I remember when I lived there. Inspired by a cross-country train ride from Seattle to New York, by way of San Francisco, Denver, and Chicago


I Miss America
Words and music by Anne M Carley

I miss America
Earthworms on the sidewalk
coasters on the dinette set
friends come by to talk
bring the baby in the bassinet
I miss America

In the good old days,
you had stories by the campfire
herons big and gawky
boulders in the river
double rainbows in the Rockies

I miss America

you get seagulls on the asphalt
plastic on the davenport
wide aisles at the grocery
you get geysers in the trailer court, oh


Every day,
I remember when I lived there
big elm trees for shading
evenings on the front porch
didn't know it would be fading

I miss America...
