Key To The Highway Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've got the key to the highway
Billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here, runnin'
Because walkin' is most too slow
Verse 2
I'm going back to the border
Where I'm better known
'Cause you haven't done nothin'
But drove a good man away from home
Verse 3
Give me one mo' kiss, mama
Just befo' I go
'Cause when I'm leavin' here
I won't be back no mo'
Verse 4
When the moon
Peep o'vr the mountain
Honey, I'll be on my way
I'm gonna walk this highway
Until the break of day
Verse 5
Well, it's so-long, so-long, baby
I must say good-bye
I'm gonna roam this highway
Until the day I die.
Verse 6
(harmonica & instrumental to end)
Verse 7
