Road Songs

YouTube - Bob Seger - Turn The Page

YouTube - Metallica - Turn The Page

Turn The Page

On a long and lonesome highway
east of Omaha
You can listen to the engine
moanin' out his one note song
You can think about the woman
or the girl you knew the night before
But your thoughts will soon be wandering
the way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours
and there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin',
you just wish the trip was through

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go

Well you walk into a restaurant,
strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you
as you're shakin' off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you

but you just want to explode
Most times you can't hear 'em talk,
other times you can
All the same old cliches,
"Is that a woman or a man?"
And you always seem outnumbered,
you don't dare make a stand

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page

Out there in the spotlight
you're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy
you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body
like the music that you play
Later in the evening
as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers
ringin' in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarette,
rememberin' what she said

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
There I go

A Little Past Little Rock

YouTube - Lee Ann Womack - A Little Past Little Rock
I had to leave my life in Dallas
That town will always be you
In every crowd, on every corner
In every face I'd see you
So with nothin' more than a tank of gas
I drove away without lookin' back
And I guess that's how I got where I am
Goin' anywhere as fast as I can

And I'm a little past Little Rock
Further down the line
Too soon to know what's up ahead
Too late to change my mind
I gotta keep my heart out of this and both hands on the wheel
I'm learnin' more with every mile just how leaving feels
It's a lonely stretch of blacktop out into the blue
Don't know where I'll go or what I'll do
I'm a little past Little Rock
But a long way from over you

These headlights on the highway
Disappear into the dark
And if I could have it my way
I'd go back to where you are
Oh, but I can't turn this thing around
And nothing short of breaking down
Is gonna get me off this road I'm on
Oh, and I'm still a far cry from gone

And I'm a little past Little Rock
Further down the line
Too soon to know what's up ahead
Too late to change my mind
I gotta keep my heart out of this and both hands on the wheel
I'm learnin' more with every mile just how leaving feels
It's a lonely stretch of blacktop out into the blue
Don't know where I'll go or what I'll do
I'm a little past Little Rock
But a long way from over you

Run

YouTube - Run - George Strait
If theres a plane or a bus leaving dallas
I hope youre on it
If theres a train moving fast down the tracks
I hope you caught it

Cause I swear out there aint where you ought to be
So catch a ride, catch a cab
Dont you know I miss you bad
But dont you walk to me

Baby run, cut a path across the blue skies
Straight in a straight line
You cant get here fast enough

Find a truck and fire it up
Lean on the gas and off the clutch
Leave dallas in the dust
I need you in a rush
So baby run

If you aint got a suit case
Get a box or an old brown paper sack
And pack it light or pack it heavy
Take a truck, take a chevy
Baby just come back

Theres a shortcut to the highway out of town
Why dont you take it
Dont let that speed limit slow you down
Go on and break it

Baby run, cut a path across the blue skies
Straight in a straight line
You cant get here fast enough

Find a truck and fire it up
Lean on the gas and off the clutch
Leave dallas in the dust
I need you in a rush
So baby run

Baby run
Oh baby run
Baby run

Ole '55 Eagles/Tom Waits

Well my time went so quickly, I went lickety-splickly out to my old '55
As I drove away slowly, feeling so holy, God knows, I was feeling alive.

Now the sun's coming up, I'm riding with Lady Luck, freeway cars and trucks,
Stars beginning to fade, and I lead the parade
Just a-wishing I'd stayed a little longer,
Oh, Lord, let me tell you that the feeling's getting stronger.

And it's six in the morning, gave me no warning; I had to be on my way.
Well there's trucks all a-passing me, and the lights are all flashing,
I'm on my way home from your place.

And now the sun's coming up, I'm riding with Lady Luck, freeway cars and trucks,
Stars beginning to fade, and I lead the parade
Just a-wishing I'd stayed a little longer,
Oh, Lord, let me tell you that the feeling's getting stronger.

And my time went so quickly, I went lickety-splickly out to my old '55
As I pulled away slowly, feeling so holy, God knows, I was feeling alive.

Now the sun's coming up, I'm riding with Lady Luck,
Freeway cars and trucks, freeway cars and trucks, freeway cars and trucks...

Runnin' Down A Dream

YouTube - Tom Petty - Running Down A Dream
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin
The trees went by, me and Del were singin
Little runaway, I was flyin

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Im runnin' down a dream

I felt so good, like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah runnin down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Im runnin down a dream

I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin up whatever is mine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin wherever it leads
Im runnin' down a dream

Hit the road jack
Life is a highway
Fast Car
I get around
In my car
Roll on down the highway
Ventura Highway
Asleep at the wheel
Sweet Hitch Hiker
Rockin' down the highway
Takin' it to the street
Life in the Fast Lane
Seven Bridges Road
Baby you can drive my car
Crosstown Traffic
On the road again
Long lonesome highway
Little red corvette
Driving my life away
Six days on the road
Born to run
Hot Rod Lincoln
Thunder Road
Highway star
Joe's garage

Not a road song but for some reason I thought of this.

Baby we can talk all night
But that aint getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
Theres nothing left inside of here
And maybe you can cry all night
But thatll never change the way that I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldnt make me leave here

I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
Im tired of words and Im too hoarse to shout
But youve been cold to me so long
Im crying icicles instead of tears

And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you
I need you
But -- there aint no way Im ever gonna love you
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad

Youll never find your gold on a sandy beach
Youll never drill for oil on a city street
I know youre looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there aint no coupe de ville hiding at the bottom of a cracker jack box

I cant lie
I cant tell you that Im something Im not
No matter how I try
Ill never be able
To give you something
Something that I just havent got

Theres only one girl that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know Ill never get her out of my heart
She never loved me back
Ooh I know
I remember how she left me on a stormy night
She kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away

And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
I want you
I need you
But there aint no way Im ever gonna love you
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad
I want you
I need you
But there aint no way Im ever gonna love you
Now dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad
Dont be sad
cause two out of three aint bad

Baby we can talk all night
But that aint getting us nowhere

"Behind the Wheel"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMdG1x48AnY

Sweet little girl
I prefer you behind the wheel
And me the passenger.
Drive, I'm yours to keep.
Do what you want,
I'm going cheap
Tonight
You're behind the wheel, tonight.
