|Donut and a Dream, A|
|by C. Carson Parks|
|One cup of coffee, waitress, ain't quite enough.
The highway life ain't quite the life it seems.
Tonight i seem to find the roadbed pretty rough.
Give me a donut and a dream.
I count my life in terms of hours down the line.
Leaving some women just gets harder all the time.
I've tried to live one roadside diner at a time.
Just pour it black, i don't take cream.
Life must be something more than one cup for a dime.
And tonight i need a donut and a dream.
I think she likes me and i ought to hang around
Then i get to thinking i should try another town.
One cup of coffee, waitress, ain't quite enough
Tonight i need a donut and a dream.
