Yeah!
Bring me water, bring me coal
We just missed hittin' that telephone pole
Yeah, we're fallin' down in a cactus patch
When it get dark, you light the match
Yeah, and I'm happy for it
Keep a-rollin' down that dusty road
Time to lighten up this load
No regrets, no should've-beens
Salvation waits for those who sin
Don't confuse the driver,
Gotta bottle it up and goand
Chorus:
Head for that big 5-0
Headed towards that big 5-0
Now, read the map, tell me how come
Interstate 49 jumped to 51
Yeah, somebody musta skipped that thing
Yeah, but we're on it now, and the mystery's closin' in
Midnight see the moonshine lightin' up the sky
Headlights on the highway, jus' hear the wind outside just sigh
Chorus:
Movin' towards that big 5-0
Headed towards that big 5-0
Now, who's that scarecrow I do see
In the mirror lookin' back at me
Some things you gotta take your shot
Half work out and half do not
The nickel laughs when it gets tossed
Yeah, we're bangin' on that drum now
And shake that rattlesnake
We're plowin' through 'til sunup,
Oh, just tryin' to stay awakeand we're
Chorus:
Headed towards that big 5-0
Headed towards that big 5-0
Repeat and fade:
Big 5-0
