The flat tire

Driving down the road
Our new trailer in tow
On a hot summer day
With a long way to go

When all of the sudden
The car started shaking
We stopped at the exit
The tire was flaking

A tow truck came
To change the bad tire
That had fallen apart
But didn’t catch fire

We lost a few hours
To buy a new spare
In a quaint little town
I liked being there

This inconvenience
Allowed me to see
A small Southern town
Peaceful and carefree
