I drove up form a river town it was late September early October
Thought maybe I could clear my mind and see the leaves turn red
The tune's up and the window down
On a sky line drive when she bagged me over
Hallelujah what a beautiful morning
Were the first words that she said

Her eyes were blue as the sky on a perfect blue ridge day
She said I could use a lift if you're going my way and

I was, I was headed south I was headed out
Headed nowhere or anywhere we wanted to go
The road stretched out in front of us
And she was ready to run it just like I was

Told me she was twenty-two
And she'd just broken out of William and Mary
Another summer under her daddy's roof was all that she could do
Her boyfriend she cut him loose
Too cold for a wedding in January
She said thats enough about me tell me about you

I rambled on about broken harts and staying too long
She said I'm sorry but you were right to move on and

I was, I was headed south I was headed out
Headed nowhere or anywhere we wanted to go
The road stretched out in front of us
She was ready to run it just like I was

Ain't it funny how everything hinges on a twist of fate
She held my hand and said aren't you amazed and

I was, I was headed south I was headed out
Headed nowhere or anywhere we wanted to go
The road stretched out in front of us
And she ready to run it just like I was
