Off The Vine

from Road Songs by Alex McMurray



we’re out there somewhere with a ways to go
with the all night music on the radio
who’s that singing and what’s that song?
sun’s coming up Texas is soft and green
listen to the rattle of this old machine
gonna ride that rattle all nite long
we might be nowhere we might be right where we belong

heads full of wind and the roads been rough
i sometimes wonder have we seen enough
did we leave a little hasty? leave some thing behind?
might be Memphis could be Cheyenne
but i can’t recognize this highway man
but the feeling out here is oh so fine
hang on baby i think we might be falling off the vine

took a wrong turn yesterday
just kept right on going
sometimes you got to lose your way
if you want to make it home
so hang on baby hang on

might go east might go west take the wheel i got to get some rest
gonna stare a little while at the telephone line
sun comes up sun goes down sun’s gonna find us in another town
not lost yet but there’s still time
let’s both hang i think we might be falling off the vine
aw hang on hang on baby hang on
hang on hang on baby hang on
hang on whoo hoo baby hang on
