The Lyrics

This song is about race weekend for the NASCAR event at Watkins Glen International in upstate New York.
There's a track up ahead and I'm going
Just as fast as my car can fly
Come on up, come on up to Wine Country
Leave that other stuff behind
I'm looking for another win
We're going up to Watkins Glen
I'll play some race day songs on my banjo
I'll get it while the getting's still good
We're heading to the track on this two-lane highway
To the track up there in the woods
I'm looking for my first win
We're going up to Watkins Glen
You can ponder perpetual motion
Fix your mind 'cause it's almost race day
Always time to relax when I'm racing
Listen to what the drivers say
I'm looking for my first win
And we're going up to Watkins Glen
We're heading out on that old two-lane highway
Come to the campsite just outside Turn 3
There's a track up ahead where I'm racing
It's really fun spending race weekend with me
I'm looking for my win
And we're going up to Watkins Glen
