On the Way Home

Pontiac Catalina, 1983
Past midnight, West Virginia, coal country
On the Way Home, On the Way Home

Cigarette in the ashtray, wet tires that sing
Love letters in the glove box with a diamond ring
On the Way Home, On the Way Home

Chorus
On The Way Home, I'm callin' your name
Crack the window, to stay awake
Well I've been through the ringer
‘Cause the kindness of strangers
In that town, never did feel the same
On the Way Home, On the Way Home

Scale jumpin' semi's on the Alleghany side
Better stay off of that center line
On the Way Home, On the Way Home

AM gospel static, hung up in the trees
The Book of Revelations on the front seat
On the Way Home, On the Way Home

Chorus
On The Way Home, I'm callin' your name
Crack the window, to stay awake
Well I've been through the ringer
‘Cause the kindness of strangers
In that town, never did feel the same
On the Way Home, On the Way Home

Bridge
High beams searching for my desire
Coolant that gives me its heat tonight

So will you just be my lover, or will you be my wife?
I've got 200 miles alone tonight
On the Way Home, On the Way Home

Chorus
On The Way Home, I'm callin' your name
Crack the window, to stay awake
Well I've been through the ringer
‘Cause the kindness of strangers
In that town, never did feel the same
On the Way Home, On the Way Home...
