Hard to Imagine - ©Christopher Jones 1976

The sun is settin’
on a Midwestern town
The kids are runnin’ home
Ice cream in hand
I’d take a walk
among the fireflies
But I'm far too drunk to stand

And the plains stretch away
In the fading light
In the land of cornfields and the cow
I know that one day
I'll be leaving here
Though it's hard to imagine that now…

The sun is gone now
in this Midwestern town
The golf course is dotted with lovers
A Chevrolet goes by
with blood in its eye
As daughters go bad like their mothers

And the plains stretch away
In the fading light
In the land of cornfields and the cow
I know that one day
I'll be leaving here
Though it's hard to imagine that now…

It's such a long way from anywhere
Such a long way to go
I've got a fast car,
But my mind rolls so slow

And the plains stretch away
In the fading light
In the land of cornfields and the cow
I know that one day
I'll be leaving here
But I just don’t know how
Don’t know how…
