Coming down the highway, running like a wind Gonna beat the sunset to the coast and back again Moving through the shadows, almost going blind Living like a legend before my time

If the road don't kill me, baby, I'll see you in the spring Making up for lost time between us seems like everything If I can make it home alright, you know, I'll treat you fine Living like a legend before my time

I know, it wasn't easy for you, baby
With your man out on the road
So I'll be coming home tomorrow To try to help you carry the load

I'm running out of highways and bridges to burn
This kind of living is taking its toll on what I've learned You know, it ain't easy leaving you behind Living like a legend before my time

But someday, baby, I'll be coming home to stay Wrapped up in your warm love every night and every day
Ooh, I'm going out of my mind Living like a legend before my time

I know, it wasn't easy for you, baby
With your man out on the road
So I'll be coming home tomorrow To try to help you carry the load

I'll be getting up early 'cause I know, I'm coming home
I'm so tired of living this legend life alone Kick off your shoes, babe, we'll drink a little wine Forget about living like a legend before my time
 Forget about living like a legend Just forget about the road
So, look out for me, darling On account of your man is coming home
