Those Ol' Back Roads

Heading down those ol' back roads
Dad at the wheel
Taking a shortcut
But they always took longer

Old farms, furrowed fields, forgotten friends
"Isn't this wheres" and "Wasn't that whens"

Dust trails behind us
Adventures ahead
Too fast over the bumps and curves
Holding on tight and giggling in the back seat
Stomachs dropping and squeals of delight
Dad's smirk in the rear view mirror
And Mom's mock admonishments

Who needed a destination
After a ride like that?

Always the journey that mattered
Always the memories that mattered

Always the family that matters
