I'm going to run to Concord, Michigan
where the fire hydrants are all painted red
where it's good to be alive, and it's good to be dead

Jackson County, take these dying bones
it's just an hour to the border if you try
just hold me for a decade so I can die

To all the states of all the northern stars
where the sun never rises up very high
I said that I would be there but I think I lied

All those daisies and dandelions
out in the ragweed purifying the air
blowin' that cradle grave hair
it was as beautiful when you were born as it was beautiful there

Pride of your town and of your high school
you put more stock in living than being cool
with your hands inside your pockets like you've got them fooled

When you are older you should drive away
to the college town down on the interstate
read about things that your heart can't take

come back and visit me from time to time
when you cross into the jackson county line
and think about leaving your home behind
