Gonna pass by the roadside graves
Ignore the crosses and the flames
Because(?) this drive watch the scenery change
All the mountains they all look the same
It's like stores on an east coast highway

But tonight those graves are mine
Take 'em with me to count the miles
Between lovers and small towns I fled
It's hard to think when you're driving fast

And the bartender is dancing with my friend
Cowboy in the corner, he's gettin' jealous
She's a fine girl
Only cursed with three kids
A dead husband and another on the way

Yea, me with my head on the bar
My eyes fixed on her sister-in-law
She says "15 will get you 20 in Selena, Utah.
Yea 15 will get you 20 in Selena, Utah."

Now but tonight that girl is mine
Take her with me to count the miles
Between the lovers and small towns that I fled
It's hard to think when you're driving fast

Out here the billboards read like prayers
Breath of comfort for the highway kind
Words of wisdom, some promises and lies
If only, only for a short while

Let's sleep underneath the sky
Have a few drinks
Seem to go every night
Watch the lightning dance between the stars
??? forget who we are

But tonight those stars are mine
Take 'em with me to count the miles
Between the lovers and small towns I fled
It's hard to think when you're driving fast

It's hard to think when you're driving fast
It's hard to think when you're driving fast
It's hard to think when you're driving fast
