halfway home lyrics – billy pilgrim

on clear days it’s fast black dead west
sun on my cheek flat on my chest
i’m warm driving with all the citizens”
halfway to work, halfway home

and the radio says there’s been a terrible accident
somewhere up by the waterways
i do more driving before 8 o’clock
than most people do all day

“but the work is honest and the customers human”
don’t guess i could ask for more
the kids are in college and my wife is buying
every single dress in the store
and me, halfway to work halfway home

my doctor says my blood is pressuring me
my mama says this love is measuring me
up each tick turned off
the road ices long before the bridge
son just sit a while, and let the whiskey dull the edge
“but the work is honest and the customers human”
don’t guess i could ask for more
the kids are in college and my wife is buying
every single dress in the store

and me, halfway to work halfway home
and me, halfway to work halfway home
and me, i just sit in this bar
and me, i just drive in my car
and me i just stay in my head
and me, i just sleep in this bed
