Two of a Kind

album: Drifter's Wind (1985), track 8 of 10
author: John Ims
publisher: Rites of Passage/Variena Music, BMI 1985

Being on the road without a friend
Can make you feel life's loneliness
In a voice that rides the wind
Streaming 'cross the airwaves in a simple country song
One that you don't hear until the moon is full and bright
It was Texas once again
The one about the good old boy caught rememberin'
Images of childhood and the places he had been
Caught up in his questions wondering where it all would end
 CHORUS
   Just another midnight on the highway
   Houston in the distance
   Seems I'm always leaving love behind
   Singing along with someone whose soul is on the radio
   Sounds like me and the good old boy are two of a kind
   Two of a kind
   Sounds like me and the good old boy are two of a kind
Bedding down in a cheap hotel
Puts you in touch with an emptiness pickers know too well
Comes on strong as you drop your boots
And you sit up on the bed
Trying to keep your thoughts from dancing
All around your head
Then you fumble with the dial
Until you hear that melody singing sad and sweet
There you are again with him somewhere down the line
Feeling just a little better now as you hear the guitar whine
 CHORUS (X3)
Two of a kind
Sounds like me and the good old boy are two of a kind
Two of a kind
Sounds like me and the good old boy are two of a kind
