Lyrics
'Til I Run Out of Highway (Revisited)
Harry Wendell Hall

Verse 1
We drove across country in a camper on a beat-up old pickup truck.
A five-piece band five months behind on luck.
No place to play, nobody would pay, to hear us in Georgia.
So we didn't stop the rig until we'd driven on through Louisiana.

Verse 2
We spent about a month in Dallas and a week in El Paso.
And we tried our luck in Tucson and Phoenix also.
And it seems like the natural thing we'd wind up here in LA.
Not so much because we wanted to be here we just ran out of highway.

Chorus
The sunset sure is pretty out here in Los Angeles.
But I still love to feel that nice warm Georgia [Florida] breeze.
And someday I'll have my say. I can afford to have my way.
I'm gonna pack up my truck, I gonna drive it out of town, 'til I run out of highway.

Bridge
The business has been pretty good out here on the west coast.
I think we played every show from Yakima to San Diego.
And I guess I shouldn't complain about the way things have been.
But sometimes I'd rather be fishing on a cool Carolina morn.

{Repeat Chorus}
