Route 66 Love Song

You are the attraction
Of all my roadsides.
Woo me with Philly chicken,
Rocket burgers and Grapette.
Perfume me with maple syrup,
Sagebrush, chili, and oranges.
Plant me a garden of Cadillacs.
Waltz me in a meteor crater.
I come to you with a heart
Tender as frozen custard.
Do not send me alone
Into a cavern filled with outlaws.
Carry me over the threshold
Of your stucco wigwam.
Hold me all night
In your truckdriver arms.
