I've got my bag slung over my shoulder, and in my sturdiest pair of boots
I walk the highway's gravel shoulder westward towards the setting sun
I got good but still have hunger, a woman she'd turned her face toward mine, and when you feel that kind of hunger, a woman knows to leave you behind
The highway stretches out just like an angel's wings to the line that cuts the land from sky
And god knows I'm a sinner, but I'm not begging for forgiveness this time
You walk these streets like a soldier; a solitary infantry woman
I could have been the helicopter sent to save you, but I'm walking away instead

    General Commentwhat i get out of this song is a slut of a drifter wandering from one woman to the next. it seems to me that he had a girl, saw a new one, felt lust for her, his girl saw what he felt, and now he's left behind to hike. he however doesn't feel so bad about it because the girl he was originally with shares the same story the new girl does.

    General Commentto me, he has a girl. develops an infatuation for another girl, his girl realizes this and leaves him behind. he hadn't seen a girl like the one he discovered before. she doesn't show interest in him, and he understands this and walks away instead, left with no one. left to drift the highway's shoulder.
