lyrics

I rode my thumb when I was young to see what I could see
your story’s yours out on the road I never felt so free
head out for the Interstate try and flag one down
the hardest part of every trip is getting out of town
Cadillacs and Cherokees and White Freightliners too
flash a smile and stand up straight and hope one stops for you

when you’re out on the drag with your over night bag
and no headlights as far as you can see
watch those palm trees sway as the night time turns to day
chickenhawks and jesus freaks and no one rides for free

a roughneck bound for Lafayette to me for a ride
we speed rapped for a thousand miles until his tranny died
then its son do you know Jesus Christ and have you seen the light
or do you wake up full of fear on the darkest side of night
said I never missed a Sunday Mass till the day turned eighteen
jesus told me we were square if you know what I mean

it’s easy to get burned
too scared to close your eyes
the money spent the money earned
the simple truth the complicated lies

the tinted window midnight creeps they hit the shoulder slow
put your bag in back slide in front and down the road you go
the parking lots the motel rooms the truck stop shower stalls
I had my fun I’m going home before the next night falls
when you’re young you don’t hear anyone when you’re old no one hears you
memories flash and stories fade leave you wondering what was true
