She was still in Ontario when I headed down Thunder Bay
I stopped off for gas in St. Paul and it got me through all of IA
Yeah, she really made me mad this time and I had to get away
So I was Texas bound just like that, and Texas I'd stay

In a Kansas City bar off of I-35
I stopped off for directions to make up for lost time
Said I was looking for the fastest way to Texas tonight

A man on a stool by himself started giving me advice
He said, I know the shortcuts, cause that interstate, it messed up my life.
It was San Antonio, it was the middle of the night
She knew I was all wrong, but she didn't want to fight
So I jumped in my car and I drove out of her sight

The way I get back is, son, I...

Walk up, sit down and buy myself a double, then
The whole time I'm there, that's when I crumble
And it's whiskey, not the highway, that drives me to tears
And that's the fastest way to Texas from here
The fastest way to Texas from here

He went on to tell me all the things along the way that remind him of her
That's why he won't go back the same way, cause of how much it hurts
He said, light conversation can lead anywhere
From football to baseball to how life just ain't fair
But in this part of this bar we don't like to go there

But if you really want to know I just...

Walk up, sit down and buy myself a double, then
The whole time I'm there, that's when I crumble
And it's whiskey, not the highway, that drives me to tears
And that's the fastest way to Texas from here
The fastest way to Texas from here

Well, it's my way
Or the highway...

(Lap Steel and Lead Guitar Solos)

Well, he stumbled his way through his life, through the pain and regret
He said, take a look at that old car outside, cause it's all I have left
And let me say one last thing, before you hit the road
And buy you a round, propose a toast
To the one man in this bar who knows who I hurt the most

And I guess I got it then cause I just...

Walked up, sit down and bought us both a double, then
The whole time we were there, that's when I crumble
And it's whiskey, not the highway, that drives me to tears
And that's the fastest way to Texas from here
The fastest way to Texas from here
The fastest way to Texas from here, yes it is
Yes it is, baby...

She was still in Ontario and I headed up Thunder Bay...
