Well, he's drinking down the bourbon like it was soda pop,
He's mortgaged out his blood for one more chance to breathe.
He picked up his bag and left the motel room,

Gotta get some miles behind him as fast as he can,

They tried to make it work; it was ruined from the start.

But there's no better place to play.
It's getting more lined every day.
Well, he's gonna write a letter and try to explain,
But something keeps him moving, living on through the night.
But as the night approaches, a change is in the air,
The music befriends him, it can take him anywhere.
It's a honky-tonk engagement,
His mind feels like crazy pavement,

Trying to quell a feeling he knows ain't gonna stop,

He picked up his bag and left the motel room,
