Take to the highway won't you lend me your name
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same

Mama don't understand it
She wants to know where I've been
I'd have to be some kind of natural born fool
To want to pass that way again 
But you know I could feel it
On a country road

Sail on home to Jesus won't you good girls and boys
I'm all in pieces, you can have your own choice 
But I can hear a heavenly band full of angels 
And they're coming to set me free
I don't know nothing 'bout the why or when
But I can tell that it's bound to be
 Because I could feel it, child, yeah
On a country road

I guess my feet know where they want me to go
 Walking on a country road

Take to the highway won't you lend me your name
Your way and my way seem to be one and the same, child 
Mama don't understand it
She wants to know where I've been
I'd have to be some kind of natural born fool
I wanna pass that way again 
But I could feel it, oh
On a country road

Walk on down, walk on down, walk on down
Walk on down, walk on down a country road
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
 Country road, oh, yeah
 Walking on a country road

 Country road, uh
 Country road
