lyrics

Baby grab your things and let's go for a ride
We'll get out of this town, see the countryside
Don’tcha bother get the map, we'll just a-follow the lines
Dotted white, double yellow, hell I don't mind
With our wings out the windows we'll be flyin’ free
Hands floatin' through the air just a-ridin' the breeze, oh
Singin' songs at the top of our lungs, so tell me now baby don't it sound like fun?
Turn the radio dial to your favorite station
How 'bout we just make some good old conversation
Cause you and I could talk until the tank run dry
Whatcha waitin' for? let's get in the car and drive

Headed down to the show in a car full of friends
Or up to Port Austin with the family again
This road we're on seems to have no end
Just another stretch of highway comin' 'round the bend
We've got guessing games and books on tape
Tryna see a car from every state, oh
Whatever we can do to pass the time away
Ain't no need to hurry cause we've got all day
Well there's somethin' 'bout driving I just can't explain
'Neath the big blue sky or through the pouring rain
Floatin' down the river of a highway lane
Watch the world go by while I'm sittin' here just the same

Late at night lookin' in my mirror
I see everybody's sleepin, I'm the only one here
Just me and my high beams makin' our way
Through the dark of night in a light summer rain
It's been fourteen hours out on this road
And there's a warm bed waitin' there when I get home
But I'm feelin' fine, I'm feelin' strong
And baby that there sign says there's another hundred miles to go
Miles to go...
