across america

We went,

Across the green hills of Alabama

to a breakfast in Birmingham,

On the red roads of Mississippi

saw the house of Elvis in Tupelo,

Skirted the corner of Tenessee

and over the river at Memphis,

Through the open fields of Arkansas

on 412 until route 63 north,

Stayed with old friends in Missouri

saw a ditch of flowers outside the capitol,

Then into Tulsa and Oklahoma City

walked Bricktown and the hanging gardens,

By the windmills in the fields of Texas

standing tall like desert clocks,

Across the chest of New Mexico

felt three drops of rain in Encino,

Into Arizona in Navajo country

and down the mountain into Phoenix,

Our new home,

Breakfast with Holly near Birmingham, Alabama

We went from Oklahoma City all the way to Phoenix, cutting our trip from 4 days down to 3 days.
