Out on the trans-canada highway
There was a girl hitchhiking with her dog
Fireflies buzzin' round her head
Like candles in the fog.

He was three miles down the road
Tryin' to stay up, but he knew that he couldn't
She was looking for a ride through the night
But out there, who wouldn't.

They were bound for glory
Bound for living on the edge
They were bound for each other
Like two comets heading for a bed.

She had a new way of living
New way of looking at life
He had an '84 international and two kids
He left back home with his wife.

He was tired of writin' letters to himself
And living in the dark
She was open to suggestions
And some say she had a broken heart.

He had everything he wanted
'til it all turned out to be a job
One fallen asleep trucker
And a girl hitchhiking with her dog.

They were bound for glory
Bound for living on the edge
They were bound for each other
Like two comets heading for a bed.

She had a new way of living
New way of looking at life
He had an '84 international and two kids
He left back home with his wife.

Out on the trans-canada highway
The sun came climbing up the cab
By the time it hit the window they were wakin' up
From what little sleep they had.

When that heat hit the blankets
They were looking for love at second sight
Just starin' in each others' eyes
Findin' it in the mornin' light.

They were bound for glory
Bound for living on the edge
They were bound for each other
Like two blankets layin' on a bed.

She had a new way of living
New way of looking at life
He had an '84 international and two kids
He left back home with his wife.
