Lyrics and Liners

I had a ’71 Mustang convertible. And there is a Delaware beach road that is a perfectly straight line for about 20 miles. I was driving it one night thinking all was right with the world and feeling the cool, late night summer air in my face and glancing up at a billion stars… After a bit, lost in it, I got to wondering how fast I was going. Glancing down at the speedometer, the needle sitting on 110, I had a radical thought: “you might want to slow down.” I took my own advice, but only after couple more miles when I saw the lights of the next little beach town up ahead. 

 

That all wasn’t right in my world became evident a few weeks later. That rather harsh reality led me to follow the muse. I told myself then: “do the music.” And I did. So, this one is about a moment in Time that is a touchstone for me. “110” as I call it about a place and time many years ago that got me going down this road. As it turned out, 110 takes me where I want to go when I’m driving, cranking some tunes.

Straight line two lane beach road

Driving a buck ten at 2AM

Crankin’ Big Star September Girls

I had no idea then

How soon this thing was changing

Like a spinnin’ top spun out

Ain’t been back there in so long

Got no reason to go now

 

Doing a buck ten lost in it

2AM ain’t no regrettin’

A buck ten lost in it

 

Stuck in constant closed loop

With thoughts slowly rollin’

They drift in and out of

The sentence for the sin

And the price, boy, that you’re paying

Can sometimes be too much

Yeah ya live it breathe it 

Ya keep it close enough

 

Doing a buck ten lost in it

2AM ain’t no regrettin’

A buck ten lost in it

 

Yeah ya live it breathe it 

Ya keep her close enough…

 

Doing a buck ten lost in it

2AM ain’t no regrettin’

A buck ten lost in it
