I found a love, sweet and young
Out in the big open
Deep in the land of stars that shine
Bright like the heart she wore
I spent a lifetime on that road
She spent a life in town
And I said c'mon, she said right
Let's head for higher ground
Let's go shall we
On through the majesty
Let's go, you'd never know
But this was made for you and me, shall we
We hit the road, the big highway
With a heart full of soul and fire
Making our way through America
In a ford on a two-cent tire
Let's go shall we
On through the majesty

Let's go, you'd never know
But this was made for you and me
We laid down under stars
Under the dead of night
There in a field of wildflowers
Baby we finally made things right
Where no bands of gold or
Diamond rings or wished of well could hold
More than our hearts of good intentions
More than our promise told

Let's go shall we
On through the majesty
Let's go, you'd never know it
But this was made for you and me, shall we

 i gave "godlike" but (s)he's right, lol
thank you for not only playing something other than "not fadeaway", but playing my fav ever of all time bodeans tune. i want to marry and have babies with it!!!
They're from Waukesha (also the home of Les Paul) near Milwaukee, beer, and the polka. Not surprising they would dig into some homeboy culture.
My piano teacher once taught me how to do that radical piano trilling featured at the end of the song. It's not hard, required two hands playing octaves and sounds outrageous. 
No thank you - that was NOT GOOD.  And they have several other much better tunes....how about those?
Stupid guitar riff.  This rates <1
Not crazy about this one. I prefer just about any song on Black and White, although the bad grammar one does get to me after a while, despite the catchy tune.
