Play Broke But Free
By Neil Dover

I can see your face superimposed on the interstate and God only knows
Where I’ll be at tomorrows close
A day away that’s the way it goes
So if I get up now I can get this load get this truck on down the road
Be a hundred miles from the east coast before the traffic closes up the road, yeah.
I’ll be long gone

I was picking up in southwest Eagle Pass, Texas
Gotta be a hot load hot day long road
Hundr’d eight in the shade gonna be a long day I’m the only gringo, bollio, amigo
I’m the only gringo

I’ll drive this road as far as it can go
I’m so far gone no matter where I go, I’m going home.

It’s so cold I can’t believe I’m out here when I could be
Wrapped up there with you kissing me
I could ditch this job be broke but free yeah.
Mmm be broke but free

Come midnight I’m on the road again
Cup of coffee’s my only friend
And the white line is my next of kin taking me back where I began

I’ll drive this road as far as it can go
I’m so far gone no matter where I go, I’m going home.
I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home
