I'm never going back to Jackson
I couldn't bear to show my face
I nearly killed you with my drinking
Wouldn't be caught dead in that place

Lonely highway, only friend
You've got me to keep you warm again

Lonely highway, don't you cry
Let me hold you in my arms tonight

And as I hurdled down the highway
Passed the factories and the graves
I think of all the years I've wasted
