"Drivin' My Life Away" as written by Eddie T Rabbitt, Even Stevens and David E Malloy....
Well the midnight headlights blind you on a rainy night
Steep grade up ahead, slow me down, makin' no time,
But I got to keep rollin'
Those windshield wipers slappin' out a tempo,
Keepin' perfect rhythm with the song on the radio,
But I got to keep rollin'

Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a better way for me
Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a sunny day

Well the truck stop cutie comin' on to me,
Tried to talk me into a ride
Said I wouldn't be sorry
But she was just a baby
Hey, waitress, pour me another cup of coffee,
Pop it down, jack me up, shoot me out, flyin' down the highway,
Lookin' for the mornin'

Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a better way for me
Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a sunny day

Well the midnight headlights blind you on a rainy night
Steep grade up ahead, slow me down, makin' no time,
But I got to keep rollin'
Those windshield wipers slappin' out a tempo,
Keepin' perfect rhythm with the song on the radio,
But I got to keep rollin'

Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a better way for me
Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a sunny day

Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a better way for me
Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a sunny day, yeah

Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a better way for me

    General CommentI think this song is about a truck driver trying to hit it big.
    "steep greade up ahead, slow me down, makin' no time" refers to gearing down going down hills and that he is late on schedule.
    "I'm driving my life away, looking for a better way, for me" means that he's driven for a long time, and is trying to get out of the business and find a better job, more than likely closer to home.
    The Truck Stop Cutie is a "Lot Lizard" or being blunt, a truck stop whore.
    I don't know just my thoughts.

    General CommentI initially thought it said "The waitress pawned me another cup of coffee", which would almost make sense, but "pour" works too.

    Good song all around.
