Lyrics
[4/4, brightly] MILEPOST 43 --J. Wrabek [THE RAP: I usually consider a conference good if I get a song out of it, and I did get one out of Pineyfest this year. This song is for fellow musician and songwriter Al David, who stopped at a rest stop to freshen up on his way to Pineyfest this year, and left his suitcase in the restroom—and didn’t realize it till he got to Nashville.] 1. In the darkness by the Interstate At a rest stop with no name There’s a suitcase that belonged to me Beside the bathroom sink; I won’t be going back for it, It’s just a memory— A dozen pair of underwear At Milepost 43. 2. Never knew what I was missing Till I hit Nashville late that night— Acute distress, near nakedness, No suitcase by my side; Should I erect a sign? Post a blog online? Say “please mail ‘em back to me? See my tears of gri3ef at my missing briefs At Milepost 43. CHORUS: Milepost 43 Is a special place for me; It’s the final spot for the clothes I’ve got Next to my anatomy; Should you happen by I hope you’ll think of me— My underwear is waiting there At Milepost 43. [LEAD BREAK (IF ANYONE CAN PLAY LEAD)] 3. If you should have an accident Next time you’re on the go, Salvation is a-waitin’ In a suitcase down the road; Be sure to pay it forward, Do a favor for yourself, And leave a pair of underwear Somewhere for someone else. CHORUS: Milepost 43 Is a special place for me; It’s the final spot for the clothes I’ve got Next to my anatomy; Should you happen by I hope you’ll think of me— My underwear is waiting there At Milepost 43.
