On the Road to You

© Glenn Woodell and Bill Miles 2014

Verse 1
I’m on the road to Austin, got three more hours to go
I just got back from Memphis, that was quite the show
After that I’m off two days but there’s no time to make it home
‘Cause then I’m due in Reno and the whole southwest I’ll roam

Verse 2
I’ll be on the road to Vegas then back to Santa Fe
Then I’m heading west to Tucson, just for one night I’ll stay
But don’t worry dear, I’ll soon be near, these five sweet words are true
Before too long I’ll be telling you I’m on the road to you

Chorus
I don’t mind the days, I hate the nights, but it’s got to be this way
It’s the life of a man who has to roam just to make his pay
I love the job, I hate the hours, but for now that’s what I do
But before too long I’ll be telling you I’m on the road to you

Verse 3
The Rockies sure are pretty but I’ve seen them too many times
I’ve passed the canyon a dozen times but couldn’t tell you what it’s like
I long to see the Smokies with their shades of gray and blue
‘Cause before too long I’ll be close by and on the road to you

Chorus
I don’t mind the days, I hate the nights, but it’s got to be this way
It’s the life of a man who has to roam just to make his pay
I love the job, I hate the hours, but for now that’s what I do
But before too long I’ll be telling you I’m on the road to you

Bridge
I long for nights without early days and a pillow by your head
I miss those nights of laughing and stories in the bed
I promise you that one day soon I’ll say these words to you
Let’s hit the road, get out of here, I’m on the road with you

Chorus
I don’t mind the days, I hate the nights, but it’s got to be this way
It’s the life of a man who has to roam just to make his pay
I love the job, I hate the hours, but for now that’s what I do
But before too long I’ll be telling you I’m on the road to you
Before too long I’ll be telling you I’m on the road to you
