BETWEEN MASON AND DICKSON
[ country; co-written by J.K. Coltrain ]


       Beside me she stirs softly as I slowly crawl outíta bed
       Aní stumble through the dark tryiní hard not to wake the kids
       A quick shave and shower, warminí up the old Freightliner
       Not much time to be a father aní no time left for her

             Between Mason, Ohio and Dickson, Tennessee
             Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony
             Leaviní before first light, gettin' home way too late
             Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate

       Weekend comes her city jobís done, the kids are outíta school
       But Iíll be gone on a local run, there's risiní cost of rent an' fuel
       Sunday mornin' I sleep in, sheíll take the kids to church and pray
       In the evening we wonít fight again over all work aní no play

             Between Mason, Ohio and Dickson, Tennessee
             Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony
             Leaviní before first light, gettin' home way too late
             Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate

       You know, they say Jesus died for everyone; red aní blue, blue aní gray
       But lately it seems Iím on the losiní side of barely gettiní by day to day

             Between Mason, Ohio and Dickson, Tennessee
             Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony
             Leaviní before first light, gettin' home way too late
             Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate
             Hours take their toll, eighteen wheels roll on the concrete interstate

       Aní Lord I pray someday, some way Iíll be free
       Caught between hard rock and southern country harmony
