"The Songs They Played As I Drove Away" as written by Tim Adrian Rogers and Jenine Adele Anderson....
I got from Campbelltown to Yass
On a borrowed tank of gas
And I never missed a pothole on the trail
but what really drove the nails
were the songs they played as I drove away
I wanted "rock n roll all night"
Or something to make the night seem like it was going to end
That there was something to get to up around the bend
I sure hope you're out drinking with friends
tonight, as I drive away

Tonight the radio jockey he tried to kill me
Every tune was like a dull punch in the rain
Its only 270 miles to my temporary
But oh that guy he's gonna make me pay

After "Flame Trees" and "Khe Sahn" and "Solitary Man"
A long time listener first time caller just won a thousand plans
Buy some new clothes for the kids
and oh, they're gonna make me pay as I drive away

Tonight the radio jockey he tried to kill me
Every tune was like a dull punch in the rain
Its only 100 miles to my temporary
But oh that fucker's gonna make me pay

I know its late
Is it okay to call and say
You just wont believe the songs they played as I drove away
You just wont believe the songs they played as I drove away
Sure wish I brought a tape tonight
As I drove away...
