Owh, there's a road, in Oklahoma
Straighter than a preacher
Longer than a memory
And it goes, forever onward
He's been a good teacher
For a lot of country boys like me

I push that load, from here to someday
I'll push as long as I'm alive
But I don't know how long I'll last
'Cause it's just a road, it ain't no highway
I'm blowin' by the double five
I know I'm going way too fast

I been down this road just searching' for the end
It don't go nowhere, it just brings you back again
Leaves you lonely and cold
Standin' on the shoulder
But you've come too far to go back home
So you're walkin' on a nowhere road

Some folks say, if you keep rollin'
And you keep it on the yellow line
It'll take you on the big highway
But there's a toll to pay
If you're going
The keeper at the gate is blind
So you better be prepared to pay

I been down this road just searching' for the end
It don't go nowhere, it just brings you back again
Leaves you lonely and cold
Standin' on the shoulder
But you've come too far to go back home
So you're walkin' on a nowhere road, hey
