Old Crow Medicine Show – Highway Halo lyrics

Driving rain
Narrow shoulder
Breakdown lane
Marching forward
Going where I do not know
One eye on the open road
Stepping out in the great unknown
With a highway halo

Shaky face
Lily Kimball
Patron saint
Traveling minstrel
Let her dusty wings unfold
Forgive her bad luck soul
Put her in a purple robe
And a highway halo

Passing trains
Sound like silver
Broken chains
Shine like gold
Fortune's just a painted stone
Going where them hobos roam
Crowned king of a jungle throne
With a highway halo

Going where it suits my soul
Can't you hear my big wheels roll
You can light up the darkest road
With a beam of eternal glow
With a highway
With a highway
With a highway halo
