Amber Alert

Lucky Mud
Michael and Maggie McKinney


He's a desperate man, in desperate times

His young son in the back seat

Now he's crossed the line

God damn the people trying to rule his life

He used to have a good job

Used to have a wife

If he can make it to Oklahoma

Maybe he can set things right

But there's an Amber Alert

On the airwaves tonight


So many wrong turns in these crooked days

So easy to make mistakes,

And lose your way

Now he has his baby boy

He has a second chance

Time to leave the booze behind

And be the kind of man

His boy can rely on

Maybe he can set things right

But there's an Amber Alert

On the airwaves tonight


82 Impala

Out of state plates

Almost like a beacon on the Interstate

Primer-grey hood

Citation-yellow doors

Money for some fast food

But not much more

But back in Oklahoma

He can find a job

With a little bit of luck

A little help from God

Set him on the right track

And make things right

Damn that Amber Alert

On his radio tonight


Pulls over to the roadside

Sees his son's eyes

Tears rolling down his cheeks

Spilling from his eyes

Staring back at Daddy

Through the mirror in the dark

Eases to a stop

And he puts the car in park

First call he makes

Is the hardest of the two

Linda screams into the phone

Lord, what did you do?

The second one was easy

When he called the cops

Told them where to find them

At the next rest stop

Pulls back on the road

Time to do what's right

Amber Alert on the airwaves tonight

The morning light turns amber

On the highway tonight
