i gotta get back on the road lyrics – cold chisel

i gotta get back on the road

there’s a lone jet-trail west of the moon
nothing for a thousand miles below
a one-pump roadhouse, late afternoon
my time is over here, i gotta go

i gotta get back on the road
finish up and pay
there’s nothing here as good as a girl i know
a thousand miles away
i gotta get back on the road
to where i want to be
i won’t see her till i deliver my load
by the light of another day

outside the highway is parallel
to that stroke of chalk above
as far as i can tell

there are two reasons come to mind
keep a good man on the run
there’s always some complication left behind
somewhere, one day, i’ll find the other one

i gotta get back on the road…

outside the highway waits, another year
fades and dissipates high in the stratosphere

there’s a lone jet-trail west of the moon
nothing for a thousand miles below
a one-pump roadhouse, late afternoon
my time is over here, i gotta go

i gotta get back on the road…
