Lyrics

CHICORY BLUE
I live on a humped dirt road,
thirty miles from the city as the crow flies
Where the lawns are mowed,
the gardens planted in lines
But come early June the roadsides burst in blue
Oh chicory blue, you make me feel brand new

Oh chicory blue, humble roadside weed
Heavenly blue, you’re all I need
To take me out of my funk,
leave behind a head full of junk
Oh chicory blue, make me humble like you

I don’t have all the answers,
don’t even know what the questions are
Just seems so clear to me
that a dark eye can’t take you far
Sweet little blossom, beauty of the breakdown lane
Sweetheart of the shoulder,
in the rodeo of the double lane

You’re just a happenstance bloom,
growin’ from a little grit
All the traffic running by, they don’t notice you a bit
Serendipity bloom, shining up through the gloom
Soakin up that oil slick water
You’re Mother Nature’s true blue daughter
When I see you I can’t be sad
You’re the blues I wish I had
Oh chicory blue, you make me feel brand new
Oh chicory blue, you make me feel brand new.
