lyrics

never driven it myself
but i've seen it many times
driving fast alone to see my girl
across the borderline
up ahead i see the sign

local road exits to the side
i don't need to drive it
i just need to pass it by
local road turns off from the eastbound lane
and tells me i will soon be holding her
in my arms again

all the yellow fields look the same
dirty trucks in single file
then i see the sign with basic name
and it's only fifty miles
until i see her smile

local road exits to the side
i don't need to drive it
i just need to pass it by
local road turns off from the eastbound lane
and tells me i will soon be holding her
in my arms again

it's good to have a landmark on your way
to watch for as you go
everybody needs some ritual
this i know
i watch for local road

local road exits to the side
i don't need to drive it
i just need to pass it by
local road turns off from the eastbound lane
and tells me i will soon be holding her
in my arms again
