they got a new freeway in my town
it just goes round and round and round
late at night when I'm missing you
knowing there's nothing I can do
I guess I'll just keep rolling on
until I find my way back home

chorus:
I'm gonna ride that midnight highway
till I find my way
back to you
though I know I'm going nowhere
I don't care
If I can drive away these blues

Something about the way I feel
each time I get behind the wheel
the way to you becomes so clear
though I know I can't get there from here
the wheels start turning in my mind
there's only one way I can unwind

repeat chorus.

I don't think there's another verse.
I'm looking for the chords to this song... any idea?
Karen

Boy this was an old request.

Listening to the recording on PR's "All on a Rising Day" album, there are slight differences from the lyrics Karen posted above:


Midnight Highway
Nicholson/Rowan
As recorded by Peter Rowan on "All on a Rising Day" (1991)

They got a new freeway in my town
That just goes round and round and round
And late at night, when I'm missing you
Knowing there's nothing I can do
The wheels start turning in my mind
There's only one way I can unwind

I'm gonna ride
That midnight highway
`Til I find my way
Back to you
Though I know
I'm going nowhere
I don't care
If I can drive away these blues

Something about the way I feel
Each time I get behind the wheel
The way to you becomes so clear
Though I know I can't get there from here
I guess I'll just keep rolling on
Until you find your way back home

I'm gonna ride
That midnight highway
`Til I find my way
Back to you
Though I know
I'm going nowhere
I don't care
If I can drive away these blues

(break)

The wheels start turning in my mind
There's only one way I can unwind

I'm gonna ride
That midnight highway
`Til I find my way
Back to you
Though I know
I'm going nowhere
I don't care
If I can drive away these blues

For copyright reasons, the Rowan lyrics are not on the internet.

Another completely changed version is sung by "Daphne Loves Derby," several sites, but not what you want. I think even the tune is changed.

Cluin, when was that Rowan album recorded? The withdrawal of lyrics may mean that a re-issue is out there.

And it's "I guess I'll just keep rolling on, until you find new way back home". And it's wrong position. First is "the wheels..." And then twice "I guess..."
