Don’t Even Take a Map

Some people in life feel they need a bunch of expensive toys

Like fancy boats and exotic cars to feel their need for joy

 

Some people get their fun from expensive lavish trips

Maybe taken on the Orient Express or a fancy cruise ship

 

Now we all like to have fun and enjoy the finer things in life

We need the time to just recharge and relieve all of the strife

 

We all can’t always just pack up and head out at any time

Or jump in a fancy boat or car and leave at the drop of a dime

 

But we all can take a just little time on any Sunday afternoon

To get in the car and take a drive and explore like Daniel Boone

 

You don’t have to trek through the forest or climb a mountain wall

You can find things on an old back road that bring pleasure to us all

 

It may be the little deserted cemetery lying beneath the old Oak trees

Or the road with branches hanging across full of autumns colored leaves

 

You may find a road that travels past a meadow full of wild flowers

If you are lucky you will see it during one of summer’s light rain showers

 

There is nothing more fun than to just drive down a little lonesome road

Not knowing or caring where the little road ends or even where it goes

 

You may see a little run down shack that was someone’s home many years ago

But now it no longer houses them but is a place for beautiful vines to grow

 

So next Sunday afternoon pack a picnic and put on sunglasses and a baseball cap

Roll down your windows and drive America’s back roads and don’t even take a map

 

From My World to Yours,
