my lyricsbox
Met 'em on the highway
Way out on the road
Where they were a-headin'
Don't think anybody knows
Didn't care where,
Only needed to go

They're just rollin' along

Pulled into a truckstop
A hundred miles to go
Feelin' kind of beat up
After eatin' up the road
Thought we had it tough
'Til we heard their tale of woe

They'd been rollin' along
Livin' on the highway
Rollin' along
Travellin' way too far
Rollin' along
With the mess they're under
Lightnin' and the thunder...
Just rollin' along
Rollin' along

Said they'd play for pickin's
Any place on up the road
Thought it would come easy
They'd be rakin' in the dough
Barely brings a livin'
Said "I guess it comes slow"
And they're rollin' along

Told me they'd seen trouble
A short time ago
At a rock n' roll house
Where they'd tried to steal the show
Cowboys let 'em have it
And they showed 'em where to go
Now they're...

Rollin along
Livin' on the highway
Rollin' along
Travellin' way too far
Rollin' along
With the mess they're under
Lightnin' and the thunder
Just rollin' along

Haven't got an eagle
Or a place to lay their heads
Have to run the highway
Still they're gonna make it
Still they've got the will
You know they're gonna make it
They keep climbin' up the hill

Rollin' for the highway
Stood and watched 'em go
Wonderin' if they'd manage
As they blew off down the road
Thinkin' how we'd made this trip
So many years ago
Just rollin' along

Livin' on the highway
Rollin' along
Travellin' way too far
Rollin' along
With this mess they're under
Lightnin' and the thunder...

Just rollin' along
Rollin' along
Just rollin' along
Whoa, rollin' along
Keep those wheels a-turnin'
Whoa, rollin' along
Just rollin' along
Just rollin' along
