1980
For the duke and travis mcgee
Travis mcgee's still in cedar key
That's what ol' john macdonald said
My rendezvous's so long overdue
With all of the things I've sung and I've read
They still apply to me
They all make sense in time

Chorus:
But now I'm incommunicado
Drivin' by myself down the road with a hole in it
Songs with no vibrato
Takin' the long way home

Now on the day that john wayne died
I found myself on the continental divide
Tell me where do I go from here
Think I'll ride into leadville and have a few beers
I think of "red river" or "liberty valance"
Can't believe the old man's gone

Chorus:
But now he's incommunicado
Leavin' such a hole in a world that believed
That a life with such bravado
Was takin' the right way home

So when I finished that last line
I put the book by itself on the shelf with my heart in it
Never wastin' time takin' the right way home
I know I'm never wastin' time findin' the right way home

Chorus:
Still I am incommunicado
Livin' next door to a leg with a pin in it
Life with such bravado
Is takin' the right way home

Tryin' to make it
Tryin' to fake it
Tryin' to take it home

Tryin' to make it
Tryin' to fake it
Tryin' to take it home

I know i'm...
Tryin' to make it
Sometimes I fake it
Tryin' to take it home

All I'm doing is...
Tryin' to make it
Tryin' to fake it
Tryin' to take it home

But now I'm incommunicado...
