  • Another day, another dollar
    After I sing and holler
    Oh it's my way of livin'
    And I can't change a thing

    In another town is drawing near
    Oh baby I wish you were here
    But the only way I can see you darlin'
    Is in my dreams

    It's a highway song
    You sing it on and on
    On and on

    Yeah the hurt you leave behind
    Is the hurt that's on your mind
    Oh and last night sure took it's toll on me

    Well the city lights fly by me
    As I lay my body in my bed
    Oh and dreams of you flash through my head

    It's a highway song
    You sing it on and on
    On and on
    Highway song
    It's as long as
    As the road I'm on

    Yes these big wheels are ready to roll
    We've been flyin' high I'm so low
    And all in all this madness
    Ain't as crazy as it seems

    Everywhere they stop and stare
    I'm just a stranger on this road
    I stand alone only in my dreams

    Highway song
    You sing it on and on
    On and on

    Highway song
    It's as long as
    As the road I'm on

    Highway song
    Sing it on and on
    On and on

    Highway song
    It's as long as
    As the road I'm on, on uh Writer/s: JACKSON SPIRES, RICK MEDLOCKE
