Driving Myself Crazy

I guess it's been some time
Since my feet been on solid ground
They've been hovering over the road
That my wheels keep rollin' down
And I bet you that these truckers
They must wonder who I am
To keep speedin' past 'em up the road
And heading right back down again

It's all that I can do Just to keep it between the lines
The hum of the road keeps humming through my mind
After this many miles it all gets a little hazy
I've been here before I'm just driving myself crazy

A locomotive blowing smoke and glittering in the sun
Raced me by the road and I'm proud to say I won
But maybe I lost 'cause I don't know what its worth
To keep spinning these wheels along with the spinning of the earth

Chorus

The road is a raging river and I just follow where it leads
I don't pay too much attention to those old trucks in the weeds
Rusting at the junk yards on the outskirts of town
This old truck's still running, I got no time to slow it down
