Dave Alvin – New Highway lyrics

Dave Alvin
(Blue Horn Toad Music, BMI, Administered by Bug Music)


Well I'm leavin' this mornin' baby
Gonna ride that new highway
Yeah I'm leavin' this mornin' baby
Gonna ride that new highway
And the more you cry the more you gonna drive me away.

I ain't got no family
Ain't got no wife or no child
I ain't got no family
Ain't got no wife, no child
Ain't got no religion, I'm just out here runnin' wild.

Well a rich man's got money
And a poor man's only got his soul
Yeah rich man's got the money baby
Poor boy only got his soul
But I got this new highway and I don't care where I go.

Well this new highway baby
Takes me from town to town
Yeah this new highway baby
Takes me from town to town
Where some sweet angel always lets me lay down.

Well my Kansas woman's got
Skin as white as snow
Yeah my Kansas City baby's got
Skin as white as snow
But my Deep Ellum woman's got hair as black as coal.

Well your lovers will leave you baby
Good friends will come and go
Yeah your lovers will leave you baby
Good friends come and go
But this new highway's the best friend I've ever known.

Now the gold sun's settin' baby
Silver moon on the rise
Yeah the gold sun's settin' baby
Silver moon on the rise
Gonna ride this highway 'til the day I die.
