By the Radio
 

Listening to Springsteen and Petty on my ride
From Nashville to Memphis, just trying to kill the time
40 weaves its way over rivers and roads
Other than the truck beside me, I’m traveling alone
I don’t miss this misery; some people call it home
I’ll let Ryan take me away to New York, New York

Oh I stay alive by the radio, It’s all I know
Oh the spirit of the music goes From high to low, its drive me on

  The Avett Brothers tell me about their shame
And I know the burden of carrying that pain
I’ll let the Band take the weight from me
  Jeff Tweedy tells me that there is a light
And even on this cloudy drive, I’m thinking that he’s right
I’m waiting on the day to be where the light is

Oh I stay alive by the radio, It’s all I know
Oh the spirit of the music goes From high to low, its drive me on

  I’m tempted by the “come to Graceland” sign
But my Memphis girl is only grace on my mind
I can see her eyes shining like a national guitar

Oh I stay alive by the radio, It’s all I know
Oh the spirit of the music goes From high to low, its drive me on
