Lyrics

Highway man lay down
In your field of dreams
When your road is done
You can lean on me
It was the rhythm of the rain that made you run
Towards the evening sun
One or another midnight train
Over red iron
Highway man lay down
In your field of dreams

Walking man come on
To your water dream
When your road is gone
You can lean on me
We’ll take the low road side
Before the evening tide
When the river’s high
Can you remember how the red wine
Made you cry
Singing “The Water Is Wide”
Walking man come on
To your water dream

Sunshine man rave on
In your cosmic dream
Starry roads roll on
You can lean on me
Through those crystal streams
Of brokedown palace dreams
Down those harvest basement stairs
Your china doll
May have survived it all
I saw her standing there
Sunshine man rave on
In your cosmic dream

Roadside man dream on there’s no deeper blue
When the world is gone I will lean on you
I don’t have to know where the road will go
Just give me wheels on fire
I’m missing you what do I have to do
To hear the higher choir
Roadside man dream on
There’s no deeper blue
