Have you ever heard of The Magazines 
They re a band out of New Orleans 
They broke in Chicago  Shaking the walls of every kid in the suburbs 

I lifted my thumb up to the old highway  Carved their names across the USA  Chasing a rock band
 Chasing the ghost of the King in Graceland 

Set me free
There's nothing but highway in front of me
 Louisiana bayou, thunderstorms in Tennessee 
Set me free
There's nothing behind me but history  Every town I greeted  Everything I needed to know
Was breaking through the radio 

I hitched a ride down to Tupelo 
With a caravan of gypsy souls
Dancin' in moon shine  Every song pulled me in like a life line

Set me free
There's nothing behind me but history  Every town I greeted  Everything I needed to know
Was breaking through the radio 

Now I'm walking down a two lane road
With a dog named Trey and girl named Joe
 Headed for Georgia 
Ain't it good to be where everyone knows ya

Set me free
There's nothing but highway in front of me
 Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for the Magazines 
Set me free
There's nothing behind me but history  Every town I greeted  Everything I needed to know
Was breaking through the radio
