"Ghosts of the Highway" Lyrics

Ghosts of the Highway


Somewhere on the highway

Near the Washington state line

Is a rest stop haunted by the ghost of

What I left behind


You didn’t meant to hurt me

I didn’t have a choice

But when I drive by with the windows down

I still hear your voice, singing…


(ad lib)


Every love that dies

Lies in a shallow grave

And the things that won’t stay buried make it

Hard to turn the page


So I push the pedal down

Till I’m going way too fast

Even at ninety miles an hour though

I can’t outrun the past


(C) Ghosts in my head

Ghosts of the highway

Ghosts in my head

Ghosts of the highway


We crossed a continent together

From the east into the west

And everywhere between our love’s

Remains are laid to rest

Every time I find a new way

And I think I’m moving on

I end up on another road

That’s haunted by your song


(ad lib)


I’ve met another girl

But every time I say her name

I worry that her love will end up

Buried just the same


I wonder where you are tonight

I look up at the sky

I hope that you don’t think of me

And aren’t still haunted by…


(C)
