lyrics

Highway Woman

She set out as the sun came up,
her baby fast asleep.
Put her Blue Ridge in the truck,
she said, "I gotta leave."

This house we built, it sure it fine,
our life is just the same.
She said, "you know I love you,
but, the road's been calling me."

Some men are prone to go blind,
along the calf paths of their mind.
They work all day from sun to sun,
doing what the others have done.
She is prone to be free.
Says, "this path don't bother me."
She'll dance for a dollar, dance for a dime,
just to get her next fix of those white lines.

She was a Highway Woman.
Fell in love with the open road.
Calico Queen,
Calamity Jane,
Hero of the Plains.

The gravel kicked a cloud of dust,
the sky turned red to blue.
She told me she'd be back again,
back then she never knew.

She was a Highway Woman.
Fell in love with the open road.
Calico Queen,
Calamity Jane,
Hero of the Plains.
