(Bill LaBounty - Steve Wariner)
Straight ahead, right down the highway
Out across New Mexico
Passing trucks with Haggard
Singing on the radio.
There's a shootin' star falling behind me
But wishin' won't make a dream come true
Right now there's only one thing
That I gotta do.
I gotta drive, keep on rolling
I gotta cover some ground tonight
I gotta drive like a river flowing
In her arms, I'm gonna be alright.
One more stop, fill her up
A cup of coffee and a piece of pie
A dollar tip and I'm back out
Under that western sky.
Got the pedal down as far as it's going
I ain't worryin' about my speed
'Cause I just don't know
How long she'll wait for me.
Oh, I gotta drive, keep on rolling
I gotta cover some ground tonight
I gotta drive like a river flowing
In her arms, I'm gonna be alright.
--- Instrumental ---
There's a shootin' star falling behind me
But wishin' won't make a dream come true
Right now there's only one thing
That I gotta do.
Oh, I gotta drive, keep on rolling
I gotta cover some ground tonight
I gotta drive like a river flowing
In her arms, I'm gonna be alright.
Drive, I gotta drive
Oh, I gotta drive, I gotta drive...
