I've seen it all, but now I wanna see your face.
Did I change the oil?
Did I check the tires?
I've been high and low,
I've been from sea to shining sea.
The Illinois prairie,
the Ontario wind,
Highway Eleven to the
was written on a drive to Illinois to meet up with Tracey Moushon who does
a lot of bookings for me now. It would of been late summer/early
fall 2001. I don't know what happened with this one, but I started
getting this melody rolling around in my heard or maybe it was a rhythm
kind of thing. I didn't want to forget it, so I started calling myself
and singing it on my voice mail. Then, once you get something going
around in your head, you don't want to forget certain parts, because I
couldn't sing the whole song on my voice mail. So then the whole
drive, I keep singing the whole song over and over again. If someone
else would of been in there they would of probably jumped out. I
got to Illinois, put the guitar cords behind it. It too has evolved
a good bit as we worked on it. I was feeling, that in my drives,
I've gone basically everywhere, further than my dreams had permitted me
to even venture when I was 15 or whatever. It is amazing but there
is so much more. So I have seen it all, but now I want to see
you Lord. I've been everywhere, but now I want to be with you Lord.
