​Eight Cylinders

This song is by Yonder Mountain String Band and appears on the album Elevation (1999).

Because your reasons are as cool as ice
And your mind somehow paid the price
You'll pay it again--somewhere--on down the line
When you're there I'm sure you'll stare
And I'll be behind you

Because your day is a clock of grey hours
And your smile has those tallest powers
But sometimes, Jezebelle, it shines like the sun
When you're gone and when you're done
I will be behind you

Because your songs are so sad and tired
Because hunger is a darkness inside the phone wire
It always has been, it always will be
So it seems to me
But that's the price you pay when you say
I will be behind you

Because your Ford broke down on 47
Because eight cylinders is your idea of heaven
You'll get it running--someday--and you'll ride right down the line
When you do, I hope it's true,
And I'll ride beside you
When you do, I hope it's true,
And I'll ride beside you
