Atlanta's a distant memory
Montgomery, a recent birth
Tulsa burns on the desert floor
Like a signal fire

And I got Willie on the radio
A dozen things on my mind
And number one is fleshing out
These dreams of mine

I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
Before I sleep
'Cause there'll be no warm sheets or welcoming arms
To fall into tonight

In Nashville there's a lighter
In a case for all to see
It speaks of dreams and heartaches
Left unsung

And in the corner stands a guitar
And lonesome words scrawled in a drunken hand
I'm treading past, traveled hard before
And I'm beginning to understand

I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
Before I sleep
But there'll be no warm sheets or welcoming arms
To fall into tonight

They say that I am crazy
My life wasting on this road
That time will find my dreams
Scared or dead and cold

But I heard there is a light
Drawing me to reach an end
And when I reach there, I'll turn back
And you and I can begin again

I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
Before I sleep
But there'll be no warm sheets or welcoming arms
To fall into tonight

I've got 200 more miles of rain asphalt in line
Before I sleep
But I wouldn't trade all your golden tomorrows
For one hour of this night

Atlanta's a distant memory
Montgomery, a recent birth
Tulsa burns on the desert floor
Like a signal fire
