From the recording Rain Fallin' Down
Proof that there is no shame in lame song titles if the song works.
Rain falling down and I feel a little frown,
& I donâ€™t know why, I canâ€™t fly away today.... today,
Well I made a deal for what I do
So where I go I can never lose, my old highway....
18 wheels and a load of freight
Roll all night down the interstate, I use...I use
And when Iâ€™m tired I drive on through
Think about the times I use to have.... with you,
All my lifeâ€™s a sunny day, driving down the old highway,
Thinking of the places that Iâ€™ve seen
Across the river through the woods
Along the valleys Iâ€™ve felt good
Through the night and day Iâ€™ll always roam...
And I guess I choose the highway for my home
I think I know this road by heart,
Every highway sign, and mileage mark pass by.... by & by.....
I drive ahead, but look behind,
Hear the gears up the hill I climb... whine,
Distant lights of a truck cafe
Thatâ€™s never closed a single day I know...yea I know,
â€˜Cause I stop on in when Iâ€™m passing by
Grab a meal in the day or night, to go........ yea you know.........[chorus]
In the winterâ€™s chill or the summerâ€™s heat
This rig I drive never missed a beat so far.... so far,
The miles go by as I roll along,
The motorâ€™s noise is the only song I hear... out here,
I drop my load at the highwayâ€™s end
Collect my pay and once again Iâ€™m gone, Iâ€™m gone
Most of what I know I need
I get from driving down the road for free...you see......
Rain coming down and I feel a little frown,
& I donâ€™t know why I canâ€™t fly away today........yea today....
