Louisiana Donut Counter Man

louisiana donut counter man
pointing to an atlas lying under my hand
and I think I hear an echo some somewhere long ago
but it's just the man trying to say hello
sleeping on the indian mound
as the freezing fog falls down to the ground
the ferris wheel turns through the night
taking me to the other side
and they'll never capture that and now that you mention it
that's kind of sad

one legged hitch hike man
trying to make his way to houston
and he tunes my radio down the dial
to where a one legged man would come from
crashing in a rest stop field
my forehead feels like a windshield
ferris wheel turns through the stars
taking me to where the others are
and they'll never capture that
and now that you mention it
I should be glad
no they'll never capture that not in a million years
and that's a fact

and they'll never capture that
not in a movie and not in a book
