There are rules for broken wheels
I guess I'd better buy
The bible of flat tires

I've been a little low
For a great big while
And you have bourn the burden
Of this saggin' sigh

There are ghosts
Up and down these roads
They're haunting burned out diners
And drinking black coffee

The signs up on their walls
Though painted in many colors
They don't say a thing
They don't say anything at all

Engine, it struggles just to make it here alive
Honey, I'd just be another ghost if you didn't help me drive

There are whispers
The sagebrush and the sun
The thistle and the lark
They sing to one another

And we could learn to listen
If we only had the time,
The ears and inclination
The reason and the rhyme
