Listen to the motor
Getting louder as we go
One way or another
Gonna make it back home

Mountains to the water
Chewing up the scenery
Fog it only hovers
Or it blinds us on beams

This it what it does
Traveling the open road

Get here on the double
We'll make it right away

This is what it loves
Traveling the open road

Now she's talking dirty
I'll get there in a hurry and see
You don't have to worry
A secret little birdie told me
Keeping things in motion
Baby keep on running from me
The static on the radio
I'm picking up speed

Hear me out mama
I don't mean for you to weep
Back to you tomorrow
Now don't you lose sleep

This is what it does
Traveling the open road

Ahh, Ooohh

Hey it's 9: 30
My vision's getting blurry to me
I'll get there in a hurry
But the police are following me
But keep it in perspective
And maybe come and visit for free
And I hear it on the interstate in Nashville, Tennessee

Hey, Hey,
Hey, Hey,
Hey, Hey,

Keeping things in motion
Babe you're running from me
The static on the radio
I'm picking up speed

Hey, Hey,
Hey, Hey,
Hey, Hey,
Ooh, Oooh
