  • I've been sitting here wondering if I'll ever get
    Back to those wheels, will I ever be
    Changing those strings out before nine
    I am wishing for the life that I used to live
    Giving everything that I had to give
    In a brand new city 'bout every night

    Missing those nights, missing that sky, I been missing home
    Missing their smiles, missing those miles, I been missing home

    Out there on the highway, out there on the open road
    Ooh baby will you roll with me, roll with me
    Head down to New Orleans
    I should be wearing out the blacktop
    Out there with the boys I love
    Everybody will you roll with me, roll with me
    Running down this dream
    And get me out there on the highway

    I've been sitting here asking him every night
    For a brand new song and a piece of mind
    The road is all I think about these days
    All I need is out there, I will be just fine
    With a 6 string guitar and a jug of wine
    When the lights go down around that stage

    Missing those nights, missing that sky, I been missing home
    Yeah, I been missing home

    Out there on the highway, out there on the open road
    Ooh baby will you roll with me, roll with me
    Head down to New Orleans
    I should be wearing out the blacktop
    Out there with the boys I love
    Everybody will you roll with me, roll with me
    Running down this dream

    I miss the sound of rubber rolling out my window
    And that crescendo the highway brings
    Oh, these wheels are gonna keep me spinning all my days
    Out here on the highway

    Out there on the highway, out there on the open road
    Ooh baby will you roll with me, roll with me
    Head down to New Orleans
    I should be wearing out the blacktop
    Out there with the boys I love
    Everybody will you roll with me, roll with me
    Everybody come and roll with me, roll with me
    And get me out there on the highway
    Oh oh, ooh ooh yeah

    Roll with me, roll with me
    Yeah honey will you roll with me, roll with me
    Out there on the highway Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
