Pull the braid from your hair, so it falls down your back
I just passed Spartanburg, cigarettes on the dash
Will you wait on the swing, in the front of the house?
Or the steps of the porch in a white cotton blouse?

Thousand miles that I drove, thirty more left to go
Will you cry when you wake, when you see me today?
Is your father at home? Does he know where I’ve been?
He don’t like me because I remind you of him
Let’s just drive to the point, watch the sky lose the light
I’ve been gone far too long not to kiss you tonight

Thousand miles that I drove, thirty more left to go
Will you cry when you wake, when you see me today?

Na na na
Na na na
Na na na
Na na na
Na na na
Na na na

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful. the meaning is obvious, the speaker driving so long just to reach his lover, and only 30 miles left from over a thousand. but the emotion in it is daunting, the anticipation before seeing someone you love after being away so long. simply a beautiful song.
