Mary Chapin Carpenter

Mary Chapin Carpenter (born February 21, 1958) is an American folk and country music singer, songwriter and musician. Carpenter spent several years singing in Washington, D.C. clubs before signing in the late 1980s with Columbia Records, who marketed her as a country singer. Carpenter's first album, 1987's Hometown Girl, did not produce any singles, although 1989's State of the Heart and 1990's Shooting Straight in the Dark each produced four Top 20 hits on the Billboard country singles charts. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Call the folks, leave a note, 
Lock the doors and windows. 
Pack the truck, here's to luck, 
Here's to how the wind blows.

Got the cash, got the gas, 
Now lose the map and compass. 
Now read the signs, obey the lines, 
Follow all your hunches:
'Cause now it's just the open road, 
One small heart and a great big soul that's driving 

Radio singing low just like a true companion. 
L.A.'s lights wavy bright, they follow like a lantern. 
Then morning comes and desert sun, 
Rises like redemption. 
Another day to make your way from answer, 
Back to question. 
Out here on the open road, 
One small heart and a great big soul that's driving. 

No set of directions, no shortcuts, 
Just some empty soda cans, 
Some cigarette butts. 
The key to traveling light is to 
Not need very much.

Late tonight you see the lights of a 
Thousand stars above you.
And at a roadside stop, 
You call to talk to a voice 
Back home that swears they love you. 
But at the sound of the tone you 
Hang up the phone 
And peel out of that joint. 
You try again, God knows when, 
At least they got the point: 
They lost you to the open road.

One small heart 
And a great big soul 
That's driving, driving 
Out here on the open road 
One small heart and a great big soul that's driving
