Chris Maughan I was not expecting a tasty overdriven guitar solo in the last minute of this song. Great job delivering on acoustic Neil & Crazy Horse Neil in a single performance!

about

One of the "lost songs" of Neil Young's exemplary songwriting career - Neil finally recorded a version in 1996 for the Broken Arrow album, but it didn't make it to the final release. I have always loved this song - it's simple, dark, and reminds me of the times when musicians could hit the road and actually play gigs without endangering the entire audience. Ah, simpler times. It also reminds me of home, which seems to be the ultimate destination of any trip.

Here is my interpretation of Neil Young's song... hope you dig it.

lyrics

Interstate

Children are laughing
in the sun
I count the voices
one by one
But I'm not there
to share the fun
I'm out on the interstate
I can hear
a soft voice calling
Calling me
to bring my guitar home.

I'm happy singing
in a crowd
The lights are bright,
the music's loud
I like to look
in every face
But out on the interstate
I can hear
a soft voice calling
Calling me
to bring my guitar home.

Out in the dusty
desert wind
The fox goes looking
for a friend
She sees a light
around the bend
I'm out on the interstate
I can hear
a soft voice calling
Calling me
to bring my guitar home.
