Some other versions of "Key to the Highway"

I've got the key to the highway
Billed out and bound to go
I'm gonna leave here, runnin'
Because walkin' is most too slow

I'm going back to the border
Where I'm better known
'Cause you haven't done nothin'
But drove a good man away from home

Give me one mo' kiss, mama
Just befo' I go
'Cause when I'm leavin' here
I won't be back no mo'

When the moon
Peep o'vr the mountain
Honey, I'll be on my way
I'm gonna walk this highway
Until the break of day

Well, it's so-long, so-long, baby
I must say good-bye
I'm gonna roam this highway
Until the day I die.
