Grateful DeadAmerican Beauty

This one’s like an old friend telling you stories at a truckstop, making you feel all comfortable and nostalgic among strangers of the road. Running from the law never felt so good, sugar never tasted so sweet, the American rose was never so beautiful. Cross-country travel is a metaphor for life’s journey–whether it’s that dark highway you must travel alone or you just truckin’ along. In either case, it’s a long, strange trip.
