WHERE’S WAYNE
Words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

Where is Wayne? I didn’t see him at the fair today
Can’t say I’ve ever gone so long without seeing his face
Like everyone, I’m wondering about where’s Wayne
This whole small town’s debating about where’s Wayne

Little Jane says he came to the very last show she played and
Danced great, bought the band’s new record for the highway
But no now, she can’t tell me he’d gone which way
Jane joins the whole small town speculating about where’s Wayne

She said something about him must have changed
I never would have thought this town would shoo him away
Now over the diesel hum of that pickup truck his country music plays
He’s looking for a highway that leads to a doorway

And it’s the eighth of May, humming birds and jays
Garden starts, the farmer’s market, and Jodi’s got a brand new baby
Not one of us has heard from our friend Wayne
And this whole small town’s still debating about where’s Wayne

But I know something inside us has got to change
What kind of small town drives a nice young man away?
He had his radio on each and every working day
One day he turned it off, and now he’s gone

Left us all-a-wondering where is Wayne? Living in a country song out on the highway
Can’t say that without him here I’ve got a good enough reason to stay
And I’m so tired of wondering about where’s Wayne
While this whole small town’s speculating about where’s Wayne

Well I know something inside us has got to change
Before this small town drives this nice young girl away
Now over the diesel hum of my pickup truck his country music plays
Wayne showed me a doorway that leads to a highway
I’m Looking down that highway toward that doorway
