I set off in a flatbed truck
Down the ladder, down on my luck
Got a map of the lower 48
Took the first ramp headed down the interstate
I had a wife, but she wouldn't have me
Left a job, a livin', and a family
There was nothin' to keep me; no reason to stay
I went lookin' for nothin' down the blue highway

And we watched our lives go racin' by
The years rolled on in a haze
We took time for this, time for that
But we never took time babe
For the blue highways, highways
For the blue highway, highway

Why did I ever have any doubts
I didn't need to figure it out
But out on the road when the nights get black
I whistle a tune hey, I'm never goin' back

And we watch our lives go racin' by
The years rolled on in a haze
We took time for this, time for that
Let's take a little time baby
For the blue highways, highways

We spent wasted days believin'
We see something past ourselves
Yeah we lock our doors behind us
'Cause we know this life so well
We never make the deadlines
That other people set
We speculate about justice
While we're grabbin' what we can get
Get out on the highway
The blue highway

There's people in the world
You never want to meet
Out in the alleys, down in the streets
There's people hurtin' people
People full of hate
People fishin' blindly usin' money for bait

We watch our lives go racin' by
The years rolled on in a haze
We took time for this, time for that
But we never took time baby
For the blue highways, highways
For the blue highways, highways
Let's take a little time, for the blue highways
The blue, the blue highways
