Roll Me Away
by Bob Seger



Took a look down a westbound road,
Right away I made my choice,
Headed out to my big two-wheeler,
I was tired of my own voice,
Took a bead on the northern plains and just rolled that power on,

Twelve hours out of Mackinaw City stopped in a bar to have a brew,
Met a girl and we had a few drinks and I told her what I'd decided to do,
She looked out the window a long long moment and then she looked into my eyes,
She didn't have to say a thing,
I knew what she was thinkin,

Roll, roll me away,
Won't you roll me away tonight,
I too am lost, I feel double-crossed,
Now I'm sick of what's wrong and what' right,
We never even said a word,
Just walked out and got on that bike,
And we rolled,
And we rolled clean outta sight

We rolled across the high plains,
Deep into the mountains,
Felt so good to me,
Finally feelin free,
Somewhere along a high road,
The air began to turn cold,

She said she missed her home,
I headed on alone,
Oh!

Stood alone on a mountain top,
Starin' out at the Great Divide,
I could go East,
I could go West,
It was all up to me to decide,
Just then I saw a young hawk flyin' and my soul began to rise,
And pretty soon,
My heart was singin',

Roll, roll me away,
I wanna roll me away tonight,
Gotta keep rollin',
Gotta keep ridin', keep searchin' till i find what's right,
And as the sunset faded I spoke to the faintest first starlight,
I said next time,
Next time we'll get it right,

Roll me away,
Roll me away,

Tonight,

Roll me away
