Highway 59 (Larry W. Jones 10/12/2006) (song#4051)



This rig that I’m a-drivin’ is rollin’ mighty fine
I’m still survivin’ this old life on Highway 59
It’s a long way from Laredo up to Canada
I’ve seen it all seems like a hundred times

Rollin’ up Highway 59 to the Harris County line
This Southwest Freeway has no sex appeal
I’ll be home tonight when I see that Eastex sign
Where my sweet darlin’s cookin’ up my meal

Coffee she’ll have ready along with cowboy stew
And my Texas cowgirl has her kisses ready too
I’m tired from drivin’ but I’m feelin’ mighty fine
Rollin’ toward a Texas rodeo up Highway 59

I’ve wrestled this old Peterbilt all the way from Laredo
Black top and concrete and the goin’s sometimes slow
But when I hear that top gear whine, I just can’t wait
To unwind where love is fine in the Lone Star state

Coffee she’ll have ready along with cowboy stew
And my Texas cowgirl has her kisses ready too
I’m tired from drivin’ but I’m feelin’ mighty fine
Rollin’ toward a Texas rodeo up Highway 59
