lyrics

Highway 27

Work all day and drive all night
to see my son and my ex-wife
she said “you just don’t understand”
now my life is lived by another man
yeah, we make our own hell or heaven
mine’s down Highway 27

Truck stop ‘cross the county line
God and the Devil just passing time
have they called my number, well here’s my soul
Devil said “our coffee is getting cold”
God just said “don’t bet on hell or heaven –
you can’t get there from Highway 27”


I don’t know what’s coming next
nothing good is my best guess
can’t see for the driving rain
smoke from fields of burning cane
headlights split the dark of night
nothing in this world seems right
airbrakes shriek and tires squeal
Death’s behind the semi’s wheel
ditch to the right canal on my left
I can’t stop the road’s too wet
no time to pray no last regret

This is all the life I get

Tell my son I’ve gone to heaven
straight from Highway 27
