or
Buddy Jewell

Time was, we couldn't wait to feel each other's touch
Couldn't stand to be apart too long or too much
Now's a different situation, funny how love can start to fade
How fast it goes from boom to bust

Well, if I had my choice
We'd part as friends, but it ain't up to me
You told me to go where it don't snow
Well, if that's how it's gonna be

Just gimme two rails of steel
Silver wings or eighteen wheels
This ain't the first time in my life
I been sent packin' with my pride

All I need's a blacktop road
Don't even matter where I go
The moon an' stars will keep me company till the dawn
An' when the sun comes up we'll both be glad I'm gone

So you can keep your Dear John letter if it's all the same to you
I've read the writin' on the wall, we're through
Your own words of consolation, your self-righteous indignation
Sound more like lies to tell the truth

Feels good, I guess
To get it off my chest before I'm up an' leave
So you can save your sermon for someone else
Instead of wastin' it on me

Just gimme two rails of steel
Silver wings or eighteen wheels
This ain't the first time in my life
I been sent packin' with my pride

All I need's a blacktop road
Don't even matter where I go
The moon an' stars will keep me company 'till the dawn
An' when the sun comes up we'll both be glad I'm gone

Just gimme two rails of steel
Silver wings or eighteen wheels
This ain't the first time in my life
I been sent packin' with my pride

All I need's a blacktop road
Don't even matter where I go
The moon an' stars will keep me company 'till the dawn
And when the sun comes up we'll both be glad I'm gone
Glad I'm gone
