Subject: Lyr Add: WILLIN' (The Byrds)
I've been warped by the rain, driven by the snow
I'm drunk and dirty, don't you know
And I'm still, willin'

Out on the road late last night
I'd see my pretty Alice in every headlight
Alice, Dallas Alice

And I've been from Tucson to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonopah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign
I'll be willin', to be movin'

Tucumcari (New Mexico) and Tehapachi (California) both lie on the former classic Route 66.
Tucson (Arizona) lies on I-19 going south to the Mexican border. It has kilometer posts and speed limits in kph and mph.
Tonopah (Nevada), midway between Las Vegas and Reno, stands at the junction of R6 and R95.
