Her husband left on saturday. For a woman who was half her age. Sunday she just laid in bed. With the covers pulled over her head.
But on Monday morning she woke up. And loaded up her pick-up truck. Took one last look at her old life. Then hit the gas, then said goodbye To all her jeans and her old baseball caps. Cause she knows for sure, she ain't comin' back.
This is a house she though She'd never spend this day Sitting behind the wheel, on the interstate. 40 was quite alright She's changing roads tonight. And its such a bittersweet Way to celebrate She's turning 50 today.
She left that Oklahoma town The only world she had know till now. Memories of those 20 years. She watched them in her rear-view mirror. Fade away Oh, but that's all right Yeah, this could be the time of her life.
This is a house she thought She'd never spend this day Sitting behind the wheel, on the interstate 40 was quite alright She's changing roads tonight And it's such a bittersweet way to celebrate She's turning 50 today.
Oh, her windows are down The wind blows her hair There she goes, could be anywhere
40 was quite alright But she's changing roads tonight Tomorrow's a mystery Oh, and she can't wait. She's turning 50 She's turning 50 She's turning 50 today
