Written by John Lyons

This song is about a stretch of road that I used to frequently drive in Southwest Michigan between Glenn and South Haven. If you lived in the area, this song just might hit home with you.


Windows down, tunes cranked up
Flick my cigarette into the wind, I drink from my cup
There’s a curve ahead, no time to think
I shift down into overdrive and my eyes don’t blink

Crusin’, Crusin’ Bluestar Highway

Now I’m comin’ up on Deadman’s Curve
Deer in my sight it’s fight or flight and I had to swerve
I see one headlight comin' right at me
So I make my move in the nick of time I barely missed a tree

Crusin’, Crusin’ Bluestar Highway
