Some other versions of "Key to the Highway"


I've got the key to the highway
I am bound to go
I'm gonna roam this highway
Till my dying day

When the moon peeks over the mountain
Honey, I'll be on my way
I'm gonna roam this highway
Till my dying day

Give me one more, one more kiss, mama
Just before I go
'Cause when I leave here, baby
I won't be back, no, I won't be back anymore

To the highway
Oh, Lord, I'm out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here running
'Cause walking's much too slow
