Andrew Revkin - Songwriter in Garrison, New York
My '97 @BluebirdCafeTN performance of "Western Sky." (@WPLN recording) He drove out, to the western sky, Didn’t know where. Didn’t know why. He just went. Just had to go. Didn’t drive fast. Didn’t drive slow. All he knew was life was sad. Work was hard. Marriage was bad. All he could do was hit the road. Maybe out west, he could shed his load… So he drove out, to the western sky. Didn’t know where. Didn’t know why. He just went. Just had to go. Didn’t drive fast. Didn’t drive slow. Instrumental verse. Got out West. Built a brand new life. Got a new car. Got a new wife. Things are good. Everything’s fine. Memories fade. History’s blind. Still sometimes, when he stirs at night, Remembers when things were not all right. In his dreams, sun in western skies. But in a storm back east, the lightning flies. So he drove out, to the western sky. Didn’t know where. Didn’t know why. He just went. Just had to go. Didn’t drive fast. Didn’t drive slow.
