Lyrics:

Lonesome highway,
frigid byway.
The only way to love her,
is to keep on running.
Oh, you're running fast.
But they say you need a rest.

Those city street lights,
sweet, smoggy nightlife.
Keeping up the energy,
You know it's not too hard to sustain.
Yeah, you're always up.
But they say it kills the best.
Still you put it to the test.


So kiss-off those city blues.
Strap on those walking shoes.
You can hear every-man's music,
If your taste runs the range.

Excuse your morning job.
Forget the sleep it's robbed.
Your soul needs the stimuli,
And your state-of-mind's got to have such a change.
Yeah, you need to laugh,
And I know you remember how.


Those desert roadways,
They're steaming all day.
If I ever find my canyon,
I'm going to rest my weary soul.
Oh that city pace,
Have they lost their way.
But they're just loving it day to day.


So kiss-off those city blues.
Strap on your walking shoes.
You can hear every-man's music,
If your taste runs the range.

Excuse your morning job.
Forget the sleep it's robbed.
Your soul needs the stimuli,
And your state-of-mind's got to have such a change.
Oh, you need to laugh,
I know you remember how.


So kiss-off those city blues.
Strap on your walking shoes.
You can hear every-man's music,
If your taste runs the range.

Excuse your morning job.
Forget the sleep it's robbed.
Your soul needs the stimuli,
And your state-of-mind's got to have such a change.
Yeah, you need to laugh,
Oh I hope you remember how.
Well I hope you remember how.
