This song is by The Mountain Goats and appears on the compilation album Ghana (2002).

I had to stop and catch my breath
When the telephone rang out as loud as death
It was three in the morning
There was a low drone of katydids behind your voice
When I came down from harrisburg pennsylvania
And I saw you by the highway

You asked me if the north was all right
And I said it got kind of cold at night
I could feel your bones shivering way down there in birmingham
And when I came down from harrisburg pennsylvania
And I saw you by the highway

You reminded me of all the things you'd given up forever
And you asked about the children
And you asked about the weather
And then I came down from harrisburg pennsylvania
And I saw you by the highway
