lyrics

Cigarette ashes flutter down like snowflakes to the ground
Long haired girl in a cloth top car leaking banjo sounds
Through the desert in winter, left a shoe in Flagstaff
Past abandoned shanties with cinematic grace and a laugh

Maps of the west, maps of the west
I wouldn't have known
She never would have guessed
Stopping only when she needed to rest
Driving east, the girl with maps of the west

Model A sputter past the railroad yard
With the cops in the gutter after the work got hard
Trash can fires at midnight, street signs torn down
On she'd drive to see the next town

Maps of the west, maps of the west
I wouldn't have known
She never would have guessed
Stopping only when she needed to rest
Driving east, the girl with maps of the west

Towards the Oklahoma oil fields
Towards the Carolina pines
Towards the hill of Virginia
Towards me to find

I'm so grateful you found me
At the Black Rabbit Bar
We talked deep into the night
About following that western star
With you I want to ramble
With you I want to roam
Take out those maps of the west
And head for that Pacific foam

Maps of the west, maps of the west
I wouldn't have known
She never would have guessed
Stopping only when she needed to rest
Driving east, the girl with maps of the west

Leland Sundries New York

“Leland Sundries, a band from New York led by Nick Loss-Eaton, is dedicated to storytelling in a way that recalls Woody Guthrie and his Folkways brethren. [Their] scrappy Americana will get you longing for empty two-lane highways and kudzu-encased back porches.” – New York Times
