We were on cruise control till the toll was paid

I saw many signs along the way which turned my head

Lonsome Springs of water where I almost drowned

Bridge on the River Kwai where I was imprisoned by you

Virginia is for lovers but we took the ferry the long way round

The Statue Of Liberty waved till I paid the fare

Cape May we go get drunk and did

In the Cityof Brotherly Love there was none to my torment

The car needed a tune up and I sang our song

And you sang out of tune and I forgot the verses

But ,"Momma I'm Coming Home." 

PS : I used books, titles,stories and situations of my life for visuals and Ozzy's song, " Momma I'm Coming Home

    enjoyed stopping by tonight, for your musings but not your cruisings. I hate those floaty things. God Bless. Dave.

    Patrick, Oh the old road trips you've put down on paper. I was with you as you've retraces so many of my old trips to the tune of the road. That final stretch always led to home. Great poem and memories. love, Kathy
