It was the year of 1946
The war was just a memory
There was a young man
Spending his last dollar
Cheerfully
That airplane didn't look too ready
To tame the north country
That was a dream
That would scare the hell out of people
Like you and me.

He sees the highways in the sky
Highways in the sky
Other people just squint their eyes
He sees the highways in the sky.
He sees the highways in the sky.

What makes a young man's dreams have wings
While others fear to fall
What makes him see a world so big
And want to take it and make it small
Take all of his money
And take his whole life
And gamble the whole damn thing
What makes him want to get closer
To hearing the songs that the angels sing

He sees the highways in the sky
Highways in the sky
Other people just squint their eyes
He sees the highways in the sky.
He sees the highways in the sky.

Now it's 1984
The old days have faded away
There goes a jet bound for Honolulu
With that old name on the tail
Years of fighting rules
And battling fools
And thin-lipped government men
Won't stop three hundred souls
From reaching Honolulu
Or that dream from playing over again

He sees the highways in the sky
Highways in the sky
Other people just squint their eyes
He sees the highways in the sky.
He sees the highways in the sky.
