I'm trying to find out who wrote the song (I think it's) "Two of a Kind." The chorus goes: Another midnight on the highway, Houston in the distance. Seems I'm always leaving love behind. Singing along with someone whose soul is on the radio Seems like me and the good old boy are two of a kind.
I searched ASCAP and BMI and there are many songs titled "Two of a Kind" but there are no lyrics listed.
Anyone know the answer?

I seem to hear Bill Staines' voice singing the chorus you've shown. So I'm guessing that he wrote the song. I've checked my Staines song books, and I don't find it there. I'll try to check through the recordings I have, and I'm thinking that I'll find it on one of those. Someone else will probably let you know for sure before I get back with anything more definite.

John Ims wrote this song- You can find it on Bill and Bonnie Hearnes album (you'll have to search their albums to see which one) I'm search for the lyrics also as I haven't sung this song in a while and I'm having a major brain block on one line. I would like to use it in a show next week.
If someone has the first verse I would appreciate it!

Here are the lyrics. copyright Rites of Passage Music (BMI)
Being on the road without a friend
Can you make feel life's loneliness
And a voice that rides the wind
Stream across the airwaves
In a simple country song
One that you don't hear until
the moon is full and bright
Well it's Texas once again
One about the good old boy
Whose caught remembering images of childhood
And the places that he'd been
Lost inside his questions wondering where it all would end
Another midnight on the highway Houston in the distance
It seems I'm always leaving love behind
Singing along with someone whose soul is on the radio
Sounds like me and the good old boy are two of kind
Been down in a cheap hotel
Keeps you in touch with an emptiness
Old pickers know too well
Comes on strong when you drop your boots
And you sit up on the bed
Trying to keep your thoughts from dancing all around your head
So you fumble with the dial
Till you hear that melody singing sad and sweet
There you are again with him somewhere down the line
Your feeling just a little bit better
When you hear his guitar whine
