2 cups of coffee and I'm back on the road
80 miles to Memphis, is what the lady told
She smiled and thanked me, when she picked up my change
Says "you have a safe trip, stay out of the rain"

[Chorus]
I'm lookin' through the windshield
Holding back the night
I'm lookin' through the windshield
For the morning light

The song on the radio, it used to make you cry
I only heard the last verse, then it passed me by
I asked you long ago, what you wanted in this life
A long way from Memphis, you became my wife

[Chorus]

The coat you wore last winter, is the only thing you left behind
I know its warm in Memphis, but you might need it some time
Its 40 miles to Memphis, but its best to pass on through
Its the only I took away that I can give back to you

[Chorus]

I'm lookin' through the windshield
No end in sight
I'm lookin' through the windshield
For the morning light
