More road up ahead
My radio still broken
The spinning of the wheels and the fenceline lead my way
Your picture on the dash
And the need to fly so high
Are the only two things that I can hold today
I left you way down south
Crying at the river's mouth
I got a show up north so I guess it's just as well
You're still the one for me
But I'm the man I'll always be
And I won't be the one that takes you straight to hell

Cause I'm out here on my own
Drinkin' all alone
Thinkin' bout things and what I left behind
And I need you more right now
To give me redemption somehow
Rollin' north of that Red River line

So don't you cry for me
Cause I can taste what you can't see
But always know you got a place in my heart
I got an angel riding shotgun
I got the devil in the back
And the war they wage is gonna tear me apart

Cause I'm out here on my own
Drinkin' all alone
Thinkin' bout things and what I left behind
And I need you more right now
To give me redemption somehow
Rollin' north of that Red River line

As I'm talking to you now
The sun is going down
I don't know where I am, but God it makes me smile
I need just one more word coming from your sweet lips
And I swear I'll call you back in a little while

Cause I'm out here on my own
Drinkin' all alone
Thinkin' bout things and what I left behind
And I need you more right now
To give me redemption somehow
Rollin' north of that Red River line
