  • We've been doin' this longer
    Than you've been alive
    Propelled by some mysterious dry
    And they still let me do it as weird as it seems

    And I do it most nights
    Then again in my dreams
    Entering always giant hotels
    Dressing not as good as it smells

    Bottles of whisky
    Bottles of beer
    There's a bottle of medecin
    Somewhere round here

    And we'be been in nightclubs
    And we've been in bars...
    Most of our shows were a triumph of rock
    Although in some nights I might have to check in the clock

    I'm only human
    Though I'm super at times
    I would jump up a...
    I should not climb

    But save me dad
    Cause that's what he does
    We got our shares and we pass
    Somewhere the last

    It must be hard to get partner with me
    Love is a marathon
    Sometimes with puke

    Speaking of witch
    That was alcohol
    Now is the weed
    A hand full of pills

    And a heart struck that kills
    We've been longer than
    You've been alive
    Twenty good years,for about 25

    The open roads is the only place I wanna be
    Rockin' roll is very good for me
    The open roads is the only place I wanna be

    Both this stuff should be kept confidential
    You should know the truth
    Before the blast and the core

    Oh,you know you do it
    'Cause it's money you do
    And I pay my living and shaking my ass
    And if you offer me an office
    I have to pass

    I love what I do
    And I got a pretty good luck

    Get on the bar
    And try

    Rockin' roll is very good for me
    The open roads is the only place I wanna be
    Rockin' roll is very good for me
    The open roads is the only place I wanna be
    Rockin' roll is very good for me
    The open roads is the only place I wanna be
    I said : The open roads is the only place I wanna be Writer/s: Kendall Bethea, Murry Hammond, Philip Peeples, Stewart Miller
