Key To The Highway

I got the key, yes to the highway
Billed out and bound to go
I will leave here a runnin' babe,
Cause walkin' is much too slow

I'm goin' back, yes to the delta
Where I am better known
Where they don't take a good man
So far away from home

So give me one, more kiss baby
Yes and then I will go
When I leave this highway
Wont be back no more

I see the sun, behind the mountain
Moon way up in the sky
Well I'll roam this highway baby
Until the day I die

So long, goodbye baby
Baby, baby, baby goodbye
I will roam this highway darlin'
Until the day I die

Cause I got the key, yes to the highway
Billed out and bound, billed out and bound to go
When I leave this town darlin' now
Won't be back no more
