about

This song is written about our first trip to SXSW in 2008. Every band that has spent anytime on the road inevitably has a song about being on the road, as they should. So much stupid, fun, ridiculous stuff happens that traveling with a band on tour is something every musician should get a chance to do.

lyrics

Austin or bust, in a bucket of rust.
Blue skies and pavement ahead
James at the wheel, when the wheel lost her feel,
And the girl, she was nearly dead.

45 Tire met a neck for a hire
Said there's one way to go
You gotta get to Dickson
Down a long and winding road

Dickson
No were never gonna make it

To Dickson, yeah Dickson
800 Miles to go.
Dickson, yeah Dickson
It's a long long way to the show

Now Dickson, Tenn.
Lay around the bend
And thus Advanced Auto Parts
Breakfast at Sonic
Though Nick didn't want it
For he had doom in his heart

But old dirty shoes
Gave us magic juice
And said "you're ready to go"
Now get out of Dickson
And back on the open road

Dickson
I think we're gonna make it

To Dickson, yeah Dickson
800 Miles to go.
Dickson, yeah Dickson
It's a long long way to the show

Dickson
I know we're gonna make it
