Amarillo Highway

Amarillo Highway

Robert Earl Keen, Jr.

I'm a high straight in Plainview
A side bet in Idalou
An' a fresh deck in New Deal
Yeah some call me high hand

And some call me low hand
But I'm holding what I am the wheel'Cause I'm panhandlin' manhanlin'
Post holin' high rollin' dust bowlin' Daddy
I ain't got no blood in my veins

I just got them four lanes
Of hard Amarillo Highway
I don't wear no Stetson
But I'm willin' to bet son

That I'm big a Texan as you are
There's a girl in her bare feet
Asleep on the back seat
And that trunk's full of Pear beer and Lone Star

'Cause I'm panhandlin' manhanlin'
Post holin' high rollin' dust bowlin' Daddy
I ain't got no blood in my veins
I just got them four lanes

Of hard Amarillo Highway
Gonna hop outta bed
Pop a pill in my head
Bust the hub for the Golden Spread

Under Blue Skies
Gonna stuff my hide
Behind some Power Glide
Get some southern friend

Back in my hide
'Cause I'm panhandlin' manhanlin'
Post holin' high rollin' dust bowlin' Daddy
I ain't got no blood in my veins

I just got them four lanes
Of hard Amarillo Highway
As close as I'll ever get to Heaven
Is makin' speed up old eighty-seven

Of that hard Amarillo Highway
