In the vein of "Midnight Train To Georgia
" (which was originally a Country song), "Cigarettes & Truckstops" finds Ortega singing about traveling a great distance to be with the man she loves. It's not practical, but when everything you see brings up cherished memories, it's time to get on the bus.
In our interview with Lindi Ortega
, she explained that this song is not about heartbreak, describing it as "a song of nostalgia." Said Lindi: "It's actually more of a love song than anything else."
