lyrics

Some bus pulled on out of a mid-western highway
Losing a race with the dawn
All of the riders were sleeping
All of the riders but one

And he had his face pressed on up to the window
Catching the warmth from the sun
He gazed over wheat fields and cornfields
And raised up his hand to his head as he thought

Driver Driver – I am but a rider
I put my only life in your hands
Driver Driver – I am but a rider
And here on this bus
You’re the god of all of us
And I honestly hope you are kind

There sat beside him a younger girl
With a soft and a pendulous breast
And a cross on a chain and a dream on her lips
Of a more righteous place in the West

There sat behind him an older man
Dressed up in an old baseball hat
And a list in his shirt of the homeruns he’d hit
And a full color picture of him up at bat

Driver Driver – I am but a rider
I put my only life in your hands
Driver Driver – I am but a rider
And here on this bus
You’re the god of all of us
And I honestly hope you are kind

The time of the year it was springtime
The time of the day it was early
The years of the rider were twenty and eight
As he turned to the lady beside him and he said to her

Lady I know I’m a stranger
Lady I don’t mean you no harm
But I will write you a rhyme if you’ll look in my eye
Tell me where we are going and what we will find

Driver Driver – I am but a rider
I put my only life in your hands
Driver Driver – I am but a rider
And here on this bus
You’re the god of all of us
And I honestly hope that you are kind

about

Delmore Recording Society Nashville, Tennessee

Delmore Recording Society exists to expose singular artists that don’t quite fit in to the world. The pursuit and discovery of lost tapes is another side of that mission.

We strive to bring something of value into the world…music that might enhance our appreciation of an artist that was under recorded, or whose recordings were never released due to some vagary of the business.
