Well I've been down to the valley
Yes, I've looked up to the sky
And I've been lost in the heartland
I've been down the wind high

Across the Ohio River, chased the trains to Santa Fe
Seen the fields of Virginia across the great northern plains
But I wish there was a southbound highway headed straight for LA
Oh the miles keep tearing me away
And my love for you will never ever change
I heard another American heartbreak

Well I've met all kinds of people
From the northeast to the west
Man I've looked for some kind of meaning
That I've tried hard to forget

Across the Ohio River, took the train to Santa Fe
Seen the fields of Virginia across Chesapeake Bay
Man I wish there was a southbound highway headed straight for LA
Oh the miles keep tearing me away
And my love for you will never ever change
I heard another American heartbreak

Across the Ohio River, seen the trains in Santa Fe
Seen the fields of Virginia across the great northern plains
But I wish there was a southbound highway headed straight for LA
Oh the miles keep tearing me away
And my love for you will never ever change
I heard another American heartbreak
