The sun has opened up my eyes,An' I don't want to leave your side,For that lonesome road but here I go.Climbing back behind the wheel,Of 50 feet of chrome and steel,An' a load they need in Chicago.Through the middle of the night unknown,I'm on a ride that won't let me go.I'm an asphalt cowboy;Born to run underneath the stars...Pay no mind to my lonely heart,I just ride, ride.Till I'm back in your arms again,I'll be out here on the wind. An' sometimes late at night,I see your picture by the dashboard light,And it takes me where I'd like to be.Wrapped up in a blanket there,Pulling ribbons from you hair and your kiss...Girl that's what I miss.Still I drive these horses through the rain and snow,This high-speed rodeo is all I know.I'm an asphalt cowboy;Born to run underneath the stars...Pay no mind to my lonely heart,I just ride, ride.Till I'm back in your arms again,I'll be out here on the wind.An' I'll ride,Till I'm back in your arms again,I'll be out here on the wind.An' I'll ride,Through the middle of the night unknown,I'm on a ride that won't let me go.

    This song is about a truck driver and how his life is on the road without his love. An "asphalt cowboy" is a trucker.

    Asphalt cowboy is like the meaning of life. Both of my dads were truck drivers. One is still driving at averitt express. I love trucking song they make me cry but very happy
