Drive North

I’ll light out early, drive the sunrise side up 23
I might make Black River when the sun is high and I’m feelin’ free
I’ve got no baggage, no reputation
I’m just a seeker passin’ through

I could drive east, where the money’s made and people pack the streets
I could drive west, where people smile for nothin’ but the harmony’s still sweet
I could drive south, where Spanish Moss hangs on the sycamore trees in the heat

I drive north, around here we drive north
Drive north!

In the early haze I saw a young Blue Heron flyin up the river bed
In my early days I grew up on Lake Huron in a time so different
I’ve got no baggage, no reputation
I’m just a seeker passin’ through

I drive north, around here we drive north
Drive north!
Drive north to the lakes and rivers
To the big bear sleepin’
Drive north
In our four wheelers, our boats and our beer
We drive north

I made Indian River by twilight time, had a beer at the Wigwam
By mid-day tomorrow I’ll be in St Ignace singin’ some new song

I drive north, around here we drive north
Drive north!
Drive north to the lakes and rivers
To the big bear sleepin’
Drive north
In our four wheelers, our boats and our beer
We drive north
