I listen to Gallagher & Lyle "Breakaway" as it reminds me of my first hitch, then anything by Van Morrison, Jackson Browne, John Prine and Bruce Springsteen. Lately two albums by Bruce Hornsby, The Way it is and Scenes from the South Side.
...and they lay down behind me
to sleep beside the road, till the morning has come,
where they know they will find me,
with my maps and my faith in the distance,
moving father on.
