open road lyrics – jude cole

black road, georgia trees
midnight moon, just stay with me
like a lighthouse in the sky
let these eighteen wheels fly

i woke up this morning in a motel five
brokenhearted, i’m gonna drive
through the night
down the open road

i asked her where we stood
she said, “johnny, this ain’t no good
you made the highway your home
i’m just tired of livin’ alone”

so you go your way and i’ll go mine
and maybe one day
you’ll find what you’re looking for
down the open road, down the open road

i’ve been down this road many a time
and lord, i’ve tried to find
some peace of heart, some peace of mind
but this road just winds, winds

there’s a crazy lady with a high-heeled shoes
she could take away my homesick blues
lately i feel a little crazy too
yes i do, man, yes i do

got a double sleeper and h*ll on wheels
come on sweet thing, show me how love feels
down the open road, down the open road
down the open road
ooh, somewhere down the open road

she don’t break down, she don’t run cold
sees heart and soul like a pot of gold
sees the white lines, when i’m driving blind
a hundred more miles and she’s right on time

right on time, she’s right on time
right on time, down the open road
right on time
