a future in a travelers hands
Starting fires on the river and madness

Still out there with the coffee stains
And puttin' miles on shoes
Can't escape the smell of cigarettes
Still livin' out these American midnight blues

Still out there with the coffee stains
And puttin' miles on shoes
Can't escape the smell of cigarettes
Still livin' out these American midnight blues
