Little girl disappeared and gone From the rural route Seven days missing something's wrong On the rural route Amber alert all over the nation From the rural route Two lane highway full of cops On the rural route Rural route
Police dogs howl from wire cages On the rural route Last seen leavin' a trailer On the rural route Just walkin' home alone On the rural route Newspaper prints her fifth grade picture From the rural route Rural route
Air stinks of crystal meth On the rural route Some one predicts a young girl's death On the rural route Father refuses to answer any questions From the rural route The man he runs around with comes up missing Off the rural route Rural route
Twenty miles away by a lake On the rural route Girl's body's found, it's been raped By the rural route Twenty-eight year old friend of the father Arrested on the rural route Father traded his daughter for favors On the rural route Rural route Rural route
Here's my prayer loud and clear From the rural route Forgive us Lord, get us out of here Off this rural route Oh merciful Father, show us the will Here on the rural route Give us the mercy for the drug-addicted And the mentally ill On the rural route

John Lennon wrote "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" about Richard Cooke, a hunter he met at the Maharishi's camp in India. Cooke hasn't shot anything since the camp, except with his camera - he became a freelance photographer for National Geographic.
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
