Before picking our children up from school today, I took twenty minutes to drive down a lovely gravel road near our house. I’m going to share more soon about the journey our family has been on this past year, but for now, learning how to take a few minutes here and there for recreation has been much-needed spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical therapy.
I wrote a little ditty in my head as a drove.
It doesn’t matter that the trees are bare, that’s how my heart has felt in this past year, deep within those cold brown branches, dormant buds are taking chances, that the sun is gonna shine again, and spring will usher summer in, and hope is carried on the wind, that this is just a season.
Other songs about dirt/gravel roads were playing in my head from my memory long ago. Here’s a few I could think of right off.
I’ll Take the Dirt Road – Sawyer Brown
Red Dirt Road – Brooks and Dunn
Car Wheels on a Gravel Road – Lucinda Williams
What are your favorite songs specifically about dirt or gravel roads? I’d love for you to share them here so my readers and I can enjoy them too.
