C.w. MccallOld 30

(Bill Fries, Chip Davis) She was mud and sand and concrete Mixed with water made a' tears From the rivers runnin' down the Great Divide She was three thousand miles Of rockin', rollin' highway A million mem'ries long and two lanes wide Far across the wide Missouri To the ol' Wyomin' line From the Jersey shore to San Francisco Bay She was known to all the truckers As the mighty Lincoln Highway But to me, she's still Old 30 all the way Now the Interstate goes screamin' through the backyard of her life But it just don't send those shivers down my spine So before I take that exit To the Highway In The Sky I'm gonna take Old 30 one more time She was radiators boilin' In the burnin' summer sun And a blizzard blowin' wild across the plains She was tumbleweeds a-rollin' In the gentle winds of Fall And the lights of old Grand Island in the rain She was mud and sand and concrete Mixed with water made a' tears From the rivers runnin' down the Great Divide She was three thousand miles Of rockin', rollin' highway A million mem'ries long and two lanes wide Now the Interstate goes screamin' through the backyard of her life But it just don't send those shivers down my spine So before I take that exit To the Highway In The Sky I'm gonna take Old 30 one more time One more time
