Steve Earle – Love's To Blame lyrics

I was not born in this town
But that ol' highway wore me down
Days roll by and turn to years
I don't know why I'm still here

He told me he loved me so
But there were things he'd never know
Then one day I said I'd stay
But he'd already turned away

I don't know why I gave into to love when it called my name
Now I'm lonely, the highway don't know me, and love's to blame

I swore I'd hit the road again
And I would not recall a thing
But every time I tried to leave
Love came tuggin' at my sleeve

I don't know know why I needed to hear someone call my name
Now I'm lonely, the highway don't know me, and love's to blame

Last night I was fast asleep
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
But I woke up to that highway sound
I knew I'd never leave this town
