(Buck Johnson, Seven Williams, Walter Brandt, Bill Brandt, Cliff Downs)

You and I spent so many nights
Feeling alone lying side by side
I take a last look and I say goodnight
Blow you a kiss and turn out the light

Guess this time I won't be comin' back
I'll leave the key under the welcome mat

Chorus
It's a little after midnight
And the windin' road ahead looks black
I'm drivin' with one headlight
And the signs are sayin' don't turn back
Tears are fillin' up my eyes
I'm tryin' to stay between the lines
Can't waste another day livin' a lie
I'm on Highway 59
And It's leading to goodbye

I see the weepin' willow disappear
In our front yard through the rear view mirror
These country roads that brought me home for years
Now are taking me away from here

Headin' over red mountain pass
I hope to make Montgomery before I run out of gas

Chorus
It's a little after midnight
And the windin' road ahead looks black
I'm drivin' with one headlight
And the signs are sayin' don't turn back
Tears are fillin' up my eyes
I'm tryin' to stay between the lines
Can't waste another day livin' a lie
I'm on Highway 59
And It's leading to goodbye

Bridge
Two lovers holdin' on and wastin' time
Thirsty for love but the wells run dry
