  • Barbed wire fence carving out a hillside, cutting holes in the midday sun
    Like a postcard framed in a windshield covered in dust
    I love the rhythm of an old grey blacktop, 33's just whistlin' by
    Steer the wheel, one handed on a two lane, hugging that line
    I got the windows down, no one else around singin'

    Ooh ooh ooh
    Freedom is the miles I'm rollin' on
    Ooh ooh ooh
    Out here cruising to a backroad song
    I feel the wheels like a melody, like a radio dialing in strong
    C'mon, c'mon sing along, sing along to my backroad song
    Ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh

    I hit the brakes for an old New Holland, hammer down and pass him on up
    The breeze smells like a summertime hay field's just been cut
    I got the windows down, way out of town singing

    Ooh ooh ooh
    Freedom is the miles I'm rollin' on
    Ooh ooh ooh
    Out here cruising to a backroad song
    I feel the wheels like a melody, like a radio dialing in strong
    C'mon, c'mon sing along, sing along to my backroad song
    Ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh

    The only way today could get better, girl what I'm thinkin'
    Is I can pick you up, you slide in this truck
    I can hear you singing

    Ooh ooh ooh
    Let me hear you sing it
    Ooh ooh ooh

    Ooh ooh ooh
    Freedom is the miles we're rollin' on
    Ooh ooh ooh
    Out here cruising to a backroad song
    I feel the wheels like a melody, like a radio dialing in strong
    C'mon, c'mon sing along, sing along to my backroad song
    C'mon, c'mon sing along, sing along to my backroad song

    This is my backroad song
    Ooh ooh ooh (Feel the rhythm of it, feel the rhythm of it)
    This is my backroad song
    Ooh ooh ooh (Feel the rhythm of it, feel the rhythm of it)
    Come on, come on, sing along
    Ooh ooh ooh (Feel the rhythm of it, feel the rhythm of it)
    To my backroad song
    Ooh ooh ooh (Feel the rhythm of it, feel the rhythm of it) Writer/s: Frank Rogers, Granger Smith
