That old highway down to Memphis late last night was a lonely time to kill
We just drove through Little Rock and you've only been on my mind since Nashville
As I lay my head down on the bed in the back I hear that turbo diesel whine
In my dreams you're kissing me as we cross the Texas line

We've got a show tonight in Dallas I think we hit the stage around midnight
I sure hope the band is cooking I want to leave those Texans feeling right
Then we head out for the West Coast they say that it's the best coast
But I don't think that's true but tonight it doesn't matter much
All I ever think about is you

CHORUS

So hold on darling don't let this dream die
I'm gonna love you long after all the oceans turn dry
With my heart in my hand I'll be standing at your door
Your traveling man will never leave you any more
Your traveling man has come to take you away

L.A. was a bust they never had much time for us
I guess they were busy with the O.J. show
I don't think too much about it now
Won't be long before we're back in the land of the snow
We've got two nights in San Francisco
Then it's off to Colorado; it's a good thing I was born to roam
It was colder up in Boulder but we got the warmest shoulder
Made these blues boys feel at home

Then its north by northwest to the land I know the best
North of the 49
Soon I'll be heading in your direction
Won't be long before you're in these arms of mine

CHORUS

That old highway down to Memphis late last night was a lonely time to kill
We just drove through Little Rock and you've only been on my mind since Nashville
Repeat last two lines
