Song Meaning
Verse 1
Won't you scratch my itch sweet Annie Rich
And welcome me back to town
Come out on your porch or I'll step into your parlour
And I'll tell you how it all went down
Verse 2
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town
And I remember something that you once told me
Verse 3
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you
'Cause I headed West to grow up with the country
Verse 4
Across those prairies with those waves of grain
And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue sea
And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennesee
We flew straight across that river bridge
Verse 5
Last night half past two
The switchman waved his lantern goodbye and good day as we
Went rolling through
Billboards and truckstops pass by the grievous angel
Verse 6
And now I know just what I have to do
And the man on the radio won't leave me alone
He wants to take my money for something I've never been shown
And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue sea
Verse 7
And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennesee
The news I could bring I met up with the king
On his head an amphetamine crown
He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt
Verse 8
And headed out for some desert town
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town
And I remember something that you once told me
Verse 9
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down down down
And they all lead me straight back home to you
Twenty thousand roads I went down down down
Verse 10
And they all lead me straight back home to you
