Back in 1958 we drove an old V8 and when it'd gone a hundred thou' we got out and pushed it a mile

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

Headin' down from Canada on a gravel road a mile from Montana
Then my Daddy read a sign and took us in the wrong direction
I asked my Daddy where are we goin', he said we'll just follow
Our nose, so I looked out the window and dreamed I was a cowboy

We didn't know who we were, we didn't know what we did
We were just on the road

I met a girl in a truck cafe, fell in love almost right away
Then the Mercury was ready to go and I had to leave her
