Highway Junkie
Written by Chris Knight Performed by Randy Travis on Full Circle LP

100 cups of coffee
500 cigarettes
a thousand miles of highway
and I aint forgot her yet
But I keep on moovin
I keep movin down the line

There aint nothin in my mirror
just a cloud of dust and smoke
but what do you expect when some ole trucker heart gets broke
yea truckers hearts get broke

But them big wheels o rubber
gonna rubb her off my mind
I’m a highway junkie
I need that ole white line

Ten miles out of Nashville I was doin a hundred and one
State boy pulled me over said wheres the fire son
He said wheres the fire son
I said man there aint no fire
I’m just runnin from a flame
Go on and write your ticket
I’m aint the one to blame
That county judge tried to rob me blind

Them big wheels o rubber
gonna rubb her off my mind
I’m a highway junkie
I need that ole white line
(Fiddle Jam)

So I rolled on down the memphis
I had nothen left to loose
I wanted to hear some rock and roll
but all they played was blues
I didnt want to hear no blues

So I went to call up Elvis
and Roger Miller grabbed the phone
He said drive that eighteen wheeler boy
your the king of the road
said I was the king of the road

and them big wheels o rubber
gonna rubb her off my mind
I’m a highway junkie
I need that ole white line

I’m a highway junkie
I need that ole white line
