Lyrics

Little Egypt Road
Words and Music by Diana Di Gioia


I had a ’72 Chevy Impala, it was harvest gold

And on a Saturday night, with you riding beside me
I was king of the road

There were dance halls strung like Christmas lights

All the way to the Canadian border
And on the way back home, if there wasn’t much snow
we’d take the Little Egypt Road

Oh, the Little Egypt Road
White sand that shines in the moonlight
Stitched into this town like the sequins on a wedding dress

Oh, the Little Egypt Road
Don’t let the tall pines fool you
I wanna hold you close when I feel the ghosts
on Little Egypt Road

Well you were a natural dancer and I knew the words to every song
There was rhythm to spare and we hadn’t a care
while the music played on
But when the night grew old and the morning got cold
we’d be shivering in the front seat
And by the time you could feel your feet
we’d be headed up the Little Egypt Road

Oh, the Little Egypt Road
White sand that shines in the moonlight
Stitched into this town like the sequins on a wedding dress
Oh, the Little Egypt Road
Don’t let the tall pines fool you
I wanna hold you close when I feel the ghosts
on Little Egypt Road

My old lovers and I used to kiss beneath these trees

And at 17, we’d make a heat wave out of the deepest freeze
But before I could give my heart I needed to find my soul
And back then, the only thing I truly loved was rock and roll


You see I’ve written you in to all these old memories
Cause I don’t even want to visit the past
if I can’t have you there with me
and if we had grown up together
you would’ve had to break my heart
that’s how we’d get to the finest part,
beyond Little Egypt Road

Oh, the Little Egypt Road
White sand that shines in the moonlight
Stitched into this town like the sequins on a wedding dress
Oh, the Little Egypt Road
Don’t let the tall pines fool you
I wanna hold you close when I feel the ghosts
on Little Egypt Road

I wanna hold you close when I feel the ghosts on Little Egypt Road
