The Way I Feel

  • I'm heading out without a tear
    I'm heading out without a fight
    Nothing like this empty road
    To take some trouble off my mind

    Had enough of sad days
    Had enough of sleepless nights
    I only need a tank of gas
    Babe I'm going for a ride

    Cause when I'm all alone on a midnight highway
    There's nothing like two hands on the wheel
    And the radio playing I Won't Back Down
    Baby that's about the way I feel

    Might be gone a couple of hours
    Might be gone a couple of days
    I won't know til I turn around
    We'll have to see just how it plays

    All the way down 81
    I've got some friends in Nashville
    Atlanta it's been way too long
    By morning I'll make Asheville

    Cause when I'm all alone on a midnight highway
    There's nothing like two hands on the wheel
    And the way the wind blows just before a rainstorm
    Baby that's about the way I feel

    Don't know if you tried to call
    My phone ran out of signal
    I don't know if you miss me at all:

    'Cause I'm out here all alone on a midnight highway
    And I've got both hands on the wheel
    Passing darkened towns the world's forgotten
    Baby that's about the way I feel
    Just a little speck on the far horizon
    Baby that's about the way I feel
    And I won't back down Writer/s: MARY CARPENTER
