CD Notes:
Lyrics & Music: Bill Caddick and Pete Bond, Rough Music) Arranged by: Aengus Finnan, David Rogers, Trevor Mills
This one is on here for Peter Gzowski and the thousands of lives he touched through the radio in cars, restaurants, bedrooms, basement workshops, and at kitchen sinks across the country. And profound thanks to the CBC and North American Folk DJs who keep the music that matters on the air.


I've been talking at the man on the radio
Thought I know he can't hear a word that I say
No he keeps right on talking telling me the time
And the weather and the wavelengths and his disc of the day

He understands the way that I feel
One hand on the radio, one on the wheel

There's no car lights in the mirror only starlights above
All the truck driving heroes have called it a day
Just the whine of the wheels as they eat up the miles
And the raindrops on the window and the night owl DJ

Don't you tell me there's a wreck on the road ahead
Don't you tell me that the rain's going to turn into snow
Keep me going, stop me thinking, fill up my mind
For without you on the airwaves the night goes so slow

Guess I'll pull in for a coffee call her up on the phone
And across the dark hours she'll float down the line
Saying don't drive if you're tired I miss you too
So keep it coming Mr. DJ, help me home one more time
