bumper to bumper

Thought I’d try this with a more-than-usually-period feel to the demo:

(Actually, I pinched that chord sequence between verses from Don MacLeod. Sorry, Don.)

There’s a desert wind pushing the leaves around
and rhythm on the radio
and I just picked up some headlines
you might just like to know

I’ve got high compression and four free wheels
and a change of scene is overdue
and I just can’t wait to get back on the road
– bumper to bumper with you

Keep your fingers off my stickshift
if you can’t take the pace
but there’s a tune-up behind my headlamps
to bring a smile back to your face

I used to get my kicks on a solo cruise
now the only thing I want to do
is step on the gas and get back on the road
– bumper to bumper with you

I used to be the hot-rod hotshot
straining every iron nerve
with devil behind me on a V8 trip
and my wheels on dead man’s curve

Now I’m in the mood for some locomotion
and burning off a little juice
and I just can’t wait to get back on the road
– bumper to bumper with you.
