Well, I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight;
Those truckers, they all flash their lights at me.
This highway ain't the very best companion,
'cause I know there's somewhere else I'd rather be.

The moonlight on the snow just sets me thinking
'bout the way your smile shines upon your face.
And I know this ain't the last beer I'll be drinking
Before I reach my final resting place
Oh, i...

(chorus)

...wish that I was in your arms a' sleeping,
Dreaming of the sweet love we just made,
But I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight,
Wishin' I was in your arms again.

Oh my wheels are running hard against this mountain,
I finally crossed the archuleta line.
Another hour and I'll be with my darlin'
To dry those lonesome tears that she's been cryin'
But i...

(chorus)

I'm runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight;
Those truckers, they all flash their lights at me.
This highway ain't the very best companion,
'cause I know there's somewhere else I'd rather be.
Oh, i...

(chorus)

I am runnin' down this mountain pass at midnight,
Wishin' I was in your arms again.
