Take This Tune #5 - Life Is A Highway



I have no idea what you folks will make of this one, but I wanted a fun sound to close out the summer. The band is Rascal Flatts. If you aren't familiar with them, check out the link above and some of their other videos on You Tube.

The video is the race scene from the cartoon movie "Cars". You can have a great deal of fun on the official movie web site including building and racing your own cartoon car.

The song lyrics actually have something to say. So ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. See you on Monday.



Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Somethimes you bend and sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your head to the wind
There's a world outside ev'ry darkened door
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won't hesitate
Break down the garden's gate
There's not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

Through all these cities and all these towns
It's in my blood and it's all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights

Knock me down get back up again
You're in my blood
I'm not a lonely man
There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors

Gimme gimme gimme gimme yeah
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once
But now we look in the eye

There ain't no load that I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

Mine's up, Jamie. Route 66 came to me right away! And thank goodness I found the Rolling Stones singing the song! :)

You're right, I couldn't pass the is one up but I may have gone in a slightly different direction than you would have thought! Or then again - maybe not!
