Willie P. Bennett's link is dead and we don't have a copy of the lyrics. Wikipedia says he died in 2008.

WHITE LINE appears on Willie P. Bennett's album "Tryin' to Start Out Clean" (1975).

It has also been recorded by Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, John Starling, Jonathan Edwards, and Pure Prairie League.

WHITE LINE
(Willie P. Bennett)
As sung by Pure Prairie League on "Alive in America" (2011)

Cold and lonely on the road, Lord, I wish I had a hole to climb in.
Summer's warm rain sure ain't comin'; Lord, it seems to me I'm thumbin' once again.

Tired and hungry once again, sleet keeps comin' down on top of me.
I wish to the Lord I had a warm coat an' a hat so I could see

CHORUS: Standin' by a midnight highway,
'Scuse me, sir; are you goin' my way?
On an' on the endless white line goes.
You know, that could 'a' been me you're list'nin' to on your radio.
It could 'a' been warm inside or someplace 'stead o' standin' here in the snow.

Sunny days are what I pray for, sunshine burnin' down on my skin.
Get on south to the Teton Mountains; Lord, it seems to me I'm thumbin' once again.

CHORUS TWICE

Standin' by a midnight highway,
'Scuse me, sir; are you goin' my way?
On an' on the endless white line goes.
On an' on the endless white line goes.
On an' on the endless white line goes.
On it goes.

If you're still looking for chords:

[Gsus] [G] [Gsus] [G]

[G]Cold and lonely on the road,[Gsus] [G] Lord, I wish I had a hole to [D] climb in.
[G]Summer's warm rain sure ain't comin';[Gsus] [G] Lord, it seems to me I'm thumbin'[D] once again.

[G]Tired and hungry once again,[Gsus] [G] sleet keeps comin' down on top of [D]me.
[G]I wish to the Lord I had a warm coat [Gsus] [G]an' a hat so I could [D] see

CHORUS: [C] Standin' by a [D] midnight highway,
[C]'Scuse me, sir; are you goin' my way?
[G]On an' on the [F] endless white line [C] goes.[G]

For Gsus, just drop your first finger on the first fret, second string. - 320013
It sounds like he might be throwing in a Dsus at the end of the lines too. - X00233

I was lucky enough to obtain a few of Willie's harps. Hopin' they still have some of his mojo on 'em. The last song I ever heard Willie play was Stardust at Jackie Washington's 88th birthday party. That's the last time I ever saw Jackie too.

I love this version of Hoagy's song: Willie's version of Stardust

Many thanks to PHJim. I've loved White Line since the first time I heard the Seldom Scene do it - back at the Red Fox in Bethesda,MD
