lyrics

I’m driving the midnight run
On past the Gunflint Trail out on Highway 61
The sun’s scowled off, the moon smiles down
Reflecting like a pinwheel tonight
Spinning ‘round and ‘round

My dear wife left, said I’ve got no style
She’s a black haired Madonna with a machine gun smile
She’s a magician of great skill
She can make a mountain out of a mole hill

The stone bridge sleeps, the lighthouse beams
Blue thoughts weaving in and out of my red-eyed dreams
Sometimes I see hear in the cloud-line seams
But I know, it’s only wishful thinking

Night after day, I drive this road
Try to steer around the deer and pick up another load
Stories change as pages fly
Red Riding Hood has just run off with a sheep in wolf’s disguise

The stone bridge sleeps, the lighthouse beams
Blue thoughts weaving in and out of my red-eyed dreams
Tonight I don’t know just exactly what it means
But I know, it’s only wishful thinking

So I’m driving the midnight run
On past the Gunflint Trail out on Highway 61
It’s 4am, I’m near the end of my line
Drop the mail at the station, I hit it right on time

The stone bridge sleeps, the lighthouse beams
Blue thoughts still weaving in and out of my red-eyed dreams
Sometimes I see her in the cloud-line seams
But I know it’s only wishful thinking
