I was waitin' for my baby but my baby didn't call
Suddenly there came a stranger knockin' on my door
He told me there had been a wreck out on highway 54.
She was with another man was what the stranger said
I asked if she'd survived it but he slowly shook his head
They were on their way to the other side of town
They tried to beat a freight train, and the freight train ran 'em down
Highway 54 took my love away from me
I knew she didn't want me, but I could not set her free
She was with another like so many times before
She paid the price of runnin' round out on highway 54.
(Yeah, run her down brother)
Many sleepless nights have passed my broken heart since then
The man that she was runnin' with once was my best friend
All the dreams that I had they fill my mind no more
'Cause they died with her that tragic night out on highway 54.
Yeah, she paid the price of cheatin' me out on highway 54.
