Fiddle Music (c) 1988. Recorded March 2nd, 1988.


People put me down, say that I'm a fool
But I got news for them,
I ain't never goin' back to driving school (driving school).

And I ain't too good with numbers
And I've run out of fuel
Here comes another corner baby,
Let me demonstrate my slide rule (slide rule)

Driving thunder, rollin' down the highway,
Just one way to go, just one way to go,
Just one way to go, hey, hey, and that's my way.

I stopped into the courthouse
Had to pay some bills
Got talking with the judge
About the finer points of my driving skills (driving skills).

He said "Son you only drive that way
Tryin' to get your thrills
But bear in mind your driver's license
Ain't never been no license to kill." (License to kill)

Driving thunder, rollin' down the highway,
Just one way to go, just one way to go,
Just one way to go, hey, hey, and that's my way.

Driving school, slide rule, driving skills, license to kill.

Driving thunder, rollin' down the highway,
Just one way to go, just one way to go,
Just one way to go, hey, hey, and that's my way.
