The Hospice Car

When the low winds blow
She goes out
Knows it’s time, paints her name
Where loss is found
On this car of mine

She was a sailor
Oh tall, tall girl come shining now
Come shining

It must be written
This chronicle on the car I race
Around, around, around
This iron memoir

There had to be a witness west out to the speedway
Gonna drag her painted name across the line
Then turn from home and leave all this behind

When the moonlight trails
I’ll whisper
Better yet won’t speak at all
About her

The sky above us, forsaken ones that loved us
They both reach down

I’m gonna drag my weary heart across the line
Then turn from home and leave all this behind
Leave it all behind

When the low winds blow
When the moonlight trails
When the long rains fall
When the long rains fall
