Lyrics

Highway

Oh darlin’ I been away so long
The only way I feel close to you is when I sing my songs
I swear I can almost touch your face and then I break a string
I sure could use some of your tenderness ‘cause I’m runnin’ out of steam

Oh darlin’ this old highway is killin’ me
Maybe it’s because I’m not as young as I used to be
Scenes from old B movies keep replayin' in my dreams
Sure could use a tailwind now ‘cause I’m runnin’ out of steam

I’m tired of chasin' my tail
Endin’ up on a nine inch nail
Endin’ up where I don’t belong
Seems everything I do is wrong
I’m tired of missin’ your smile
It’s gonna be a little while ’til
I’m back in your arms

Sky was dark and angry when I left Tennessee
A thousand miles behind me is where I’d rather be
Burnin’ oil, one headlight gone, chasin’ that centerline
Both me and this old engine we seen better times

I’m tired of chasin' my tail
Endin’ up on a nine inch nail
Endin’ up where I don’t belong
Seems everything I do is wrong
I’m tired of missin’ your smile
It’s gonna be a little while ’til
I’m back in your arms

(B) My radio is playin’ music
From another Em)place and time
Fragrance of your hair is sitting heavy on my mind

I’m tired of chasin' my tail
Endin’ up on a nine inch nail
Endin’ up where I don’t belong
Seems everything I do is wrong
I’m tired of missin’ your smile
It’s gonna be a little while ’til
I’m back in your arms
