Hudson Terraplane (Boris' Song)

Words and music by Torey Adler © 2003

Wherever you go, I will follow you,

You're on this road ahead of me,

Driving the interstate thinking ain't life great,

and I can see your license plate ahead of me,

How come you act like you're on the run,

Whatr is it that you think I've done,

What is it that you think that I want to do?

I've got a brand new Ford,

with fuel injection and I thank the lord,

for the horsepower that it takes to keep up with you,

Your Hudson Terraplane

Is cruising through the passing lane

Shining chrome in the driving rain,

But I'll catch up to you again

Blue ribbon in your hair, I see it in your rear view mirror

There's a line between love and fear,

I can't tell what's happening here...

But if all my dreams come true,

Then I will spend some time with you

Come on, take me for a ride,

I don't care where we're going just as long as you drive,

I just want the dashboard lights,

Ahead of me,

I cancelled all our reservations,

Threw out the map at the last gas station,

I kicked out the headlights,

They were blinding me

The radio plays The Terraplane Blues,

And I'd be lost without you,

I've been blinded, tell me what you see,

Driving down the interstate,

Singing ain't life great,

I can hear the hands of fate strumming songs for me

Your Hudson Terraplane

Is cruising through the passing lane

Shining chrome in the driving rain,

But I'll catch up to you again

Blue ribbon in your hair, I see it in your rear view mirror

There's a line between love and fear,

I can't tell what's happening here...

But if all my dreams come true,

Then I will spend some time with you

And the rain comes down

On the windshield and on the ground

And the horn won't blown

Even though you pound and pound

And I thought for a minute

It was just no good

You've got gasoline instead of blood

I've got a box of matches

I'm striking 'em down to the wood
