"Hiway Nights" as written by and Russell/niven/kendall....
I know the spell you're under
I know it so well
How far? Well you may wonder
No way to tell

I've traveled miles from nowhere
Where sons never rise
Lookin' to find a meaning
Now open your eyes

Yeah
Been this way so long
Tomorrow's gone

See if the rhyme has reason
Chasing the wind
Look for a change of season
Somewhere to begin

Yeah
The freeway is my song

Now hiway nights
Red tail lights
Lead my love light love
Hiway nights
Freeway sights
To this eagle I belong
It rolls me on

How can I bring you lovin'
Out of the night
Is it a dream
To fade in the light

Yeah
The freeway is my song

Hiway nights
Red tail light
Lead my love light on
Hiway lights
Freeway sights
To this eagle I belong

Baby won't you start your motor
Baby won't you turn it over
Baby won't you drive me
Drive me through the night

    My InterpretationI Love this song! It has an urgent tempo as if one is in a hurry. Not sure here, but I think it's about the lonely life of being a truck driver. More than anything he just wants to get home to his Love. He seems to be tortured on the road by the lights and the sights that confine him to the eagle he belongs (his truck) which rolls him on his way.. but he is stuck in the 'time away' instead of where his heart is. I sense he has a fear that he is losing precious time because she longs to be with him too, but psychological time is a slow death on the road. Until reunion, the Freeway is my song and it leads my love light on!
