It was a Tuesday night when I left La Pine
The sky was on fire like velvet and wine
I picked them up for a ride
The Chad and Josiah
The one started taking the other was quiet
I just stared out the window
Of my chartreuse Ford Pinto
The Chad kept on talking
Would we get there in time?
On a Tuesday night
We veered left towards the mountains
Where the trees are like giants
The Chad finally fell silent

On the other side of the reservoir
We stopped for some smokes at a Mill City drug store
Because Detroit Lake was a misnomer
So we dealt with some business
Before moving right along

On a Tuesday night we drove on towards the ocean
Where a 30 ft. Cutter would be sailing by sunrise
Out towards the horizon
At least that was the plan
And we thought it a good one
We thought it was grand
On a Tuesday night I looked back at Josiah
And his head started shaking
When we first head the sirens
The Chad lit up another
I put my foot to the floor
Topped her out around 100mph
I said a prayer to the Lord

And he heard my words and reached down his hand
And he carried that Ford Pinto to the Promised Land
And we stood there before him
On streets paved with gold
And the skies were periwinkle and the rivers ran free and cold
