lyrics

I’m headed down that old highway just one more time
I don’t think I’ll be back this way again
Been thinking about my younger days when the world was mine
But it’s too late to atone for all my sins

Maybe the air’s a little cleaner
On the other side
Maybe I’ll find the peace I’ve been denied

I started out an honest man, gonna live my life right
I didn’t want to take any more than rightly was my share
But this ain’t no place for an honest man to fight the good fight
They’ll beat you and break you ’til there’s nothing left of you anywhere

But maybe the sky’s a little bluer
On the other side
Maybe I’ll find the peace I’ve been denied

Well, no one warned me ‘bout the road beyond my first burning sip
But man the whisky sure eased this troubled mind
And I’ve been told that that old corn liquor made me one mean son of a bitch
Too blind to see the broken souls I left behind

But maybe the rivers run freer
On the other side
Maybe I’ll find the peace I’ve been denied

I’m headed down that old highway
Just one more time
I don’t think I’ll be back this way again
