Don't Slow Down, Zachary

Written By: Kelli Rae Powell

We knew August in the plains
We’d know winter when it rained
We’d meet new seasons everyday
Shake hands and drive away
We found cities, we got lost
We got lucky, paid the cost
We’d be through before the dew could settle in the morning

Still I’d rather not go home, I don’t even have a home
I want the road to be my home, I wanna drive forever
So don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary, I wanna drive forever

Remember how she touched your hand
Remember solemn passing bands
Of old men smoking Parliaments
Chicago was a challenge
And there were cities in between
Some were nice and some were mean
Remember when the sheets were clean
Remember when the floors weren’t

Still I’d rather not go home, I don’t even have a home
I want the road to be my home, I wanna drive forever
So don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary, I wanna drive forever
So don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary, I wanna drive forever

Each day would burn through my right arm
As we drove past factories, drove past farms
And people living in their homes I didn’t know the names for
I won’t forget the saddest song
The girl who came and sang alone
I cried a little, drank a lot
You said, my friend, let’s get you home now


Please, don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary, I wanna drive forever
So don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary, I wanna drive forever

We knew boredom, we knew dust
Dust was caked all over us
We got so bored we tasted lust
Louisville nearly killed us
Still, I’d rather not go home
I don’t want to face that man
I could fill a lonely tome with all the dreams
He’s gonna make me wait for

So please, don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary, I wanna drive forever
So don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary
Don’t slow down, Zachary, I wanna drive forever
