I also had lunch in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, but I couldn’t come up with a song for that one…



Here's a musical itinerary of my recent road trip starting from LA. 




Made it out to Needles...


 








Stood on a corner in Winslow, Arizona (where Jackson Browne's truck breaking down is still a big deal)...

 


Drove down Route 66...
 


 


I would have headed back the same way, but a winter storm blew into Flagstaff so I came back by way of the low desert.

Down Tucson way there's a small cafeWhere they play a little cowboy tune.And the guitar picker was a friend of mineBy the name of Randy Boone.
 
Yea, Randy played her a sweet love songAnd Della got a fire in her eyeThe Dealer had a knife and the dog had a gunand the cat had a shot of Rye.




And passed through Phoenix, probably the only overlap in the catalogs of Glen Campbell and Isaac Hayes.
 


Warning: this is the long one.
