lyrics

he was always on the road
running to the next big thing
running from demons of the past
running fast as his stride could swing

and the music spoke louder than she could
the tarmac song called through the miles
til he was not the man he was
when they first exchanged smiles

and he’s never, no he’s never going to stay
‘cause he’s wedded, yeah he’s wedded to that black highway

they met in a diner one morning
searching for a way to live
searching though neither one knew it
searching for one who could give
and her whisper sounded louder than the jukebox
and his skin hummed to the timbre of her voice
and their smiles touched and lit up
when their eyes shout the truth of their choice

but he’s never, no he’s never going to stay
‘cause he’s wedded, yeah he’s wedded to that black highway

she woke to the cold of his absence
lying in the loneliness of one
lying eyes had told her
that her lonely days and nights were done

but he was never going to stay
for more than a few days
look around and he’ll be gone
back to his one true home
the black highway

black highway

he gave his soul to the black highway

about

Jane Cameron Brisbane, Australia

beauty is... tears in laughter, small joys even in the midst of sorrow, a drifting feather, a cold beach, the wind over the ocean, cold fingers on the skin making your heart warm, storm clouds and lightning, rain, the sun through green leaves in the morning, voices singing, the rhythm of a drum, the beat of your heart, the sigh of your breath and moments of pure relaxation...and a ukulele helps. ... more
