Back to You Can Sleep While I Drive lyrics

You Can Sleep While I Drive

Come on baby, let's get out of this town
I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
There's a chill in my bones, I don't wanna be left alone
So baby you can sleep while I drive

I'll pack my bag and load up my guitar
In my pocket, I'll carry my harp
I got some money I saved enough to get underway
And baby you can sleep while I drive

We'll go thorough Tucson up to Santa Fe
And Barbara in Nashville says we're welcome to stay
I'll buy you glasses in Texas a hat from New Orleans
And in the mornin' you can tell me your dreams

You know I've seen it before this mist that covers your eyes
You've been looking for something that's not in your life
My intentions are true, won't you take me with you?
And baby you can sleep while I drive

Oh, is it other arms you want to?
Hold you the stranger
The lover you're free
Can't you get that with me?

Come on baby let's get out of this town
I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
If you won't take me with you, I'll go before night is through
And baby you can sleep while I drive
