Highway Song

Julian Austin

 

Pulling into Memphis

Hear a song takes me one more mile

This olí truck has done its time

Time to lay these eighteen wheels to rest

Stepping down from the cab

I look into these eyes

My little girl says Dad

Youíre home to stay

I wipe my eyes

And turn my head away

 

This highway

It goes through heaven

It goes through hell

And Iíve burned every mile

I know every fallen angel

I played every sinnerís game

Lord Iíve driven the highways in between

But itís not the one for me

 

There comes a time in everyoneís life

When you gotta decide

Whatís wrong or right

Cause time waits for no one

And before you know it

Life has passed you by, yes it has

Standing in the rain,

Staring at my rig

I hear that highway calling me

I guess some things

You canít set free

 

This highway

It goes through heaven

It goes through hell

And Iíve burned every mile

I know every fallen angel

I played every sinnerís game

Lord Iíve driven the highways in between

On that highway, highway to home

On that highway home
