Eric Clapton – Key To The Highway lyrics

I've got the key to the highway
Billed out and bound to go
Gonna leave here runnin'
Walkin's most too slow

I'm goin' back to the border
Baby, where I'm better known
Because you haven't done nothin', baby
But drive a good man from home

When the moon beats on the mountain
Little girl, I'll be on my way
I'm gonna roam this highway
Until the break of day

Oh, give me one more kiss darlin'
Just before I go
'Cos when I leave this time, little girl
I won't be back no more

I got the key
(I got the key)
To the highway
(To the highway)

Billed out and bound to go
(I gotta go, I gotta go)
I'm gonna leave here runnin'
Walkin's most too slow
