Walking down Silver Street, feeling the summers heat
rise, as the day begins, velvet upon my skin.
Man at the corner store turning the key once more;
beggar with one good eye, watching the world go by…

Make mine a miracle, something incredible,
deep and indelible, down in my soul.
Make mine a miracle, all unforgettable,
one more for the road.

Cadillac cruising by, bright as the summers sky,
deep muddy river flows, blues on the radios.
Girl by the wishing well, health is her holy grail,
sunlight on pony tail… splash of the coin that fell.

Make mine a miracle, something incredible,
deep and indelible, down in my soul.
Make mine a miracle, all unforgettable,
one more for the road.

Dog on the dusty street hides from the halfway heat,
man in a rocking chair, he ain't going anywhere,
Watching the church bells ring, hearing the people sing,
dressed in their Sunday best,
all praying that they'll be blessed.
Make mine a miracle, something incredible,
deep and indelible, down in my soul.
Make mine a miracle, all unforgettable,
one more for the road.

Man in the all night bar; plays on his old guitar…
bleeds every word he sings, seeking that seventh string…
After they've all gone home, he slips to the bar alone,
barman says "hey, what's yours?",…
and, after a little pause…………

Make mine a miracle, something incredible,
deep and indelible, down in my soul.
Make mine a miracle, all unforgettable,
one more for the road.
