The dirt road secrets

It’s a turn off the old peculiar road
about three miles out of town and it’s
no place in particular, but I go there
when I’m feeling down.

To a quieter spot I have never been
a gentle sloping bank and grass as
green as I have ever seen,

we all need one fast getaway
a place to hide and sleep
mine’s off the old peculiar road
about three miles out of town.
