Barefoot McCoy – The Road lyrics

Hitch-a-hikin' yellow highway lines
Through minin’ towns with railway signs
Across the Mason-Dixon Line and I'm on fire.

I'm ridin’ in the cold train car
And sleepin' under every star—
The space has never felt so far to where you are.

And although I will love you ’til the end,
The road's my only friend.

I'm a-dancin’ on the oil rigs,
Just like Rockefeller did.
I’m livin' like an outlaw kid, my heart is hid.

I'm on a raft with old hook Finn,
Countin’ waves to where you been,
Listenin’ to the rain and wind a-whisperin’.

So let the river roll and free my soul.
Thank God if life only makes you old.
And although I will love you ’til the end,
The road's my only friend.

I'm a-livin’ in a different time;
I’m dyin’ on the other side;
Leavin’ this old world behind and I feel fine

Oh, I'm livin’ by the canyon light
And dyin’ by the old dig site,
Searchin’ for this heart of mine I know I'll never find.

Though I could lead you helpless by the hand,
It's a world you'd never understand.
So let the river roll and free my soul.
Thank God if life only makes you old.
And although I will love you ’til the end,
The road's my only friend.
