Reminiscin' On The Mother Road

Words and Music by Alan Harkrader

About the Song

Take a slow ride up to the grand canyon.


Lyrics

Let's just go a little bit slower
Let's just take a little more time
Let's turn the clock a little bit backwards
Back to the youth that's still in our mind

Now we don't need to ride that fast track
We don't need that stop and go
We'll just cruise that ribbon of highway
Let's reminisce on the mother road

Outside of Ashfork on to Kingman
There is a stretch of road so fine
Just a few miles from the four-lane
You'll get the feelin' goin' back in time

You've been workin' of that classic
You've been spendin' money and time
The weather here's great here most everyday
So take her out and let her unwind, let her unwind

Stop at the Snow Cap for a soda
See the canyon if the light is right
There's not enough of this kind of travelin'
Enjoy this trip while there's still time, while there's still time
while there's still time

Outside of Kingman on to Ashfork
There is a stretch of road so fine
Just a few miles from the rat race
You get the feelingĀ that you'reĀ back in time
