about

I probably spend too much daydreaming about moving to the country, or some idyllic small town, where the pace of life is slower, you’d get to know your neighbors, and you can see the Milky Way at night. But I still do anyways...

lyrics

What I’m Lookin’ For
By Dan Weber © 2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP)

When the road home hits the county line, the sign says ‘Pavement Ends’
And that’s where the country begins
And where work is just a job I do; the world stops keepin’ score
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For

In a 1920’s town, that the freeway left behind
Where your neighbor’s know your business, but they don’t pay it any mind
And there’s no key for the mailbox, and no need to lock your doors
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For

Chorus:
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For, a little view right there, off of our front porch
With a welcome mat for old friends, to be strangers no more
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For

Where the high school kids still spray paint the town’s old water tower
While the ‘decent folks’ were sleeping, at that hour
But they are on a first-name basis, down at the hardware store
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For

And on the Fourth of July, they’ll still have a big parade
Where the rodeo queen, rides by and waves
But now the old vets march in Cadillac’s, in their pressed uniforms
And that’s What I’m Lookin’ For

See I’m lookin’ for the country that this country left behind
Where they still say ‘Sir’ and ‘Maam’, because it’s polite
Where a handshake is a promise, and your word means even more
And that’s What I’m Lookin’ For, that’s What I’m Lookin’ For...

So it does my heart some good, once I cross that county line
It feels like, I just left the world behind
And someday when I find you, I won’t ever ask for more
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For

Chorus:
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For, a little view right there, off of our front porch
With an old friend to tell stories, we’ve told a million times before
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For

Chorus:
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For, a little view right there, off of our front porch
And we could watch the stars shine, like they’ve never done before
That’s What I’m Lookin’ For, That’s What I’m….Lookin’ For
