Two wheels a'turning
One girl a'yearning
Big motor burning the road

I'll ride the highway
I'm going my way
I'll leave a story untold

Pretty girls behind me
But pretty girls are everywhere
Big motor wind up, ride on away from here

Ride away

She won't approve of things I do or what I am
And I don't really give a .., I understand
But she'll never see that I'll never be
Any one but me

She thinks she needs me, she cries for me
But I know she's lying, crying for others to see
What can I say, I'll just ride away

(Ride away, boy, ride, ride away, boy)
Big motor run, run
(Ride away, boy, ride, ride away, boy)
Ride on away from
(Ride away, boy, ride, ride away, boy)
Heartache and misery
(Ride away, boy, ride, ride away, boy)

(Ride away, boy, ride, ride away, boy)
I'm bound to wander
(Big motor run, run, big motor run, run)
Way over yonder
(Big motor run, run, big motor run, run)
Someone be waiting just for me
(Big motor run, run, big motor run, run)
(Big motor run, run, big motor run, run)

True love to cling to, I need a dream to share
(Ride away, boy, ride, ride away, boy)
Someone to know me, someone to show me they care
(Ride away, boy, ride, ride away, boy)
Ride away (ride, ride, ride) ride away (ride, ride, ride)
From tears and sorrow
Like there's no tomorrow

Tonight I'll ride away
