Open Road Now

lyrics

She got the open road now, babe
Sat in that awful traffic for an hour and a half
Four lanes into one ain’t no one’s idea of fun
So ridiculous she had to laugh
She got the open road now, babe
Ain’t nothin’ gonna stand in her way
Sick and tired of him never ever getting it together
There wasn’t any reason to stay

Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
Stretchin’ out all wild and free
Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
Exactly where she oughta be

She got the open road now, babe
Got the window rolled down and the radio on
He didn’t think she’d do it but I’m pretty sure he knew it
When he opened up his eyes and she was already gone
She got the open road now, babe
Ain’t nothin’ rollin’ down on either side
With all the guilt that he could serve up
It was tough to get the nerve up
You know she’s feeling satisfied

Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
Stretchin’ out all wild and free
Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
And it ain’t nothin’ she don’t need it to be
She got the open road now, babe

Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
Like a river flowing out in the breeze
Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
She ain’t no fool like Thelma, got no crime like Louise

She got the open road now, babe
It’s time she got some peace of mind
When it turns into a noose, you know you gotta cut it loose
And while it’s frightening to leave it behind

Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
And it’s ok to be a little afraid
Ain’t nothin’ like the highway, babe
And to hell with all the games that he played
Ain’t nothin’ like the highway
Believe me, it was way more scary in the bed that he made
She got the open road now, babe
She got the open road now, babe
She got the open road now, babe
