Roll With Me, Roll With Me


I discovered this song a year or so ago and every once in a while I come across it via my iTunes shuffle. I always sing it out loud, like I did today while tooling around town in the pickup, but it fits best when I'm out on the road in the big rig.

Holly Williams is the granddaughter of Hank Williams, Sr., and the daughter of Hank Williams, Jr.  The talent was evidently passed down trough the generations.

Here are the lyrics if you want to sing along:




THE HIGHWAY
Holly Williams


I've been sitting here wondering if I'll ever get
Back to those wheels, will I ever be
Changing those strings out before nine
I am wishing for the life that I used to live
Giving everything that I had to give
In a brand new city 'bout every night

Missing those nights, missing that sky, I been missing home

Missing their smiles, missing those miles, I been missing home

Out there on the highway, out there on the open road

Ooh baby will you roll with me, roll with me
Head down to New Orleans
I should be wearing out the blacktop
Out there with the boys I love
Everybody will you roll with me, roll with me
Running down this dream
And get me out there on the highway

I've been sitting here asking him every night

For a brand new song and a piece of mind
The road is all I think about these days
All I need is out there, I will be just fine
With a 6 string guitar and a jug of wine
When the lights go down around that stage

Missing those nights, missing that sky, I been missing home

Yeah, I been missing home

Out there on the highway, out there on the open road

Ooh baby will you roll with me, roll with me
Head down to New Orleans
I should be wearing out the blacktop
Out there with the boys I love
Everybody will you roll with me, roll with me
Running down this dream

I miss the sound of rubber rolling out my window

And that crescendo the highway brings
Oh, these wheels are gonna keep me spinning all my days
Out here on the highway

Out there on the highway, out there on the open road

Ooh baby will you roll with me, roll with me
Head down to New Orleans
I should be wearing out the blacktop
Out there with the boys I love
Everybody will you roll with me, roll with me
Everybody come and roll with me, roll with me
And get me out there on the highway
Oh oh, ooh ooh yeah

Roll with me, roll with me

Yeah honey will you roll with me, roll with me
Out there on the highway
