James McMurtry's, "Restless"
The Lyrics:
And the conversation slows
To a stop and I might as well
Be out alone on the highway
Way off in the Utah sage
Waving to the railroad crew
That's when I get restless too

James McMurtry's, "We Can't Make It Here"
The Lyrics:
Now I'm stocking shirts in the Wal-Mart store
Just like the ones we made before
'Cept this one came from Singapore
I guess we can't make it here anymore
In Dayton, Ohio or Portland, Maine
Or a cotton gin out on the great high plains
That's done closed down along with the school
Dayton, Ohio
Portland, Maine
