Now I love the USA, And the other states
Ahh, they’re OK… Texas is the place I wanna be
And I don’t care if I ever go to Delaware anyway
Cause we got Stubbs, and Gruene Hall and Antone’s,
and John T’s Country Store
We’ve got Willie and Jacky Jack, Robert Earl, Pat,
Cory, Charlie and me… And so many more.
So screw you, we’re from Texas
Mystic highway that I’m on
Ooh ooh, take me home
Mystic highway that I ramble
Ooh ooh take me home.
This old road has been my lifeline,
My companion and my friend.
Like a rope around the universe,
Ain’t no beginning, ain’t no end.
I’m a rollin’ stone all alone and lost
For a life of sin I have paid the cost
When I pass by all the people say
Just another guy on the lost highway
Just a deck of cards and a jug of wine
And a woman’s lies makes a life like mine
O the day we met, I went astray
I started rolling down that lost highway
I was just a lad and nearly twenty-two
Neither good nor bad, just a kid like you
And now I’m lost, too late to pray
Lord, I’ve paid the cost on the lost highway
Quit your job… an’ hit the road…
See the world… an’ have some fun…
Go fishin’… every mornin’…
An’ take in… that risin’ sun…
Sleep all day… fuck the world…
Crank some Hank… an’ Johnny Cash…
Buy some bullets… shoot some guns…
Fill’er up… an’ burn some gas…
Spend what’s left… on some good times…
I don’t need… no fancy grave…
Just spread my ashes on the highway…
Because it’s my… fav…rite… place…
