Streak of lightning coming down the highway
turn around and watch it go
switch on the lights
put on the highbeams
better find a preacher on the radio

I like to drive at 105
its just how fast i got to go
i got the gears and i got the motor
aint no reason to go slower
and i like the speed i like the motion
i like the rockin machine
i like to drive at 105
better hurry up if you wanna catch me

neon sign flashin by like something in your eye
Elvis on the radio almost makes you cry
falshing lights in the rearview you know
payin many mile step on the gas pull out to pass and leave em far be hind

I like to drive at 105
its just how fast i got to go
i got the gears and i got the motor
aint no reason to go slower
and i like the speed i like the motion
i like the rockin machine
i like to drive at 105
better hurry up if you wanna catch me

you shouldnt ought to done it honey you shouldnt ought to run around
but two cant be on the highway darlin and i'M THE ONE THATS OUT THERE NOW

and i like the speed i like the motion i like the rockin machine i like to drive at 105 better hurry up if you wanna catch mebetter hurry up if you wanna catch me

    General CommentI agree. He can be funny, but he also has some good serious stuff. He sounds just as natural either way, which I think is a mark of a talented songwriter (Guy Clark and Robert Earl Keen are like that, too).

    General CommentHe's simply spectacular. The Bellows Fall show this year was phenomenal.
