Lyrics


Took a look down a westbound road,

right away I made my choice

Headed out to my big two-wheeler,

I was tired of my own voice

Took a bead on the northern plains

and just rolled that power on


Twelve hours out of Mackinaw City

stopped in a bar to have a brew

Met a girl and we had a few drinks

and I told her what I'd decided to do

She looked out the window a long long moment

then she looked into my eyes

She didn't have to say a thing,

I knew what she was thinkin'


Roll, roll me away,

won't you roll me away tonight

I too am lost, I feel double-crossed

and I'm sick of what's wrong and what's right

We never even said a word,

we just walked out and got on that bike

And we rolled

And we rolled clean out of sight


We rolled across the high plains

Deep into the mountains

Felt so good to me

Finally feelin' free


Somewhere along a high road

The air began to turn cold

She said she missed her home

I headed on alone


Stood alone on a mountain top,

starin' out at the Great Divide

I could go east, I could go west,

it was all up to me to decide

Just then I saw a young hawk flyin'

and my soul began to rise

And pretty soon

My heart was singin'


Roll, roll me away,

I'm gonna roll me away tonight

Gotta keep rollin, gotta keep ridin',

keep searchin' till I find what's right

And as the sunset faded

I spoke to the faintest first starlight

And I said next time

Next time

We'll get it right
