I'm driving the highway,
making my way day down to Santa Fe
I'm gonna sleep in the hills
I'm gonna run through the valleys
As always, thinking of you

The turquoise and silver
on the bank of a river
where I give to her twenty dollars for two
pretty little earrings, I'm always thinking of you

I'm driving out west to New Mexico
in my 1998 Volvo
trying to find someplace I'd rather be
caught on a thorn of my rose in Tennessee

I'm driving along and I roll the windows down
and the wind starts whipping around my head
and I hear the sound of my baby's voice say
"Come back home"
I'm always thinking of you

But I keep on keepin' on
turn my headlights on and I drive til dawn
til the sun burns red
Like the hair on your head, I'm always thinking of you
Oh

Driving out west to New Mexico
in my 1998 Volvo
trying to find someplace I'd rather be
but caught in the thorns of my rose in Tennessee
