about

There is an insecurity to life in south Louisana which is reflected in this song, which shifts from straight ahead country to a place of slippery instability thanks to the haunting nature of the chorus section.

lyrics

The highway blues have found us
The blacktop’s got us down
On the road to somewhere
Everyone’s running ‘round
But here it comes again
Filling us with doubt
‘Cause ain’t nothing South of I-12
Built on solid ground

It’s just a few more hours
We’ll make it safe and sound
Perhaps one day we can settle in
And stop this run around
Eventually this duck and dodge
Will drive us from this town
‘Cause ain’t nothing South of I-12
Built on solid ground

Even if we stick around
And ride this party out
Cool winds come rushing in
On angry thunderclouds
But here it comes again
Filling us with doubt
‘Cause ain’t nothing South of I-12
Built on solid ground
