[MARK: "Texas was a letter to Hamlet, my crazy dog; it didn't' make much sense so Grant suggested a different rhythm, but I couldn't do it so Grant sang the first part. I kept the break and then we came together in the end. I don't think the part that Grant sings is about my dog even though I think he liked Hamlet. Hamlet was never in Texas although I think he would have liked it because they have a lot in common."
GRANT: "Didn't know that was ever about Hamlet, but the hand I lent to finishing that song seems to work just the same. From where I sit right now, on my front porch -- Kansas, mid-June, that feels like the most vital song on the record. It's an important song for Mark and me together and alone -- and I did like Hamlet."]

Do you remember driving up in Utah
Stack of tapes to keep us listening
Driving east into the rising sun
Snow kept coming hard as ever
And even though I've never told you
Those were the best days that I've ever known
I know where the path should go
It may be far, but at least it's home
How it feels, I just don't know
I said, I know where the path should go
It may be far, but at least it's home
How it feels, I just don't know
I'm already set to go

Do you remember driving up in Utah
Stack of tapes to keep us listening
Driving east into the rising sun
Snow came down as hard as ever
And even though I've never told you
Those were the best days that I've ever known
I know where the path should go
It may be far, but at least it's home
How it feels, I just don't know
I said, I know where the path should go
It may be far, but at least it's home
How it feels I just don't know
I'm already set to go
I said, I'm already set to go
To get on up and get on out to Texas

Tell everybody I said "Hey"
Would you make sure my dog's bowl is kept full
It seems like it's been a long time
It feels like it's been a while
I wouldn't know, these days just roll on by
Days just roll on, they just go on by
Like these Texas roads

Do you remember driving all night long?
They just go on by
Do you remember?
These roads we're on
Do you remember driving all night long?
I didn't know you were there
Do you remember?
Take care
Do you remember driving all night long?
I hope to see you soon
I hope to be there soon
Do you remember?
