One Of Them Old Highway Places
 
Lyrics
VERSE
We started out pretty good, oh, you and me
Headin' down the road cool as we could be
Movin' around all over town; goin' up the country, too
Everything lookin' really good, baby, just me and you (but it was)

CHORUS
In one of them old highway places, oh, where the rattlesnakes hide
In one of them old highway places where dreams are rarely satisfied (it was)
In one of them old highway places, I got all twisted up inside
When you were lovin' on him, you assassinated my pride

VERSE
Now I guess I was not very good at checkin' out what's ahead
'Cause we stopped off at a place where angels fear to tread
I thought we had it made; me and you against the world
But I guess it was the pull of the whiskey that pulled you to him, girl (it was)

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
There's lots of joy in them old places
But there's a bad side of it, too

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
It was in one of them old highway places where the rattlesnakes hide

Description
Short Song Description:
Hook up. Stop at a roadside bar. Loses her to another guy.
Long Song Description:
They hook up. Riding his bike (goin' up the country). Stop at "one of them old highway places" where she gets involved with another biker, succumbing to the "pull of the whiskey."
Story Behind the Song:
In the Delbert McClinton song "Victim Of Life's Circumstances," there is the line "But I stopped in one of them old highway places." Having done so myself (with good and bad results), I always liked the line. I decided to make a song out of it.
