"Highways and Heartaches" as written by and Grissom/ely....
Leaving California, she is on my mind
I left her back in Travis county, cryin' to a clothesline
A steel guitar on the radio is cuttin' slow and mean
I brought home the bottle, she just wanted beans

Highways and heartaches
Go together like you and me
Do you ever think about it
When the night is sad and lonely

I wonder if she's watchin' TV, cryin' with soap opera stars
I wonder if she sees them in me and if we gone too far
Look at all the lovers runnin' from their past
Gassin' up just to get somewhere, goin' nowhere fast

Highways and heartaches
Go together like you and me
Do you ever think about it
When the night is sad and lonely

Do you ever think about me
When the night is sad and lonely
Do you ever think about me
When the night is sad and lonely

Runnin' away, don't stop the pain, it just delays the cryin'
What's left unsaid is better swallowed than covered up with lyin'
Though the song is over I still hear the steel guitar
And though the past is gone for good, it still helps to swallow hard

Highways and heartaches
Go together like you and me
Do you ever think about it
When the night is sad and lonely

Do you ever think about it
When the night is sad and lonely
Do you ever think about it
When the night is sad and lonely
