"...Skylark, have you seen a valley green with spring
where my heart can go a journeying
over the shadows and the rain
to a blossom covered lane
And in your lonely flight
haven´t you heard the music of the night
faint as a will o´ the wisp
crazy as a loon
sad as a gypsy serenading the moon
Skylark, I don´t know if you can find these things
but my heart is riding on your wings
so if you see them anywhere
won´t you lead me there..."
The Johnny Mercer song doesn´t have anything to do with the car, but I thought I´d write down some of the lyrics anyway. It´s a jazzy tune and it would fit nicely while cruising around in this early sixties coaster. I saw this nice Buick Skylark sitting in a driveway in the Great Falls area of Virginia, for sale by the owner living in the house in the background. Too bad our time in the US is only temporary, otherwise I might have been tempted.
