The Highwaymen – The Road Goes On Forever lyrics
was a waitress At
the only joint in town She
had a reputation As
a girl who'd been around Down
main street after midnight Brand
new pack of cigs A
fresh one hanging from her lips A
beer between her legs She'd
ride down to the river And
meet with all her friends The

road goes on forever And
the party never ends Sonny

was a loner Bolder
than the rest He
was goin' in the Navy But
he couldn't pass the test So
he hung around town He
sold a little pot The
law caught wind of Sonny One
day he got caught But
he was back in business When
they set him free again Sonny's

playin' eight ball At
the joint where Sherry works When
some drunken out of towner Put
his hand up Sherry's skirt Sonny
took his pool cue Laid
the drunk out on the floor Stuffed
a dollar in her tip jar Walked
on out the door She's
runnin' right behind him Reachin'
for his hand They

jumped into his pick-u Sonny
jammed her down in gear Sonny
looked at Sherry Said
"Let's,get out of here The
stars were high above them The

moon was in the east The
sun was setting on them When
they reached Miami Beach They
got a motel by the water And
a quart of Bombay Gin They

soon ran out of money But
Sonny knew a man Who
knew some Cuban refugees Who
dealt in contreband Sonny
met the Cuban In
a house just off the route With
a briefcase full of money And
a pistol in his boot The
cards were on the table When
the law came bustin' in The

Cubans grabbed the goodies And
Sonny grabbed the jack He
broke the bathroom window And
climbed on out the back Sherry
drove the pick-up Through
the alley on the side Where
the lawman tackled Sonny And
was reading him his rights She
stepped out in the alley With
a single shot four-te They

left the lawman dyin' They
made their get away Got
back to the motel Just
before the break of day Sonny
gave her all the money And
he blew a little kiss If
they ask you how this happened Say
i forced you into this She
watched him as his tail lights Disappeared
around the bend There's

main street after midnight Just
like it was before Twenty-one
months later At
the local grocery store Sherry
buys a paper And
a cold six pack of beer The
headlines read that Sonny Is
going to the chair She
pulls back onto main street In
her new Mercedes-Benz
