Highway Song
(Words & Music by Keith Brown)

Now I've been out upon the road for hours, don't it seem?
But through the miles I've been all smiles, and in my eye, a gleam -
Now daddy had to do something so that he could celebrate,
So I made me up this little song to sing along the way -

Nothing's gonna stop me tonight, now Illinois's behind me,
Looks like I'm making progress finally,
Nothing's gonna stop me tonight because a little girl sits home awaiting
Her daddy's car, anticipating...
We'll have such good times, we'll make laugh and we'll make rhyme,
Sweet child, I've missed your smile and I've thought of you now all this time,
Now when they took you off I thought it was a sin,
‘Cause I’ll get to know you better just to take you back again -

And nothing's gonna stop me tonight, well I sure am back out on the road
Just like I was in days of old when nothing ever seemed to go right,
And the night time held a lonely song, but then sweet child you came along and
Showed your old man the things this world is all made of,
I've always played the wild man, child,
Yet where you're concerned I'm strictly love -
Now when they took you off I thought it was a sin
'Cause I'll get to know you better just to take you back again,
And take you back again…

Sweet child, I'd hit the road again and again
If I knew you'd be there at the end of the line -
Funny what love can do to the strongest of men,
And you've been laying heavy on my mind honey, all of this time -

And nothing's gonna stop me tonight, so let the rubber squeal, the engine whine,
As this old boy rolls down the line passing everything that's in sight,
Wishing he had wings on this old car, he's once again the highway star,
We'll have such good times, we'll make laugh and we'll make rhyme,
Sweet child, I've missed your smile and I've thought of you now all this time,
Now when they took you off I thought it was a sin,
‘Cause I’ll get to know you better just to take you back again,
And take you back again, you know it never ends.

Now I've been out upon the road, a little girl to see,
The coffee shops at the all-night stops are calling out for me,
Sweet child, the time will come one day, and it's then you'll understand
Of the love, the fun within the one that you call your old man,
Well, I'm your biggest fan, you know I am…
