Lyrics

throw it in the bag I’m heading down south
gonna see what freedom is all about
I’ve been thinking to myself out loud
I gotta get out of this cage somehow

I’m coming on up to Tennessee lines
where the air is thick with hope and rhyme
see the devil on the side of that road
I close my eyes and keep going

they say hard living makes you stronger
but I wonder could they be wrong
they say how you get to where you’re going
is just by going, so I keep going on
until the hard living is gone

talking with a trucker up from New Orleans
hauling 40 nights and for 40 days
hasn’t seen his wife and kids in that long
but you do what you gotta do to get on

said he was coming on up to Tennessee lines
rolling over hills with the sun in eyes
saw the devil on the side of that road
he hit the gas and kept going

they say hard living makes you stronger
but I wonder could they be wrong
they say how you get to where you’re going
is just by going, so I keep going on
until the hard living is gone

no matter how far you crawl
this pavement stays the same
no matter how far you crawl
nobody knows your name
nobody knows your name

they say hard living makes you stronger
but I wonder could they be wrong
they say how you get to where you’re going
is just by going, so I keep going on
until the hard living is gone
