Country Highway

I'm going down this country highway

going 'round beneath the sun that leads my way

and though I wish that you would follow,

knowing you I know I'll be alone tomorrow.

I'll be talking to the blackbirds for a blackbird cannot speak.

I'll be talking about a girl I knew and why I move my feet.

I'll be sleeping in the shadows where the morning sun won't see

for she doesn't seem to care much about me.

I'll be singing to the clouds a song that's sure to make them cry

and the long grass will be swaying when the sad wind passes by

and the trees will shelter me the way I wanted you to do

but I'll still be just a stranger passing through.

And where this dusty road is ending

I guess if I keep on going, there I'll be.

And though I see places for hiding

no one's going to come along and try to find me.

You'll forget to hear my footsteps when I've gone beyond your eyes

and I haven't changed you now no matter how hard I have tried

so I'll be telling rocks and mountain streams how lonely I can be

for I know they won't be listening to me.

There's a lyric video of this song which you can find here, and you can get this track from Amazon here. The rough cut video was posted on YouTube on 2/21/09 - click here to watch that video. That video has a few different words.
