Louise Mosrie: Music

Fly

(Louise Mosrie)

An ode to my 1989 Nissan Sentra whom I gave away at 238,000 miles and is still running today...

Fly

My car is small but solid

She doesn’t need much gas.

Compact and nimble- like to keep it simple

Plenty of miles left and going fast

 

No bells or whistles

No European design

Just a damn good engine

And a smile, yeah.

 

            So many roads

            So many ways to go

            I’ll follow one and leave the rest behind

            Open the windows

            I’ll push the pedal down (crank up that radio darlin’)

            And watch me fly

            Fly.

 

Nothing better than a long road trip

Down some old backroads to ease my busy mind.

Past rows of sea pines and city skylines.

Friendly people wave as I go by.

 

Just give me a good map,

A country highway

And you, my love, please say you’re

Going my way.

 

            chorus

 

Sometimes I look back in the rear-view mirror

Thinking about yesterday

But I got to know what’s up around the bend

Keeps me moving on and

I wouldn’t go back anyway…anyway.
