"Juarez" as written by and Kevin Griffin....
Worn out in Juarez
Asking the dust for change
Worn out in Juarez
A punch drunk assassin
Getting caught in the rain

Driving all the way
From Albuquerque
Living on Funyuns
And beef jerky, yeah

Wearing the ages
Mining the seats for cash
Worn on the edges
Faded like a photo
Left too long on the dash

Busking all the way
From Sarasota
Chasing mini thins
With cherry cola, yeah

It's a dream life

Hitching all the way
From Minnesota
Sunflower seeds
In your scotch and soda

It's a dream life
Ah, it's a dream life

Worn out in Juarez
Worn out in Juarez

    General Comment4 in the a.m. is the perfect analogy for this tune; haunting, half awake...lyrically, it also beautifully captures the rhythm and tone of life on the road for a band. the fact that kevin griffin used "busking" , and rhymed his way through the map, demonstrates his song writing skill, and his homage to the greats like McCartney, Dylan and Petty. The band perfectly weighs in (musically responds?), on the track. Seriously, a top ten track by this band.
