Like the pine trees lining the winding road
I've got a name
I've got a name
Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
I've got a name
I've got a name
And I carry it with me like my daddy did
But I'm living the dream that he kept hid
Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won't pass me by
Like the North wind whistling down the sky
I've got a song
I've got a song
Like the whip-poor-will and the babies crying
I've got a song
I've got a song
And I carry it with me and I sing it proud
If it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud
Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won't pass me by
And I'm gonna go there free
Like the fool I am and I'll always be
I've got a dream
I've got a dream
They can change their minds but they can't change me
I've got a dream
I've got a dream
I know I could share it if you want me to
If your going my way I'll go with you
Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won't pass me by
Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won't pass me by

    Like the pine trees lining the winding road.
    I've got a name.
    I've got a name.
    Like the singing bird and the croaking toad.
    I've got a name.
    I've got a name.
    And I carry it with me like my daddy did.
    But I'm living the dream that he kept hid.
    Moving me down the highway.
    Rolling me down the highway.
    Moving ahead so life won't pass me by.
    Like the North wind whistling down the sky.
    I've got a song.
    I've got a song.
    Like the whip-poor-will and the babies crying.
    I've got a song.
    I've got a song.
    And I carry it with me and I sing it proud.
    If it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud.
    Moving me down the highway.
    Rolling me down the highway.
    Moving ahead so life won't pass me by.
    And I'm going to go there free.
    Like the fool I am and I'll always be.
    I've got a dream.
    I've got a dream.
    They can change their minds but they can't change me.
    I've got a dream.
    I've got a dream.
    I know I could share it if you want me to.
    If your going my way I'll go with you.
    Moving me down the highway.
    Rolling me down the highway.
    Moving ahead so life won't pass me by.
    Moving me down the highway.
    Rolling me down the highway.
    Moving ahead so life won't pass me by.
