I Drive


Hold you the stranger

And baby you can sleep while I drive
There’s a chill in my bones
I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
Can’t you get that with me
The lover you’re free
Enough to get underway
Come on baby let’s get out of this town

I don’t want to be left alone
Come on baby let’s get out of this town
In my pocket I’ll carry my harp
I’ll go before night is through
And baby you can sleep while I drive
You’ve been looking for something
This mist that covers your eyes
Oh is it other arms you want to
And Barbara in Nashville says we’re welcome to stay

I’ll pack my bag and load up my guitar
And in the morning you can tell me your dreams
I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
And baby you can sleep while I drive
Won’t you take me with you
My intentions are true
I got some money I saved

We’ll go thorough Tucson up to Santa Fe
So baby you can sleep while I drive
You know I’ve seen it before
If you won’t take me with you
That’s not in your life
I’ll buy you glasses in Texas a hat from New Orleans
