Rollin' down the road in the heart of Texas
Drivin' band playin' country western
Drivin' all night trying to make the next gig
Sure ain't gettin' any rested

With the highway below and the Lord above me
On the telephone sayin', "don't cry, honey"
Tryin' to make enough to keep the motor runnin'
Sure I ain't in it for the money

This ain't check cashin' country
Ain't check cashin' country

Nights are gettin' long and the miles are showin'
Life of a country rock and roll band
Lookin' out for the highway patrolman
Love to stick around, we got to go man

Wake up to the sound of the tires on the highway
Pull into a truck stop, poured me a coffee
Lord knows the miles that have gone behind me
Sure I ain't in it for the money

This ain't check cashin' country
Ain't check cashin' country, naw-ha

I hear that tip jars got a jangle
'Cause we ain't got a single on the radio
We may go dancing wherever we go
Tryin' to turn a nickel, to solid country gold

It goes T for Texas and Tennessee
We got miles to cover and places to be
The highways' the only kind of life for me
Sure ain't in it for the money

This ain't check cashin' country
Ain't check cashin' country, naw-ha
No, it ain't

I hear that tip jars got a jangle
'Cause we ain't got a single on the radio
We may go dancing wherever we go
Tryin' to turn a nickel, to solid country gold

It goes T for Texas and Tennessee
We got miles to cover and places to be
If y'all don't two-step, then we don't eat
Sure ain't out here for the money

This ain't check cashin' country
Ain't check cashin' country
Country
Country, oh
This ain't check cashin' country
No, it ain't
