Everytime I am getting ready to travel - or am actually traveling - for some reason or other, certain albums re-appear in my life. 1. would be Joni Mitchell Blue. If you don't know already, most of the songs on that album are about travel. 2. would be Graceland by Paul Simon, and then 3. is Simon again, singing the song "America" with Garfunkel. So in honor of that song. Here are the perfect words. My fave parts in bold.

Let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together
I've got some real estate here in my bag
So we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner's pies
And we walked off to look for America
Cathy I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh
Michigan seems like a dream to me now
It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw

I've gone to look for America
Laughing on the bus playing games with the faces
She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy
I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera
Toss me a cigarette I think there's one in the raincoat
We smoked the last one an hour ago
So I looked at the scenery she read her magazine
And the moon rose over an open field
Cathy 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
All come to look for America
