Just so gorgeous from S&G.. Love it so much..
America when the roads were wide open and hitchhiking was a choice for safe and cheap ride to places
Sweet sweet innocence... . . . . . . .
Let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together

These collections of S & G are entertaining a whole new generation. My teenage children LOVE these! It's also nice to have them listening to music I can listen to... like "Daddy, I found this cool group! They're called REO..." I love it!

I love this song. It has these sort of sweet, light lyrics, then at the end there's that one line:

"Kathy, I'm lost" I said, though I knew she was sleeping
"I'm empty and aching and I don't know why"
Counting the cars on the New Jersey turnpike
They've all come to look for America

It's perfect.
