Country Highways

I like to drive country highways
The you go your way I'll go my ways
See how time forgot our American byways
I like to drive country highways

32 to 23
5 and 20 headed east
Farmland closing in on Main St
Far as anybody's eyes can see

You can keep your toll roads
Your eight-lane wide got no soul roads
I'll take the quiet small town slow roads every time

Fading houses with cherry red doors
Christmas tree farms general stores
Open quarries and shuttered-down resorts
Churches built before the wars

You can keep your toll roads
Your eight-lane wide got no soul roads
I'll take the quiet small town slow roads every time

23 to 32 
GPS will find the scenic route
I love you baby but there's things I gotta do
Sometimes I take the long road back to you

You can keep your toll roads
Your eight-lane wide got no soul roads
I'll take the quiet small town slow roads every time

I like to drive country highways
