I got the key to the highway,
Billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running people 
Because walking is most too slow

I'm going back, to the border 
Before they put up the fence
Where I'm better known
Because you haven't done nothing baby,
Except drove a good man away from home

When the moon peeks over the mountains
Baby I'm gonna be on my way
I'm gonna roam this mean old highway
Until the break of day

So give me one, give one more kiss baby
Before I go,
'Cause when I leave this town
I won't be back no more, no more

So give me one more kiss baby
Give me one more kiss baby before I go,
'Cause when I leave this town
I won't be back no more, no more

So goodbye, goodbye baby
Baby I must, I must, I must say goodbye
Cause I'm a roam this mean old highway
Until the day I die
I'm gonna do this til the day I die folks
