It's hard to leave town like Jesse James
On a long flat piece of interstate
When the only thing underneath your wheels
Is concrete and Pittsburgh steel
That two lane sure can get you gone
But it don't do a thing to hide where you came from

I wish I could've left in a cloud of dust
On an old dirt road where they kick it up
Like a hell-bent desperado heading west
There wouldn't be no looking back
Even if I did I wouldn't have
This clear view in my rear view
Of losing everything I've ever loved
Oh yea, I wish I could've left in a cloud of dust

Them old cowboys had it made
But they don't make goodbyes like that these days
Yea, one long look next thing you know
You have to watch her watch you go
There's only one thing worse than words I can't unsay
It's that picture in my mind I can't erase

I wish I could've left in a cloud of dust
On an old dirt road where they kick it up
Like a hell-bent desperado heading west
There wouldn't be no looking back
Even if I did I wouldn't have
This clear view in my rear view
Of losing everything I've ever loved
Oh yea, I wish I could've left in a cloud of dust

No, there wouldn't be no looking back
Even if I did I wouldn't have
This clear view in my rear view
Of losing everything I've ever loved
Oh yea, I wish I could've left in a cloud of dust

I wish I could've left in a cloud of dust
In a cloud of dust
