I've been livin' on truck stop coffee
Cigarettes and vitamin C
It's a wonder that the Devil ain't caught me
I guess he's tired of playin' hide and seek
I've been drivin' like I'm struck by lightnin'
I think about you, and I start to speed
I might as well be playin' with matches
In a trailer load of gasoline
(Chorus:)
If it's the last thing i do
If it takes me from tupelo to timbuktu
If it's the last thing i do
I'm gonna dodge every road block, speed trap, county cop
To get my hands on you
If it's the last thing i do
A box of chicken and a day old biscuit
Ain't nothin' left but a few old bones
I oughtta stop, but I'm gonna risk it
Caffeine got me chewin' Styrofoam
Girl, I'm callin' out of Kansas City
From a fillin' station telephone
Just had to tell you what I've been thinkin'
First thing I wanna do when I get home
(Chorus)
Well, I've been drivin' like I'm struck by lightnin'
I think about you, and I start to speed
I might as well be playin' with matches
In a trailer load of gasoline
(Chorus)
If it's the last thing I do
If it's the last thing I do
Ah, yeah
