Song for Friday...the long way

 
I love back roads and the long way home.
Especially if there's a good song playing ...maybe I play it again, a few times more.
If I have the time and the choice of the highway or the byway,
I'll choose the byway every time.
Less traffic, slower speeds, more interesting scenery, strange and wonderful landmarks.
So here's a beautiful cover of a Tom Waits song done by the lovely Nora Jones.
Have a great weekend and try to take the long way home once in a while.

Well said! Everything looks the same from the highway....I'll take the by-way every time.

Lovely song and photo of the long way home. The long way home is always best and feeds our spirit.

Thank you for sharing!

Love her and it's such a great song. My old boyfriend & I used to road trip to Tom Waits. Oh--and loved your Irland/Italy comment! :)
