Key(s) to the Highway
I got the key to the highway,
And I'm billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here runnin',
'Cause walkin' is most too slow

I'm goin' down on the border,
Now where I'm better known
'Cause, woman, you don't do nothin',
But drive a good man 'way from home

Now when the moon creeps over the mountain,
I'll be on my way
Now I'm gonna walk this old highway,
until the break of day

Run here, sweet mama,
Now and help me with this heavy load
I am due in West Texas,
And I've got to get on the road

I'm goin' to West Texas,
I'm goin' down behind the sun
I'm gonna ask the good Lord
What evil have I done
