I made my way through Tennessee, thumbing for a ride. I hitched my way through Oakland and down to Palestine. Stopped off for some BBQ, deep in Arkansas. Heading down to see my gal, whistling this tune. I know that she's a'waiting there, I've seen her in my dreams. I kissed her lips a thousand times, she's all I'll ever need. The mile markers counting down, until I see her face. Caddo Valley and Texarkana, babe I'm on my way. I'd swim the ocean walk the Appalachian trail. I'd wade the bayous, brave the rowdy bar-room brawls. Just to have you in my arms once more. Her beauty is beyond compare and I've seen all kinds of sights. From the sandy coastlines, to the beaming city lights. I'm on my way this very day, it's her I'll always need. Take my hand and don't look back, just like in my dreams. I'd swim the ocean walk the Appalachian trail. I'd wade the bayous, brave the rowdy bar-room brawls. Just to have you in my arms once more.

Another Life 02:55
I blew through town like a hurricane smoked too much, drank the same I swore I'd never do all that again But I'm easily led and easily swayed come on now sweetheart, what can I say My minds a'rattling like broken bottles of wine I kissed her fast, I kissed her quick I didn't mean to let the charade slip It's an all too familiar set of circumstance Another life, another time, another heart but babe yours ain't mine The open road is calling out my name I held her close, I kept her near She was whispering sweet nothings in my ear But I knew that it was never meant to be 'Cause I rarely caught a lot of names But I'll remember yours 'til my final days It's still ringing in my head the whole night through I lay awake from time to time Thinking of the girl I left behind And I wonder if she's thinking of me too Another life, another time, another heart but babe yours ain't mine The open road is calling out my name
