Where You Get Off (Rory Bourke/Jamie Ferrugia/Richard Wold)

He’s driving a diesel out of Detroit City bound for Birmingham

Loaded down with brand new cadillacs

Twenty years on the road at 38 cents a mile

Knows he’ll never drive what’s hanging on the back

She’s leaving the blues in Baton Rouge for a job in Tennessee

Hoping for a geographic cure

Chevy runnin’ on borrowed time loaded down with all she owns

Will she make it, she can’t say for sure

And the road goes on


Sometimes you take the road sometimes the road takes you

Somewhere you least expect it to

You can drive ‘til you’re weary you can drive ‘til you’re lost

But the only choice you ever get to make

Is where you get off

At a little diner off 65 he eased that big rig in

She was sittin’ at the counter on her second cup

She turned and smiled at him glanced at the empty chair

Next to her, without a word she’d said enough

Started talkin’ about their dreams and places they’d like to go

He laughed and winked and mentioned Mexico

She said if I could trade my Chevy in for one of your Escalades

You know, Tennessee just might have to wait

And the road goes on

(Repeat Chorus)

Two days later when the troopers came that truck held one less Escalade

A worn out Chevy sittin’ up there in its place

They turned that Chevy inside out ‘till they found his scribbled note

Grinned and shook their heads at what he wrote

(Repeat Chorus)
