Took a look down a westbound road right away I made my choice Headed out to my big two wheeler I was tired of my own voice Took a bead on the northern plains and just rolled that power on
Twelve hours out of Mackinaw City stopped in a bar to have a brew Met a girl and we had a few drinks and I told her what I'd decided to do She looked out the window a long long moment then she looked into my eyes She didn't have to say a thing I knew what she was thinkin'
Roll roll me away won't you roll me away tonight I too am lost I feel double crossed And I'm sick of what's wrong and what's right We never even said a word we just walked out and got on that bike And we rolled And we rolled clean out of sight
We rolled across the high plains Deep into the mountains Felt so good to me Finally feelin' free Somewhere along a high road The air began to turn cold She said she missed her home I headed on alone
Stood alone on a mountain top starin' out at the Great Divide I could go east I could go west it was all up to me to decide Just then I saw a young hawk flyin' and my soul began to rise And pretty soon My heart was singin'
Roll roll away I'm gonna roll me away tonight Gotta keep rollin' gotta keep ridin' keep searchin' till I find what's right And as the sunset faded I spoke to the faintest first starlight And I said next time Next time We'll get it right
