Lyrics

Written by Ricky & Marty Wilde

[Note: these lyrics are not as accurate as may be expected. They were all deciphered by me, through listening hard to the song. If there are official lyrics out there, let me know.]

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Well here I'm going
I'm on the road again
Back street driving
I wanna go again

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Anytime you go I get so blue
Anytime I have I wanna spend with you
Hitch a ride I take a train (Gotta go)
Any road just means the same (Cos you know)
Anyway I wanna get to you

Well the wheels keep turning
I'm on the move again
Gotta keep turning
I'm really going again
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I'm not a back street driver
I gotta let you know
Back street driving
I really wanna go
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

One night we stood beneath the stars
You said the rebels always ain't that far
Wrap it up and here I go (Gotta go)
Shoot the chance I'm ready to roll (Cos you know)
Gonna ride on through the night with you

Well here I'm going
I'm on the road again
Back street driving
I wanna go again
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I'm not a back street driver
I'm just a back staying driver
Said oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Wrap it up and here I go (Gotta go)
Shoot the chance I'm ready to roll (Cos you know)
Gonna ride on through the night to you

Well here I'm going
I'm on the road again
Back street driving
I gotta go again
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I'm not a back street driver
I'm just a back staying driver
Said oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
