Tom T. Hall – Highways lyrics

Highways take me everywhere I want to go with one exception standing
That road leads into the quiet places in the shadows of your mind
The beaten path of common words can only lead us to misunderstanding
I believe that I can see the love for you that is a greater kind
Highways take me over the mountains into the valleys and out through the plains
Wanting to be in your heart's understanding I travel each highway in vain

Highways only take me into places where the average of the crowd goes
Where they affix the standard on the language and emotions of the love
Highways never reach above the ground and cannot know the things a cloud knows
In a million volumes they have never written to express my love
Highways take me over the mountains...
Highways take me over the mountains...
