Recorded at Dave Coleman's Howard's Apartment Studio in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday April 5, 2017. Written in June 2016 with Albert T. Beck in Pensacola, Florida.


When the sun has passed over and captured the day
The dark clouds and shadows have all passed away
And I by the wayside a hasty night camp
Having slowed my speed off the last exit ramp

And it's goodbye to those main street blues
It's been all that it can be
I'm leaving with nothing to lose
So for now it's the backroads for me

Now just the scrub brush and the scruffy side roads
They might threaten many but wherever I go
There for the evening the stars now my friends
It's where I say my prayers and I get settled in

And it's goodbye to that crooked game
Time to find all that I've been denied
If I stayed there than nothing would change
So for now it's the backroads I ride

It's adios mis amigos I'm out and I'm free
Me and my thoughts and my who knows what be
Tomorrow's tomorrow and there may be new friends
There might be a guitar and the good time begins

And it's goodbye to those old town streets
I've locked up and turned out the light
I've worn out that old concrete
And I'm driving the backroads tonight
I'm driving the backroads tonight
And I'm singing a backroads goodbye
