Hello highway, take me home to Lafayette
I gotta get away, let’s just leave it at that
It’s safe to say that I’m on the way, that I’ll never find you now
For the wrong that I done, the wrongs that I done

Goodbye penitentiary, with all due respect to your authority
But they shoulda though twice before putting me in minimum security
It’s safe to say that I’m getting away, they’ll never catch me now
For the wrongs that I done

Hello countryside, scenery is so wide and so vast
But I can’t appreciate you much, you know, I’ve been driving much too fast
It’s safe to say the end is on it's way, I can see them coming now
For the wrong that I done, the wrongs that I done
