I Hit the Road (& the Road Hit Back)
Dallas Wayne, Robbie Fulks

V.1
CYMBAL CRASH LAST CALL 3 A.M.
JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN
NEXT STOP TERRE HAUTE WON'T BE NO MOTEL TONIGHT
OLD 55 IT'S BEEN A LONG WHILE
SINCE THEN WE'VE BOTH GONE A FEW MILES
GUESS EVERY TIME WE MEET YOU TAKE ANOTHER PIECE OFF OF MY LIFE

CH.
WELL, IF I'M RAGGED 'ROUND THE EDGES, LOOK A LITTLE HARD
LIFE AIN'T EASY ON A HONKY-TONK STAR
DROWNIN' MY SORROWS IN A THOUSAND DIVES
I'VE BEEN ON THIS HIGHWAY SINCE '75
MAMMA BEGGED ME TO PUT THE GUITAR DOWN
I SHOULD'A LISTENED BUT IT'S TOO LATE NOW
LEFT THAT FARM IN A BEAT-UP CADILLAC
I HIT THE ROAD AND THE ROAD HIT BACK

V.2
I FELL IN WITH A WOMAN DOWN IN BATON ROUGE
SWEET AROUND THE EYES AND FARM RAISED TOO
YOU KNOW FOR A MOMENT, I SAW BABIES AND DOGS
BUT A DOG THIS OLD CAN'T LEARN NOTHIN' NEW
AFTER SO LONG IT'S ALL I CAN DO
TO FACE ANOTHER SMOKEY ROOM, AND SING ANOTHER BROKEN LOVE SONG

REPEAT CH.
