Desperation Road - Michael Martin Murphey

Driving West out on I'm 40

On my way to taste some California wine

 

broke down family flagged me down

 

Near the Arizona line

 

Their whole world was in a pickup

 

I guess it couldn't pull the load

 

It was just our vacation

But to them it was desperation road

 

The lines on their faces

Told the story of the places that they'd been

 

Now their home is a highway

 

That never seems to end

 

Empty dreams and empty pockets

 

Sure can make a heavy load

 

To some of us it's just a highway

But to others it's desperation road

 

Their eyes had a sadness

From another place in time

 

A silent reminder that the grapes of wrath

Still make bitter wine

 

And it sure makes you wonder

 

'Bout all the seeds our country sows

 

Which of us will be the next

To travel down desperation road

 

I helped them start their pickup

And watched them as they faded out of sight

 

Guess the last thing I remember

Is the faces of the children in my lights

 

That night in a motel room

I have a dream that made my blood run cold

 

I saw my own wife and family

 

Standing out on desperation road

 

And their eyes had a sadness

 

From another place in time

 

A silent reminder that the grapes of wrath

Still make bitter wine

And it sure makes you wonder

'Bout all the seeds our country sows

 

Which of us will be the next

To travel down desperation road

 

Could be your own wife and family

Standing out on desperation road
