Standing On The Highway

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Tryin' to bum a ride, tryin' to bum a ride,

Tryin' to bum a ride.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Tryin' to bum a ride, tryin' to bum a ride,

Tryin' to bum a ride.

Nobody seem to know me,

Everybody pass me by.

.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Tryin' to hold up, tryin' to hold up,

Tryin to hold up and be brave.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Tryin' to hold up, tryin to hold up and be brave.

One roads goin' to the bright lights,

The others goin' down to my grave.

.

Well, I'm lookin' down at two card,

They seem to be handmade.

Well, I'm lookin' down at two card,

They seem to be handmade.

One looks like it's the ace of diamonds,

The other looks like it is the ace of spades.

.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Watchin' my life roll by.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Watchin' my life roll by.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Tryin' to bum a ride.

.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Wonderin' where everybody went, wonderin' where everybody went,

Wonderin' where everybody went.

Well, I'm standin' on the highway

Wonderin' where everybody went, wonderin' where everybody went,

Wonderin' where everybody went.

Please mister, pick me up,

I swear I ain't gonna kill nobody's kids.

.

I wonder if my good gal,

I wonder if she knows I'm here,

Nobody else seems to know I'm here.

I wonder if my good gal,

I wonder if she knows I'm here,

Nobody else seems to know I'm here.

If she knows I'm here, Lawd,

I wonder if she said a prayer.
